South by Sea Studios


About

South x Sea Studio A was imagined as a unique collaborative space where writers, musicians, and producers could create beyond the boundaries of traditional Nashville studios. Built and run by producer Brandon Metcalf and engineer Jeremiah Sinopoli, the studio features nearly 4,000 sq. ft of open collaborative space. The control room is one of the largest in the United States, at just under 2,000 sq. ft .  4 Isolation Booths with extra large glass are unconventionally located at the edges of the control room, so the musicians with instruments that demand high isolation can still feel like they're right there with the rest of the band. Additionally, the roughly 1,500 sq. ft live room combines an industrial feel with acoustics that facilitate huge, punchy drums tones.
