John McBride’s Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN is easily one of the most amazing places that you will come across in this world of music, recording and producing. During our visit to Summer NAMM, Mark Rubel one of the teachers at the Blackbird Academy invited the Produce Like a Pro Team over for an interview and private tour of the facility. We had an amazing time, as I’m sure you can imagine.
Mark shared with us his story about the conversation that he and John had when he decided to come and teach at Blackbird and start the academy. He also shared details about what the curriculum at blackbird is like and what he aims to teach the students during their time at the academy.
We then toured this amazing facility, got to see all but one of the eight studios on the grounds, went entirely through their infamous microphone locker and got to browse through many shelves of outboard gear that is a part of Blackbird Audio Rentals.
We had a marvellous time at Blackbird as there was so much to see and talk about. If you ever visit Nashville and are given the chance to see this studio, you should absolutely take it! Please watch the video, and leave a bunch of comments and questions. I hope you enjoy it!
Thanks again for watching the video! I hope that you enjoyed getting an inside look at the incredible Blackbird Studio in Nashville, TN.
Have a marvellous time recording and mixing,
