About Silent Sky Studios

Silent Sky Studios is a recording studio in Northeast Arkansas - just 15 miles east of Jonesboro, minutes from Southeast Missouri, and about an hour from Memphis. The Silent Sky story began back in 2008 as a vision for Jon Goad (the studio's owner), to simply have a nice rehearsal and recording space for his own band. After many months of research, planning, and construction, the building was complete. When finished, the result was arguably one of the nicest small recording facilities in the area. In the years since, we've helped dozens of area bands, solo musicians, and singers make their musical dreams a reality. With over 20 years of experience writing, performing, and recording music, we can help you find the sound you're searching for.

Silent Sky is a computer-based digital studio with a virtually unlimited track count, a variety of outboard rack gear, a wide array of VST plugins, and a large collection of professional quality microphones. We can record up to 26 tracks simultaneously--more than enough for tracking all of the players in a live band at one time. At Silent Sky, we have the tools and the skills needed to help you take your music to the next level. so contact us today to schedule your session.

We offer a standard hourly rate, as well as a variety of recording packages. So, if you're a singer who wants to record your voice with a pre-recorded track, a solo artist with just a voice and a guitar, or a full band with guitars, bass, drums, keyboards, etc., give us a call. Our Tracking Room is 24' x 22'--plenty large enough to accomodate a full band (actually, a couple of bands!). Both our Tracking Room and Control Room feature professional acoustic treatments by Ready Acoustics, for the ultimate in sonic excellence.

There are several recording studios in and around Jonesboro, Arkansas to choose from, but your music deserves the best. Don't be taken for a ride by a fly-by-night operation that can't deliver quality work, or spend your hard-earned money to record in someone's "home studio" (spare bedroom). We've invested thousands in our facilities, equipment, and skills so that we can deliver the highest level of quality for reasonable price, and we take our work seriously.

A Note about Rates: Unlike many recording studios, our rates and packages are all-inclusive. There are no hidden costs. You don't have to pay an extra rate for an Engineer to be provided, or a rental fee to use a certain microphone, preamp, or other piece of gear. When you're recording in our studio, all of our recording equipment, studio space, knowledge, and experience are at your full disposal. We will do whatever it takes to get the best possible sound for your recording project.
