About Us

Set in over an acre of private grounds, Crescent Records is a high-definition recording studio based in
“The Ancient County” of Wiltshire, close to the world-famous sites of Stonehenge, Silbury Hill and Avebury. 


With over 2,000 sq ft of space, the studio features a stunning large live room with a 7m high vaulted ceiling, a beautiful and acoustically rich drum booth, a smaller vocal booth and a large control room.

The studio was designed by “The Richings Brothers”, James (EMMY award-winning innovator) & Rob (acclaimed singer-songwriter), along with  Damon “The Grandmaster” Sawyer, a widely acclaimed  drummer, producer and engineer with 30 years of experience.

We are known for our "BIG" but natural sound and work with clients to capture the essence of a performance. We cater for all music genres, but particularly specialise in jazz, blues and singer/songwriter.


The Studio

Take a look around our large Live Room with our Yamaha CFX Concert Grand, Hammond A100, our expanding drum library and all the other kit we have on offer.
