Prolific songwriter producer and studio owner Garth Porter is a self confessed gear junkie with a life long fascination with all aspects of the recording process, having produced, played on and written hit songs in pop, rock and country genres in every decade from the 1970s till today. Garth has been awarded many gold and platinum albums as well as a swag of golden guitars. Some of his artists include: Lee Kernaghan, Tania Kernaghan, Sara Storer, Gina Jeffreys, Colin Buchanan, Troy Cassar-Daley, Tom Curtain, Leo Sayer, Straalen McCallum, Jayne Denham and Markus Meier. Rancom St. Studios is the culmination of Garth's dream to build a studio with features that he found lacking at other studios – purpose designed for recording/mixing live bands, a comfortable atmosphere in a quiet location, convenient free car parking for clients, eye-line contact between all isolated acoustic spaces, real daylight visible from a large control room (view to a back yard with a big tree AND a Hills Hoist !) , a minutes walk to great food/coffee shops, outdoor tree shaded chill/eating area, and client comfort a high priority that includes a kitchen area, pool table, and client internet facility.
