Ocean Way Nashville
With the largest discrete Neve console on the planet and the amenities of a 5-star hotel, Ocean Way Nashville became an immediate success, recalls Sides. As much as I loved the studios, and as proud as I was of the design, I rarely had a chance to work there because I was too busy with my studio operations and album projects in LA. In 2003, when the possibility arose of Belmont University purchasing the studios, it extended Belmonts campus into the heart of Music Row and provided Belmont with three exceptional music studios. The arrangement I worked out left our management team intact and allowed the studio to continue commercial operation as Nashvilles premier studio, while providing internships and an incredible learning environment during the studios off time.
