If These Halls Could Talk: A Historical Tour Through San Francisco Recording Studios

Author Heather Johnson’s book takes an in-depth look at San Francisco's colorful and diverse music and recording history. From jazz and blues, to rock, pop, punk, rap, and hip hop, Johnson uncovers rich sonic history as conveyed through the eyes and ears of some of the Bay Area’s most notable producers, engineers, studio owners, and recording artists. In the book, Johnson takes readers on a guided tour through some of San Francisco's top recording studios, and goes behind the scenes of some of popular music's hottest albums from Jefferson Airplane and the Grateful Dead to Sly Stone, En Vogue, Journey, Third Eye Blind, and many more.

A number of essential contributors to San Francisco’s vibrant sonic history will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Heather Johnson.
