Mics Hot: Barrie Recording Studios

Mics Hot: Barrie Recording Studios


Regular readers of this space already know that the growing Barrie Music Scene is killing it with original artists and talented performers.

And that talent extends behind the microphone.

Barrie is stacked with independent recording studios. Although recording software and equipment is readily available for you to use in your garage, there’s no substitute for quality. And the experience of working in a studio with a veteran producer can only help to elevate your audio project.

Read on for some of the top studios in town.


MIX 11

Having worked with local artists like the Noolands and Bigfoot’s Hand and internationally known talent like Martin Short and Catherine O’Hara, Mix 11 offers mixing, recording and mastering.




Operated by Barrie’s resident Godfather of live music, Shane Heath (owner of the Foxx Lounge) One Star has worked with a ton of local artists as well, including Cudbear.

Speaking of staples of the Barrie music scene; mega talented performer, producer and all around amazing dude Shane L Dennis owns and operates Unity Market Studio.

Doubling as an outreach locale and a fantastic spot for a bite to eat or a coffee, the studio is a full range operation and has produced a ton of great work over the years.



Likewise, we had a chance to check out this new studio in the winter, owned and operated by music industry pro Caley Kelly.

Moreover, the casual atmosphere and high quality equipment makes for a creative environment, and Caley’s abilities were on full display when we partnered with YIKES! Comedy Troupe to produce a Xmas themed audio spoof at the studio.

All The Good (And Occasional) Bad of What Went Down in Barrie Last Week

There are three certainties in life…



Social media.

And if you are tweeting, posting and talking about Barrie on social media, we want to hear from you!

Every week we will do a quick recap of the week that was in Barrie based on your pics, posts and videos.

Whether it’s store openings, foodie reviews, feelgood stories, fun facts about Barrie, even bizarre bird formations over the marina, we want to share it.

The Social Recap – The Week That Was Feb. 22nd

It’s been a LONG winter, given all that we have had to contend with. But the dawn of the warmer weather seasons are just around the corner. Or around the bay…

Now we’ve heard of Ice Huts. But ice landing fields? These pilots landed on the lake so they could get out for a spot of lunch downtown. Great capture from @jeffburbz!

And even among the cold and snow, we can find the winter beauty.

It’s been hard not going to our favourite haunts, particularly cultural centres like the MacLaren Art centre and the Film Festival. But fortunately, they keep coming up with cool online and virtual events for us to keep connected!
