Blake LaGrange graduated in 2009 from Recording Connection under mentor Steve Weatherbee of Golden Track Studio, San Diego. “If you are already doing what you love and you go through the program using the resources at Recording Connection, you can succeed,” Blake said during a visit to Los Angeles Center Studios this week. Blake comes from a place of personal experience, as he currently owns and operates two of his own studios with a focus on EDM music.

Located on the western side of the state, the cities of Charleston and Huntington, West Virginia are located along a 50-mile stretch of Interstate-64. Charleston, the state capital, anchors a metro area of about 300,000 people, while Huntington is home to about 50,000. Although not a region many people associate with the music industry in general, both cities host active music scenes, with local and touring acts regularly playing blues, rock, country, hip-hop and other genres in popular venues throughout the area, such as The Empty Glass in Charleston and V-Club in Huntington. The Charleston-Huntington area has produced such notable musicians as country singer Kathy Mattea, contemporary Christian artist Michael W. Smith, and metal band Byzantine, among others.
To accommodate the ongoing needs of the music scene, a number of recording studios make their home in the Charleston-Huntington area. Whether your interest is in recording, producing, mixing or mastering, this area holds opportunity for you, and with the help of the RECORDING CONNECTION, one of these local studios can become your personal classroom.
