Abbey Road and Studio’s 301 have teamed up, and will set up the new studio at Studio 301’s current Alexandria studio. With both Abbey Road and Studio’s 301 both founded by British record label EMI, it was Abbey Road’s Australian partner Gianni Michelini and CEO Paul Ledingham who initiated the idea.
The set up of a Sydney studio follows on from the opening of Australia’s first Abbey Road Institute in Melbourne over the weekend. They new studios will continue to work with and support Australian recording artists, but will now also offer a full time Music Production and Sound Engineering program that will run over the course of 46 weeks. CEO Paul Ledingham said in a statement about the upcoming project “Our team continues to be 100% committed to seeing 301 evolve to meet the needs of the 21st-century music industry. We’ll continue to service our existing clients and pay homage to the incredible legacy that is Studios 301.” The new Sydney studio is expected to open in July 2016.
