New studios at Abbey Road

Abbey Road - smThe legendary London recording studio Abbey Road (you know, the one made famous by the Beatles) is moving with the times, adding two new studios, a new mixing stage and a new involvement with music-tech startups. For this story for Variety‘s “U.K. Creative Focus” issue, I interviewed Abbey Road managing director Isabel Garvey, Universal Music UK CEO David Joseph and San Diego-based “smart headphone” maker Jason Riggs of OSSIC, one of the earliest benefactors of the forward-thinking Abbey Road Red program. Abbey Road’s new pop/rock studios are called The Gatehouse and The Front Room, and we suspect they will soon be as busy as the legendary Studios One and Two.
