THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC HAPPENS

BUILT BY MUSICIANS FOR MUSICIANS

Welcome to Clearwave Recording Studio! located in the heart of Decatur, Alabama - a town as gritty as it is charming. Here, we are dedicated to creating music for the future, and not dwelling on the music of the past. This is a REAL WORLD recording studio built by musicians, for today's musicians - a place where the creative spark can ignite and be captured for eternity on analog tape.

The studio itself is a haven for musical experimentation, with a main studio floor, drum booth, vocal booth, and two small booths for guitar amps. The control room is a masterpiece of design, with a layout inspired by the best mastering studios in the business. Every room in the studio has excellent line of sight and personal cue mixes, ensuring that the music flows seamlessly from the mind to the recording.

When the recording is done for the day, head on out into the wilds of Decatur.
There are barbecue joints aplenty, and bars where you can wet your whistle and get inspired for the next round of recording. And when the night gets too rowdy, there's a cozy airbnb band house nearby to crash in and recharge for the next day. Clearwave Recording Studio - Be yourself and find your voice!
