HISTORY 

Damien Gerard Studios is one of the most established studios in Sydney. Founded in 1982 by Luke Gerard Everingham and Adam Damien Everingham. The facility began as one recording studio and three rehearsal rooms in the Old Wool Store Warehouse on the corner of William Henry and Wattle St in Ultimo. 

In 1985 Marshall Cullen and David Sykes took over ownership of the facility. During this time Russell Pilling began his long standing role as chief engineer, after being trained by Marshall, Russell is still currently the chief engineer to this day. In 1990 Elia Green became partner taking over from David Sykes . Over the next few years recording became the main function and two of the rehearsal rooms where upgraded to another recording studio.

During this time many well known engineers trained  at Damien Gerard Studios and went on to work in the industry including David Trump, Nick Hartley, Michael Woodcock, David Springer and Steve Coull

RELOCATION

In 1997 Charring Cross studios moved their Neve/Studer control room into the one remaining rehearsal studio creating three recording studios in the one complex. In 1999 the Ultimo building was closed for development and the studio moved temporarily to the Festival Studios building in Pyrmont. 

In  2001 The original Electric Avenue building on Mullens St in Balmain (designed and built by Sydney Studio Legend Phil Punch and home to The Church for many years))became available, and  the studio found a new permanent location.  The premises now houses two rooms, the iconic Studio A which has one large live room and three separate booths as well as The Red Stairs Room - a mastering/mixing suite with a vocal booth.
