Tucked into a vintage music and antique store in Gravenhurst, Rob Currie Recording is an eclectic, cosy space.

Rob’s style in the studio emerges from his geek-level love of uncommon vintage equipment, deep knowledge of music history and interest in authentic sound produced through the use of natural reverb and analogue effects. With an appreciation for realistic, “human” qualities in recorded music,  Rob embraces honest sound and happy accidents.  He has an experimental approach to tracking and is adventurous when it comes to mic placement and ambient sound.
