Studio at the Palms is the first state-of-the-art studio ever built in Las Vegas.
Studio at the Palms is the first state-of-the-art studio ever built in Las Vegas. The facility opened in December 2005 inside the Palms Casino Resort. Designed by Francis Manzella, a top name in architectural and acoustic design, every aspect of Studio at the Palms was designed to draw the high-end recording industry to the city from its acoustical design and equipment to the experience of the staff. The studio has successfully competed with the top studios in the country, specifically drawing artists that would have normally recorded in one of the music centers – Los Angeles, New York, Atlanta, Miami or Nashville. The studio is the recipient of the prestigious international 2006 Tech Award for Studio Design, an award bestowed on just one studio annually.
Being within Palms Casino Resort allows the studio to provide services unlike any other recording facility in the world. Conceptually, it is similar to having a private concierge – every detail from budgeting, equipment needs, engineering services and staff is taken care of and since its housed inside the top resort in Vegas, additional amenities such as hotel rooms, restaurant and club reservations, and other entertainment options are within reach – it’s truly a “one-stop shop” for artists.
“Outside of the incredible design and passionate staff, our city operates on the same schedule as most artists – 24/7. When they wrap recording at 4 a.m. they can leave, have a great meal and still find life in the city – it’s a piece of what makes the studio so successful and in-demand,” said Director of Studio at the Palms Zoe Thrall.
The Studio at the Palms is proud to have many artists return to record second or third albums after their experience, and one artist on the impressive roster has recorded all four of his records at the amazing studio. The facility has been involved in the making of records that have sold in excess of 20 million copies while credited on 10 Platinum records, seven Gold records and 17 No. 1 records. Many GRAMMY awards have been awarded to songs and albums worked on at Studio at the Palms including Usher’s Raymond v Raymond (Best Contemporary R&B Album 2010); Maroon 5’s “Makes Me Wonder” (Best Pop Performance By a Duo or a Group w/Vocals 2007); and Eminem’s Relapse (Best Rap Album 2009). GRAMMY nominated pieces of work by Katy Perry, Alice in Chains, Jamie Foxx and The Killers were also recorded at Studio at the Palms.
Artists of all genres have called Studio at the Palms home during their careers including Lady Gaga, Imagine Dragons, Britney Spears, Michael Jackson, Tony Bennett, Rihanna, Jay-Z, Celine Dion, Mariah Carey, Journey, Beyonce and Mary J. Blige, among many others.
