The Studio

The studio vibe is responsible for recording great tracks, even more so than the microphone that is used. The vibe inspires and enhances an artist’s writing and performance and gives the music its power. If you are working in other studios but feel something is missing, or if you have a home studio and need fresh inspiration, come to Stray Records for a personal tour and experience the vibe.

Studio Amenities

Stray Records is housed in an old cabin on the Augusta Plantation just 30 minutes from Baton Rouge, La. While recording with us, you may want to stay over in a Bed and Breakfast style atmosphere. Located on a dead-end road and surrounded by thousands of acres of sugar cane, the hustle and bustle of town is only 30 miles away, but feels like forever. Enjoy gourmet dining from our menu tailored specifically for you. Relax or write in the Saloon, cozy up to a fire and let the music play. Hope you like dogs, we have 7 strays thanks to the dead-end road. They are all members of our family and happen to be excellent studio employees.
