The Shire Soundworks on SoundBetter

We are a purpose built, intimate studio nestled in the serene and inspirational setting of the Glory Hills of Alberta. Our goal is to nurture your creativity and let your unique sound emerge. From concept to completion, jingles to jams or singles to solos, let us help you ignite your musical inspiration.

The Shire Sound Works is not just a studio - it is an entire experience. The Shire is a quiet reprieve from the hustle and bustle of life's noise. Truly a place to be creatively inspired and conducive to capturing your musical thoughts and ideas, The Shire offers a full range of services to provide for your next demo, EP, or complete musical odyssey. With a warm, genuine and professional atmosphere coupled with a modern, eclectic collection of gear and instruments, we are excited about working with you and polishing your sound into a sonic sheen!

Do you need a vocalist, custom drum programming, bass, a string bed, some orchestral work or a session drummer? We also specialize in acoustic guitar from strumming to artistic and complex finger picking. Maybe you're looking for some electric guitar for background ambient support, or rhythm guitar - funky, phat, edgy, folksy, rocky, country, or otherwise, or perhaps some melodious and intricate lead work? You decide - we would love to help you.

Our standard rate for most services is typically $70 hourly (2 hour minimum) or $65 per hour when booking 8 hour blocks. Package rates apply when booking your Demo, EP or Full Album project.

Composition, arrangement and production rates are different, just let us know your need.
