During the mixing stage, this is where a song comes to life!

JAN 7, 2022 Studio Update
I've been working on some really fun projects lately. I had the opportunity to record vocals with Hip Hop Producer Xzay on some of his new songs. He writes his own beats and sometimes he likes to come into the studio to record his vocals to get a nice polished sound that he can't get from his home studio.
I mixed another song for Spruce Miles. This song was really fun to work on. They featured Raychael Winters on vocals for this one and she's incredible! If you're not familiar with Spruce Miles, they're a duo that feature different vocalists on each song. This new single is called "Never Looking Back". I'm not sure when it will be released, but hopefully soon!
I recorded another single with Red Dirt band The Cattlehands and it's a fun tune! I also had the pleasure of working on a couple songs with Gospel R&B singer Jericha Palmer! She's awesome!

Hi, my name is Stephen Adwell. After graduating college in 2009 with a degree in Recording Arts, I started AMR Studio in 2010 in an incredibly small bedroom in a house my wife and I rented. Remember those days when you were a child building blanket forts? Well, that's exactly what I used to do to build makeshift isolation booths. I would hang the thickest comforters with nails all around, enclosing vocalists in a claustrophobic sweat lodge. Many breaks were needed to prevent panic attacks!
In 2012, my wife had a job transfer to Houston, TX, so we relocated. Shortly after arriving and settling in, I found a rehearsal studio that I rented and set up shop. It was extremely hard running a recording studio where a metal band would start rehearsing next door in the middle of a tracking session. Lucky for me, my room was right next to the entrance so I was able to convince most bands to take extra long smoke breaks so I could finish tracking. It got to the point I learned every band's rehearsal schedule so I could book clients in between those times.
After a year of living in Houston my wife and I bought our first house in which I convinced her to let me convert the garage into a studio. We gutted the garage and built my first legitimate sound proof home studio. After building this sweet new spot my business grew at a rapid pace.
Unfortunately, in April of 2016, my wife and I became victims of flood damage from what was coined the Tax Day Flood, as it happened on Tax Day. For months, with the help of friends and family, I tirelessly rebuilt our home and studio with my bare hands! We couch hopped for awhile until we eventually moved into a small camper trailer in the driveway. Needless to say, my wife made sure I finished the bedroom repairs first so we could at least sleep in our own bed again.
Once everything was rebuilt I reopened and business continued to grow only to be dismantled by Hurricane Harvey. Not more than 16 months after the Tax Day Flood, we lost our home and business again to at least five feet of category five water! Call me stubborn or a glutton for punishment, but not even two back to back floods could stop me from conquering my dreams!
We packed up what little we had left and eventually found ourselves in Tulsa, OK where we seized the opportunity to rebuild a new and improved studio with the mission to help you create music in a way that captivates listeners and cultivates A New Era of Music!
