The Beehouse Recording Studio at Llanfyllin has been providing the following services since 1999
The Beehouse records all types of music, but is intensively involved in the recording of modern pop, electronic dance, techno, ballad, dubstep, reggae, and with some forays into folk, easy listening, country and neo-classical genres. Projects which require a knowledge of a number of genres are also welcome. Our recording skills are particularly sought after due our strengths in dance production and vocal recording in this field.

Your music will be recorded and produced by either Philip or Jane, (sometimes both) on most occasions although we do have reliable support team of other experienced engineers who are also occasionally called on.
Phil has been professionally involved in recording and production since the late seventies, and still regularly works with a wide range of experienced and unknown artists of many different genres. His encyclopaedic knowledge of the world of sound production and his ability to put the artist rapidly at ease, and to extract the best possible recording result from any given situation, combined with a hugely creative approach to production and post-production mean that he is much sought after as a first choice for innovative or complex projects.
Jane has a background in classical piano, and a strong focus on harmony, structure and production dynamics, often contributing to both the initial development and the final stages of a track. She has a teaching background and is experienced at working with a wide variety of ages. Jane can move new materials very quickly from idea form into a concrete structure. As a songwriter, producer and lyricist, she can bring to a project the overview necessary prior to release.
The Studio is located off the A490 in the stunning countryside of the Shropshire Powys Borderland. Easily accessible from the Midlands, for example Shropshire, Cheshire, Birmingham, Telford, Wolverhampton and so forth, it is both in a lovely and tranquil part of the world, and near enough a small town to be convenient for all your daily requirements.
