The House of Blues Studios, Encino is a world class facility set in the lush hills of Encino, California, within the quiet boundaries of a private gated complex. The studio features a 36 channel, 72 input custom, all discrete, NEVE console with a 16 channel API sidecar and boasts an amazing selection of both vintage and modern. Our efficient but unobtrusive staff is ready to aid in productivity and a "down home" working environment.
Those familiar with the House of Blues restaurants and clubs will immediatly be welcomed by the same decor, an eclectic mix of styles drawn from earthy Southern Blues and Far East spirituality. Our hilltop location provides a serene, laid back environment, something almost impossible to find in the hustle and bustle of the Los Angeles metropolitan area. The House of Blues Studios offers a uniquely calm and agreeable isolation with the convenience of Ventura Blvd. only minutes away.
