Getting York Street Studios on to RP has taken more years than we care to remember but at long last we are delighted to bring a fantastic insight in to the studio that we hear so much of and have so long wanted to feature!
Clint Murphy, who up until recently was based at York Street Studios, before moving to the UK, returned with producer Greg Haver in Jan 2010 to work with two bands so he recorded a walk through tour. Captain Hook, Clint's 'replacement' used his camera to video Clint on the walk through and will apear on his own interview.
We can't speak from first hand experience but we have met so many people that rave on about York Street that we know it's a great place and after watching this tour we're pretty sure that you'll be booking a ticket to New Zealand, we are saving up now!
Visit York Street Studios website and be sure to visit them soon! Special thanks to everyone at York Street Studios for their help in making this possible, to Jeremy, Hook and Clint Murphy!
More York Street Studio videos will be here soon!
