Welcome to Monarch

Meticulously conceived from the ground up as a space to foster creativity and capture the results.

Carefully tuned acoustics, lighting, equipment, climate, and facilities come together to create a world-class studio that brings out the best in artists and producers.

Artists

Monarch is home to a diverse group of internationally acclaimed artists and producers

“Monarch is one of the best studios I have ever worked in! Tom and his staff made me feel at home right away and worked incredibly fast and hard to help make my sessions there smooth and fun. The gear is a perfect combo of tube, vintage and modern also making Monarch one of the best sounding rooms I have worked in.”

– Adam Lasus, Producer (Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Yo La Tengo)

“Monarch Studios has all the technology, gear, and amenities of a modern, top-tier studio, but there’s nothing sterile or clinical here – it’s a breeding ground for creativity and experimentation, with all the tools to capture the moments that should be captured on a great recording. And the people employed at Monarch are a bunch of sweethearts. Whether it’s the owner, or whichever engineer happens to be there, or the runners, they’re all just good people.”

– Said the Whale

“Monarch has become one of my main go-to spots. It has a variety of gear that suits me really well and forethought has gone into the interconnectivity between the rooms and control room that allows for creativity and quick change ups. It’s also has a great feel to it – clean, bright, but also down home enough to feel like you can put your feet up when you need to.”

– Howard Redekopp, Producer (Tegan and Sara, Mother Mother, The New Pornographers)
