Pinna Productions is set in the Fortress music complex at the heart of Shoreditch, London. Being only a few minutes walk from Old Street tube station and the trendy bars, clubs and music venues of Hoxton, its the perfect place to feel inspired to make music.
It was set up in 2005 by Producer/Engineers Kev and Sonny (pictured above) in order to create a place where they could work with the bands whose music they really loved. It's a place where new music is made and where you can come and make professional quality records with experienced engineers working in the industry, but without having to watch the clock, or your wallet. PINNA has grown from strength to strength and has been involved in a great number of interesting and successful projects, building on the way the reputation as a professional and homely studio.
