Music Scene in
Los Angeles, California is the second largest city in America, with a city population of nearly 4 million people, and anchoring a sprawling metro area of nearly 18 million. Besides being the undisputed heart of the film industry, Los Angeles is also one of the world’s largest hubs of the music and recording industry.
Not limited to one particular style, Los Angeles has been on the cusp of nearly every emerging popular genre, from classic rock to thrash metal, punk rock, glam rock, alternative, EDM, and hip-hop, the list of noteworthy bands and artists coming out of Los Angeles is nearly endless. Serj Tankian, lead singer of System of a Down is from LA, as is Zac de la Rocha and Rage Against The Machine, Tool, and A Perfect Circle. Classic metal heavyweights like Motley Crue and Metallica call L.A. home as does The Eagles and Stevie Nicks.
EDM heavyweights are sure to play our many music festivals while natives Borgeous, Krystina Sky, AC Slater, and 3Teeth keep it real. In hip-hop, Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Dr. Dre, Jay Rock, Cypress Hill, YG, Ice Cube, Ice-T, N.W.A. Warren G, and the late Nipsey Hussle all hail from Los Angeles.
Basically, all of the major music labels have offices here, and hundreds of state-of-the-art recording studios accommodate the needs of the thousands of local acts, as well as those of national and international recording stars who make L.A. their destination. With such a vast array of musicians and genres, Los Angeles recording studios work hard to differentiate themselves and to expertly cater to and anticipate their clients needs and wants.
