Singer/songwriter Joan Osborne. Jazz bandleader Lionel Hampton. Folk singer Mary Travers (Peter, Paul & Mary). Singer Mia Zapata (late lead vocalist of punk band The Gits). Singier Nichole Scherzinger (Pussycat Dolls, TV show 'The X-Factor'). All of these artists have one thing in common: they came from Louisville, KY.

While Louisville is perhaps better known for the Kentucky Derby than the music industry, this city is home to a thriving music scene, especially its indie-rock scene, which has produced acts like My Morning Jacket, Love Jones and others. The indie scene is celebrated in Louisville each summer with the three-day Forecastle Festival. Louisville is also the site of the annual Abbey Road on the River, the world's largest celebration of the music of the Beatles.

The professional audio engineers and music producers featured on this page also got their start in Louisville, attending the Recording Connection Audio Institute. Each of these top-shelf individuals was trained one-on-one in world class recording studios by some of the best music industry pros in Louisville, Kentucky.
