A new recording studio recently opened in a Gastonia shopping center

So you want to be in the music industry? Many people have this dream. But once you’ve achieved the goal, what do you do next? Understand that this step can be difficult. Not to mention, there are plenty of people out there who will gladly take your money to “help out” but those results you’ll probably never see. But good news in North Carolina, there is a new local resource aimed at helping budding local artists. The new recording studio opened in Gastonia at Eastridge Mall in October. Legacy Music aims to provide local artists with access to a recording studio, photography and other multimedia services to help them succeed in the industry. You can find Legacy Music on the second floor of the mall near Belk.

Nathaniel Jones is the founder of the company which includes several vocal recording booths, rehearsal space, podcasting facilities, space to hold workshops and educational events, and a photography studio. Jones told WRAL “We want to showcase more artists in the Carolinas and bring a family place where artists can collaborate.”

Space usage fees are approximately $60 to $100 per hour. The exact fees vary depending on the services requested and most media services require a minimum of two hours.

“We want to give people more reasons to come to the mall than just to shop,” Jones told WRAL. He worked in Atlanta in various aspects of the music industry while keeping his “day job” in property management. It was this job that brought Jones and his family to Gastonia – an opportunity to run Eastridge Mall. The family moved here in 2007. After his son expressed an interest in music, Jones set out to find a studio. And long story short, the idea of ​​Legacy Studios was born.

Construction of the recording studio in Gastonia began 11 months ago. Jones hopes it will serve as a safe, family-friendly environment for artists young and old.
