Multi-platinum Robert Lang Studios announces a fresh new education program, a new live show in development, new gear and a new director of business development & legal affairs
SHORELINE WA, February 27, 2018: Building on a storied 44-year history, Seattle’s Robert Lang Studios (RLS) announces major new initiatives to expand its support of regional and national musical artists to help reinforce the greater Seattle area’s position as a market leader.
RSL has been home to international musicians including Dave Grohl’s Foo Fighters, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Dave Matthews, Odesza with Leon Bridges, Portugal. The Man as well as rising stars like Cameron Lavi-Jones and his band Gypsy Temple.
“As we look to the future, our commitment to developing talent and providing opportunities to learn while working in a professional studio grows deeper,” says founder/owner, Robert Lang. “That’s why we are fully integrating Robert Lang Academy, now with a new and improved curriculum, with Robert Lang Studios.”
The new RLS Academy offers a comprehensive one-year accreditation program as well as a la carte courses that prepare graduates for full-time work in recording and media production studios. With the education program now integral to RLS, students will get a formal education and comprehensive technical skills in an intimate and inspiring setting while working on real-world projects. Graduates of the Robert Lang Academy join a lineup of platinum-winning alumni including Eric Droppo who earned double platinum for his work on K$sha’s recent single, Praying.
“The fact that these students can walk our halls lined with gold and platinum records and be part of our living legacy gives them the competitive edge they need in a tough music industry,” explains Lang.
RLS is also developing a new live television program for distribution through a leading digital platform. Emerald City Live at RLS will be produced in RLS’s new wing which has been designed to accommodate a full orchestra, film and television post-production, and audio for gaming.
“We envision the show as Austin City Limits meets Live at Abby Road and plan to broadcast it initially online with later licensing to cable,” says entertainment attorney/singer-songwriter Lara Lavi who recently joined RLS to lead business development and legal affairs. “The show will include regional and national artists making it a definitive media stop for touring artists.”
RLS is also announcing that the Duality Room’s solid-state logic SEV3 is now supported by brand new Adam speakers which significantly steps up RLS’s mix capabilities.
“We are working to continuously expand our value to artists and students in a synergistic way,” says Lang, “Our future looks brighter than ever.”
