OUR STORY

THIS OLD SALVATION ARMY HALL WAS BUILT IN 1910. Planning was in place for the old building to make way for a block of flats. We saw the potential of this beautiful old building and the space within it, so to save it we bought it at auction. Whilst renovating the interior of the old building, a new extension and subterranean rooms were built. This has achieved a modern finish that is in keeping with the original hall. The exterior of the building has remained the same in its classic style, as a nod to its creator Ernest Clevett.

WE PUT AN EXPERT TEAM TOGETHER TO ENSURE EVERY ELEMENT OF THE STUDIO WAS THOUGHT ABOUT IN DEPTH BY A SPECIALIST IN THEIR FIELD. 

The following names are those who contributed to the creation of Salvation:  

 

  • JOHN FLYNN *Chief Acoustician and Architect* is one of the world’s most important acousticians – He was given a blank canvas and chequebook to build a world-class modern recording and writing facility. His company, ADG, has worked on hundreds of projects over the last fifty years - most notably, Abbey Road control rooms 1 & 2, Olympic Studios Complex, SARM Music Village and Studios, and even Lucasfilm Ltd / Skywalker Sound in San Francisco. 

  • MIKE GARDNER *Audio Engineer* is the founder of the revered Eden Studios, which has hosted legendary acts such as Oasis, The Stereophonics, and Joe Jackson. 

  • PAUL KIRKIN *Audio Engineer and Technician* has worked on projects for BMG Music, and Universal Music Group. He has also been involved in the maintenance of Air Edel Studios since 1989.
