The Island of Sound Inc was discovered by Captain Mason back in 2007. He settled and was chieftain of the island for many years. His founding principles of no hidden charges for island visitors and providing the cleanest and best equipped dwellings possible for his tribe were passed on to his successor, island resident Luke.
Our Ethos has always been one of a supportive and safe environment for our musicians. Our goal is, and always will be, to give musicians everything they need to be able to fast track their success in the music industry. Great sounding studios, well maintained gear, a huge variety of music stock and the hire equipment are essential, but peripheral to our overarching goal of providing an environment that stimulates joy and success.
The Tribe on the island was sceptical at first, having been to many similar islands and not finding the right resources for them to flourish. Captain Mason toiled in his setting up of the encampment. Hammocks became huts and huts became dwellings, as more and more luxuries were procured and facilities built, The Tribe slowly and surely grew.
Our Tribe is an amazing group of musicians. Our musicians range from traditional cover bands through to solo artists writing original music. Heavy metal moshers to acoustic duos. Solo drummers through to nine member jazz bands. All of the aforementioned add to our rich tapestry and our history of being part of the North East’s thriving music scene. The best bit is that there’s always room for more, and to top it off - you’re invited.
After the saddening departure of Captain Mason, the emerging leader: Chieftain Luke, steered The Tribe to further prosperity. Dwellings were beautified and upgraded further. A steady food supply was ensured by the construction of The Snack Shack. The Trading Post was built and became a bastion of musical commerce for all tribe members. INC cables was conceived and provided necessary exports for The Tribe to begin thinking about their long term future.
As the tribe and their chieftains celebrated and sang around the fire at sundown each day, they wondered what the future held for them.
The Pipe Dream is to be around forever so that we might continue serving Our Tribe and contributing to the local music scene. We wish to continue pushing the boundaries and breaking the stereotypes of what to expect from a humble music studio. We aim to be bold, innovative and industry leading in everything that we do.
We hope that we’ll always be here to help you SOUND INCredible.
