We’ll all float on…

The vibe and location of a recording studio can make or break the artists involved. It’s the final place to find inspiration and search for that sound that everyone will talk about. There are many iconic studios in London from Abbey Road to Miloco and a rather unique addition has been made to this list.

Ben Phillips found “Lightship95”, a ship built in 1939, for sale in 2006. He had a look round, snapped it up and transformed it into a floating recording studio at Trinity Buoy Wharf. It’s inspirational to see such creativity, and considering Pink Floyd spent a fair bit of time recording on the Astoria houseboat studio, the signals bode well for some serious music to emerge from its shores.
