“Magic is a word that’s too often misused in the record industry. Muscle Shoals is different, its one of the rare places where it really exists.”
Beats by Dr. Dre, the leading audio brand co-founded by legendary artist and producer Dr. Dre and Interscope Geffen A&M Chairman Jimmy Iovine, has announced that a portion of proceeds from all products on sale from Black Friday through Christmas will be allocated to restore the iconic Muscle Shoals Sound Studio to a fully functioning recording studio in an effort to preserve the rich history and culture that it represents.
The renovation effort will also include updating the legendary FAME Recording Studio, the original home of the Muscle Shoals’ sound. As a key part of this project, Beats will foster training opportunities for current and future musicians, producers and engineers to work and learn in these classic spaces where legendary artists like Aretha Franklin and The Rolling Stones cut some of the most influential songs of all time.
