SARM Studios are located just off the Portobello
Road in London's very trendy and vibrant Notting Hill Gate. The studios, owned by
Trevor Horn and Jill Sinclair, are regarded as one of the top studio
facilities in the UK. Managed by Lola Weidner, the studio has one of the
best maintenance departments in town and the food cooked by Marco is excellent!
Prior to Trevor Horn's involvement, the studios
used to be known as 'Basing Street Studios' and before then it was a
church. Many people still specu late that the words psalm and SARM are

We will be posting a client list, more
pictures and video in the near future, in the meantime, for

expense of the recording space which has also been increased by knocking
in to a former ZTT record company office.
Featuring one of London's largest SSL
J Series consoles and a full Quested 5.1 monitor system, the facility
also boasts a wonderful circular staircase at the rear of the control
room rising up to what can only be described as an awesome relaxation
area with screened roof terrace to protect the artist from gawpers.
In a nut-shell, it's very private and very, very nice.
The installation work was overseen by
Bill Ward, the studio's technical manager who has recently left to start
a new studio installations venture. Studio design is by Sam
Toyashima and John Flynn of ADG.
The room should be high up on the list
of any mega star visiting town and it's worth saving up if you're not a
