Converse Rubber Tracks Austin | 12th Street Sound

We’re back in Austin for our fifth straight year of giving local artists free professional studio time. This year the sessions are taking place in the world-class rooms at 12th Street Sound.

Built in the shell of an old church, 12th Street Sound is a high-end recording studio with inspiring features both inside and out. The church’s new interior features a spacious live room, multiple isolation booths, and a control room designed for max comfort and acoustic accuracy.

The studio is equipped with a 64-input SSL 9000J console and loaded with classic, time-tested outboard gear. Perfect for any artist looking to take their sound to the next level.

For these sessions, we’re bringing in one of Austin’s finest: Spoon frontman Britt Daniel will choose one artist to join in the studio for a two-day recording session. All signups will automatically be considered for sessions with Britt. 

Recording Dates: March 13 – March 19.
