About Southsea Sound.

The Studio itself is run by Tim Greaves and Eleanor Morgan. The studio is spread out over two floors with two Live Rooms, Control Room, Vocal booth, Green Room and Courtyard Garden.

All rooms are connected to allow for many recording set ups. We are so passionate for bands to sound how THEY want to sound!

With Free Wifi and refreshments available in a relaxing and creative environment, we hope to build strong relationships with bands and artists alike.

Located in the heart of Albert road, Southsea you will be a stone’s throw away from Portsmouth’s premier music venue, The Wedgewood Rooms, Music/record shops, craft ale pubs as well as huge choice of restaurants and takeaways. Recently Portsmouth's premier craft ale bottle shop opened directly behind the studio. Check out 'The Beer Musketeer' and feel free to have a cheeky beverage.

Fancy a break? The seaside is a 10 minute walk away.
