HOUSED IN WHAT WAS ONCE ST. JOHN'S CHURCH BUILT IN 1896, THE CAPACIOUS ROOM IS NOW AN ACOUSTICALLY radiant RECORDING STUDIO. 

Originally opened in 1986, the studio takes full advantage of the large wooden structure, providing an ambient and accommodating space for bands, orchestras, and string and horn sections. And it's exactly 100 miles from New York City, so everything you could possibly need is just a short trip away.

 
 
 

Why record at dreamland?

Dreamland is for artists who take the time to nurture their craft. We have found that musicians are able to get more done in less time here at Dreamland than at other studios, because of the onsite lodging and our focused yet relaxed atmosphere. The only distractions are the eagle’s nest, fire pit, and upstate mountain breeze.

testimonials

 

“Still one of my all time favorite rooms.”

“I even tell people to this day- I've worked in rooms all over the world in the best studio cities. I live in Nashville with arguably the best studios available. Dreamland is still, hands down, the best place to creatively make music. From the space, the gear, and the instruments. Not to mention the vibe. It still goes unmatched to this day. I wish it came to Nashville with me.”  –Dave Clauss (Shakira, Keith Urban, Quincy Jones, Rascal Flatts, Gwen Stefani)

“There’s nothing better for focus and camaraderie than spending 2 weeks in the woods.”

We grilled every night and hung out on the porch and listened to the coyotes talk to each other… Where else can you open the back doors and throw a guitarist playing acoustic guitar out there to do an overdub and feature crickets chirping in stereo? Fuck yeah, Dreamland Recorders.” –John Agnello (Aerosmith, Cyndi Lauper, John Mellencamp, The Kills, Dinosaur Jr., The Breeders)

“The space itself inspires music making: open, spiritual, warmly reverberant.”

I was astonished at the breadth of instruments and amps available: if it isn't there, you don't need it. The recording console is fully capable and I really like the layout with the full visibility of the recording space from the control room. Overall, a very powerful combination!”  –Steve Albers
