Set in a beautiful daylit warehouse in the heart of Sefton Park, The Motor Museum is one of the most in demand recording studios in Liverpool.
Boasting a rich legacy spanning more than two decades, it has shaped the careers of some of the UK’s hottest artists including Oasis, The Arctic Monkeys, The 1975, Jake Bugg and Bring Me The Horizon.
Mediterranean architecture features three dramatic live spaces, a vintage Neve console, and an impressive selection of rare and vintage equipment.
Tropical foliage and natural daylight meet to deliver a vibrant backdrop that marks The Motor Museum as the north's most iconic recording studio.
Its also got the backline to match; vintage drums from Ludwig and Premier, a collection of iconic synths including original Roland TR-808 and Moog Minimoog, and a desirable selection of boutique guitar amps come together to make The Motor Museum a unique, inspiring and wonderfully creative recording studio.
