The cities of Santa Barbara, Santa Maria and San Luis Obispo are located along California’s south-central coastline, on a 100-mile stretch of Highway 101. Although this area is shadowed by the huge music scene of L.A. a short drive south, the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo area still has a solid musical presence, with plenty of live venues and recording studios to service the needs of the area. This area has also been home to a number of notable bands and artists, not the least of which are Jon Anderson (lead singer of Yes), Peter Buck (guitarist for R.E.M.), indie rock band Watashi Wa, rock band Toad the Wet Sprocket, and pop superstar Katy Perry, just to name a few. If you’re considering a career in audio as a recording engineer, live audio engineer or music producer, the Santa Barbara-Santa Maria-San Luis Obispo area has plenty of learning opportunities, and is close enough to the Los Angeles area that it can provide a quieter alternative to living there.
