The Roots of Eastern Kentucky Bluegrass

I am thrilled to talk about the things we are doing here at the studio! We have only scratched the surface of what we can do here, but we have already done full-blown sessions of Praise and Worship music, Mountain Gospel and Bluegrass. We are currently working on an entire project of Americana music with all original material. We are prepared to meet all recording needs! Two number one Bluegrass songs have come through here. We’re off to a great start, and the sky’s the limit. 

Recording is nothing new for Louisa, KY. Back in the 1980s and into the 1990s, a studio of considerable measure was operated here. Otis L. Dillon was the owner and operator of River Tracks Studio. Ralph Stanley, Larry Sparks, Lost and Found, John Hartford, and Alison Krauss graced the facility with their talents under Otis’s capable hands. He was a mentor to so many musicians but never really got the recognition he should have earned. Best of all about him, He was a God-fearing man and made no difference in people. All were given respect and full attention, whether famous or just shade trees or back porch pickers. This is one policy that we aspire to replicate here at Torchlight Studio!

Otis passed away a few years ago, but his legacy lives on in the many recordings he worked on and the countless lives he touched. He is missed. 

If you are a budding musician or a seasoned professional, we can help you capture your musical art for the ages. Our music is our legacy. Preserve yours! Let us help you do it. We’ll be with you every step of the way.
