London Bridge Studio is a Seattle recording studio that has hosted and recorded many influential artists, producers and engineers since 1985. Founded by brothers Rick Parashar and Raj Parashar as a private studio space, the studio surged to fame with the release of a number of hit grunge albums in the late 1980s, including Soundgarden's Louder Than Love (1989) and Alice in Chains' Facelift (1990).

History

Founded by brothers Rick Parashar and Raj Parashar as a private studio space in 1985. The space was designed by notable studio designer Geoff Turner (Little Mountain Studios, Pinewood Studios) and features 5,000 square feet (460 m2) of tall ceilings, hardwood floors, brick walls and live acoustics.[1] Layout of the studio includes live rooms, a control room, overdub suites, and a lounge with full kitchen.

Seattle's surge to musical prominence in the late 80's and 90's stemmed in large part from albums recorded at London Bridge Studio. Influential bands of that era such as Eternal Daze, Mother Love Bone, Temple of the Dog and Alice in Chains all recorded classic Seattle records here. Soundgarden's Louder Than Love (1989), Alice In Chains's Dirt (1992) and Pearl Jam's Ten (1991), all brought the studio national attention. Throughout the next ten years bands such as Blind Melon, Nickelback, Candlebox, Unwritten Law, Default, and 3 Doors Down all recorded at London Bridge.

In September 2005 Geoff Ott and Jonathan Plum purchased London Bridge from Rick and Raj Parashar[2]and have since opened the studio up to the local and national music community for recording.[3] In 2013, Producer Eric Lilavois became the third partner and co-owner of London Bridge.

In addition to traditional bands and recording artists, London Bridge Studio has also branched out into video game and television audio.[4]
