**** We have been receiving so many messages about the situation on Grant Avenue here in Hamilton regarding the fire at #34 on April 30th. We thank everyone for the outpouring of well-wishes and we are okay. The studio has sustained some damage, but very minor compared to what could have been and what #32,34 and 36 have sustained. We have a couple of weeks of repairs, and clean-up on our hands but hopefully with the help of our insurance we will see through it.

Please check out our crowdfunding page to help our neighbours who were left with nothing after this devastating fire. Any help is greatly appreciated. https://www.gofundme.com/fire-relief-for-our-neighbours

Also, we have received offers from several studios in the GTA offering their space/equipment to us in the interim. These offers mean so much - it is nice to know we have support from fellow studios. Thank you for these (you know who you are!) 

We also apologize for any tardy responses to phone-calls, emails, and messages at this time. Thank you ****

Making music shouldn't be intimidating or difficult.
Here you'll find affordable rates, professional equipment and staff, and most of all a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere.

Grant Avenue Studio is a recording/mixing studio that also provides mastering/editing/tape transfer services.
Aside from a knowledgeable and friendly staff, Grant Avenue Studio boasts a large selection of equipment and instruments
at NO extra cost.

Since 1976, Grant Avenue Studio has survived the many changes and challenges of the music industry. It began as a convergence of ideas between Bob Doidge and the Lanois brothers in the 1970's,
and over time has developed an undeniable character of it's own.

Situated in a converted early 1900's Edwardian house in Hamilton Ontario, Grant Avenue Studio retains the warm atmosphere implied by the architecture. Simple, quaint and anonymous from the outside,
this very location has made an impressive impact on Canadian recording history.

In 2016 Grant Avenue Studio celebrated it’s fortieth year in operation! During that time we reflected on the influence our studio has had on music around the world. The very fact that legends in music have trusted us with recording their projects makes looking back at forty years an amazing experience for us. We can list our who’s who of music like Gordon Lightfoot, Bruce Cockburn, Ian Thomas, U2, Johnny Cash and on and on, but the list also includes countless artists and producers who have done great things in this musical world - People who have worked here and went on to accomplish such huge things yet their names are not known to the general public. Listing the artists, producers and hit songs that were created within these walls is an endless task.

    We now look forward to the next forty years and it is that very thought that brought about our renovation in 2015. Having a studio with that experience and dedication is a very important part of the culture of Hamilton and Canada. We are here today to make the music of the great artists that we work with on a daily basis. We will be here tomorrow for the artists who will make up the fabric of our Heritage in the years to come.
