Located at 9-11 Northern Road, Heidelberg West, Empire Music Studios/Studio 52 is Melbourne’s brand new premier studio facility with a 35 year history. Australian Musician’s Greg Phillips sat down with studio owner Paul Higgins to discuss the new studio, as well as Kool Skools, the fabulous school recording project which has long been associated with Studio 52.

The old Studio 52 in Collingwood building has been demolished to make room for more apartments, so the owners have decided to start again but go bigger and better than ever before! All new Studios! The new studios complex has three major recording studios, production suites and photography studio along with a great lounge/events area, brand new kitchen and bathrooms. Studio 1 is available for small bands and vocal work like Pop, Hip-Hop and RnB. It’s also great for production, mixing and mastering jobs. Studio 2 is bigger and is perfect for bands up to 22 piece (*based on the Covid 4sqm rule). Great for Jazz, Rock and has a beautiful Yamaha C7 Grand Piano which many say is the best piano in Melbourne. Studio 3 is under final stages of completion and will be available for orchestra, choir, large ensembles or anyone you just wants the best large space with all the trimmings.

The production suites and photography studio along with about 80sqm of office space are all available for permanent and semi-permanent hire. They’re open to discussions with professionals who wish to partner with the studio in these spaces or who wish to work autonomously with their own music-related business but have easy access to recording studios and to be part of a large creative hub and cool shared working environment.
