Welcome to Vertical Rooms

When is a studio not a studio? When it’s the award-winning Vertical Rooms.

At VR we continuously re-assess what it means to be a music studio, within the ever-changing landscape of the music industry. It’s this philosophy that’s led us to becoming a collective of creatives that seeks to connect as well as create.

VR was established by music industry legend, published Sound on Sound author and award winning music producer Pete Brazier, with the goal of providing a creative space to rival the common, stuffy and impersonal music studios of the world.

It facilitates high quality, tailored recordings with real character, and we seek to achieve these for all our clients, no matter how big or small the project using our true analogue and digital music studios. We understand each job is unique and consult carefully and attentively to provide a product of real substance and artistry and understand this is more than just music. But as well as offering first class recording facilities, we provide a support network to help you push your career.

Book into Vertical Rooms and you’ll gain access to our team of creative minds, with a wealth of knowledge and information, based on your needs. We can advise on the ins and outs of the music industry, the graphic and visual aspects of the music, and even offer technical support for your Mac. And that’s just the start.
