Located in northeast Georgia, the town of Athens is home to about 100,000 people. Despite its relatively small size, this town has a very active and influential music scene (largely related to the presence of the University of Georgia campus), and has been a major player in the evolution of New Wave, alternative and indie rock in America during the past few decades. R.E.M., The B-52s, Matthew Sweet, Vic Chestnutt, Drive-By Truckers and Widespread Panic are just a few of the notable bands and artists that have come from this area. Country, bluegrass and even hip-hop also have a significant presence in Athens.
Much of the live music activity in Athens centers in its downtown area in venues such as the famous 40 Watt Club and the Georgia Theatre. Several annual festivals also celebrate the musical culture of the area, including Athfest, Athens Popfest and the North Georgia Folk Festival.
A number of recording studios and several independent record labels are located in and around Athens to accommodate the continuing needs of this vibrant music community. If you are considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, you’ll find plenty to keep you busy in Athens–and the RECORDING CONNECTION can get you close to the action in ways other recording schools can’t match.
