Studio 52 has been part of the Melbourne Recording Studio scene for 30 years and has been involved in many facets of the music business, often instigating projects to inspire people to record or to make it easier for young people to record and release their first songs. The first such project was the 52 Pickup Series back in the late 80’s. Then came the Nu-Music Series which released almost 20 compilation albums of unsigned acts including Metal compilations and the highly successful Blues albums Real Australian Blues Vol1-4. After that came the Fear of the Unknown indy projects and more recently the brilliant and super successful Kool Skools Project which single handedly made professional music recording available to secondary level students and boasts having now released over 700 albums of original tracks by students aged general 14-18. The project has recorded original music in Victoria, NSW, SA, TAS and QLD.
Over the past 30 years Studio 52 has worked with names big and small, the famous and the independent and many acts that deserved more attention than maybe they got, the music scene being the animal that it is.
