Ever hear of Juice Newton? The Neptunes? Missy Elliott? Ella Fitzgerald? Pearl Bailey? Bruce Hornsby?

What do these artists share in common? They all got their start in and around Virginia Beach, Virginia.

While Virginia Beach itself is home to nearly half a million people, it is also part of the much larger Hampton Roads region of Virginia, which is home to over 1.6 million. As such, it is also part of a vibrant, active and diverse music scene, fueled in part by area tourism, in part by the presence of several colleges, and in part by the culture itself. Local and touring musicians from a variety of genres can be found playing in live music venues all over the area, as well as recording their projects in area recording studios.

The individuals you see on this page are all professional music producers and/or audio engineers who received a state-of-the-art education in real Virginia Beach recording studios as students of the Recording Connection Audio Institute in Virginia Beach, VA. Each one of them has been personally trained and mentored by some of the best audio professionals in the music industry today.
