Priceless sounds

Best Local Recording Studio
Tempermill Studio

The Tempermill is hands down the best-known studio in the Detroit metropolitan area, consistently winning Best Of awards left and right, so you gotta wonder if they’re starting to run out of room on their walls for all those plaques. It’s downright impressive to see the list of big-name local artists who have recorded here: Stewart Francke, ICP, Jill Jack, Forge, 19 Wheels, the Articles, Factory 81 and Esham, to name just a sampling. You wouldn’t know it from the outside of this nondescript building in Ferndale, but the Tempermill offers all the amenities of a big-city studio: top-of-the-line equipment, expert engineers, warm, hardwood floors, big control room and on and on.

This is the place where you can be guaranteed a first-class recording of all your musical gems. And to an artist, that sort of guarantee is priceless indeed.
