Women’s Audio Mission Moves Into New Studio

June 15th, 2015 | Posted in News, newsletter

Women’s Audio Mission (WAM), a nonprofit dedicated to the advancement of women in music production and the recording arts, moved into a new recording studio, the former SF Soundworks Studio, earlier this year and has since attracted major donations from audio manufacturers Audient, Avid, Meyer Sound, Belden, Blue, Line 6, AKG, Ableton, and XQP.

SF Soundworks Studio was home to many high-profile recording projects with artists such as Alanis Morissette, R.E.M., Timbaland, and Radiohead. The new recording studio is triple the size of WAM’s previous facility, and will allow the nonprofit to serve over 300 additional women and girls a year (1,200 women and girls total) with free and low-cost recording arts training. The studio has recently been covered in a feature on NBC News and has attracted the support of San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee, who spoke at the ribbon cutting for the studio last fall. More »
