Southport’s Premier Walk in Recording “Sun Studio” goes from strength to strength!

Following in the footsteps of the famous Sun Studio, Memphis, Tennessee, the birthplace of many Rock and Roll greats who recorded there back in the 50’s such as Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins and Johnny Cash.

The man behind the idea is Southport’s own answer to Elvis Presley, tribute singer Louis Rockafella. It was twelve years ago when Louis first had the idea of opening a Sun Studio in UK, following a visit to Sun Studio, Memphis back in 2000. Louis walked into the famous studio in Beale Street and recorded a CD, and had a fabulous experience. It was only when Louis returned home he realised that to make a recording here in UK, can be very time consuming as well as very expensive.

Louis questioned “Why was there not such an approachable, easy, inexpensive facility like Sun Studios here in England?”

Louis was determined to one day open such a facility here, but due to his busy touring schedule over the years, with his shows including the 2005 “Spirit of Elvis” theatre show with Elvis’ own backing singers, “The Sweet Inspirations”, his idea for a studio was put to one side.

It is only now 2012, the 35th Anniversary year of Elvis passing, that Louis has found time to dedicate to his long term ambition of opening up a Sun Recording Studio, here in Southport.

Sun Recording Studio Southport is a walk in Studio, just like Memphis; a facility for providing professional recordings to clients whether they are established singers, budding amateurs, or karaoke singers alike.
