Gin Blossoms Frontman Turns Historical Landmark Into World-Class Recording Studio

No doubt the Muses were whispering to Gin Blossoms lead singer Robin Wilson when he founded Uranus Recording in Tempe, Arizona. Tempe is named after the Vale of Tempe near Mount Olympus in Greece - a mythological hotspot frequented by the Muses that inspire the creative process. Robin's creativity was certainly working overtime when he was inspired to turn a local historical landmark into a world-class Arizona recording studio.

Uranus Recording is a Tempe music studio in the Tempe Creamery Complex, a registered historic landmark valued for its role as the hub of the town's agricultural and economic development beginning at the turn of the 19th century. Robin founded his Tempe recording studio in 1994 as a rehearsal and music production room for the Gin Blossoms. He took it retro with an Atomic Age vibe creating a 22' x 24' x 10' Live Room featuring hand made acoustic treatments. This Arizona music studio included a 1917 bank vault that Robin converted into a custom isolation booth.

Around 1999, Robin channeled his experiences as a platinum selling recording artist into a new arena - producing. At Uranus Recording, then known as Mayberry Studios, he began producing and engineering records for several local bands, and facilitating productions for some of the finest local bands around including Dead Hot Workshop, Pollen, Lee Hazelwood and Al Casey, Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers, and many more. 

Those are just a few of the names who've added their names to Uranus' famous signature bathroom wall, forever documenting their permanent place in the rich history of this historical landmark turned Tempe recording studio.  But you don't have to be a big name in rock music to add your name to the impressive list of musicians who have recorded here. Anyone can rent the space - freelancers are welcome.  Services offered include record producing, audio engineering, music editing and audio production.  Uranus is also available as a film, photo, or video location.  This Tempe based facility offers the lowest rates anywhere for a Professional recording studio.  Featuring: Pro Tools HD with control surface, master clock, and tons of plug ins, Class-A backline and vocal chain featuring 12 Neve Mic Pres, a large living room, isolation booth, and more vibe and history than any other studio in Arizona.

In Greek mythology, Uranus is the god of the Heavens - god of the Sky. Uranus Recording aspires to be a similar source of creative inspiration. So whether you're looking to rehearse and record a #1 hit, host a private concert for a radio broadcast or shoot a music video, Tempe music studio Uranus Recording has the gear and atmosphere you need - professionally and personally - for quality music production and a really good time.
