TT10 - The Village

The original Village Recorders that Geordie Hormel built in 1968 was on the brink of being demolished in 1995, when new CEO Jeff Greenberg recruited Grammy winning engineer Al Schmitt to consult on a room-by-room renovation. Two years later, freshly rewired and reequipped, The Village was once again a state of the art studio drawing a new generation of talent, like John Mayer and the Raconteurs to the rooms where Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan recorded.

The six studios include the largest collection of Neve analog consoles in the US and an impressive array of modern and vintage mics, amps and outboard gear. Built in a 1920s era former Masonic Temple, Village retains much of the original architecture and has an auditorium and ballroom, in addition to the studios and artist lounges.
