Recording & mixing studio

Amazing sound,
your success

Attention to the artist’s vision and the ability to extract the true character of the artist, combined with an ear for an international sound, has been the formula behind the successful signing of many artists recorded by Aisle 6.

Aisle 6 has recorded and mixed bands, duos, soloists and singer/songwriters from its Salisbury location since 1998, constantly refining the facilities to produce a truly international sound. This is evident through clients successfully transitioning from Australia to the international stage as well as international artists utilising Aisle 6 services.

Aisle 6 has received recognised success, from “Best Engineer” for a Jazz recording (Sunnie Awards) to “Single of the Year” for a rock recording (Los Angeles Music Awards).

Return clients are a testimony to the creativity and quality delivered by Aisle 6. Clients include:

The Amity Affliction (hardcore)
Alexandra Gunn (alt-country)
Matt O’Donnell (acoustic pop)
Sarah Collyer (jazz)
Fresco Kyoto (indie rock)
Paddy McHugh (alternative)

Producers/engineers available for your project include Scott Mullane, Cody McWaters, Nell Forster and Liam Cox.
