Relocation Press Release

One of Sydney’s oldest and most iconic music recording studios relocates to the Central Coast. 

Damien Gerard Studios has been established since the mid 1980’s and holds a special place in the heart and soul of the Australian Music Scene. The early days in Ultimo were spent nurturing bands such as Spy Vs Spy, Hoodoo Gurus, The Church, Died Pretty and International Producers such as Kevin Shirley, Randy Jackson, Jack Endino to name a few. Then after moving to Balmain for the past 18 years supporting new artists such as Big White, Sunscreen, Evan Dando(Lemonheads), Ken Stringfellow (REM, The Posies) and of course many others have come through the doors in the 30+ year history.
Changes to the existing building in Balmain in June this year required the historical studio to be relocated. They say timing is everything and this need for relocation has resulted in a new partnership being formed starting a new chapter in DG’s story. The iconic studio has found a new home 1 hour North of Sydney in West Gosford, just off the M1 Motorway.
The New Address is
19 Grieve Road (formerly Grieve Close)
West Gosford 2250

Marshall Cullen said
"It’s been coming for a while. I’ve been living on the central coast for nearly 15 years now. The increasing development, high density housing pressure and high traffic volume in Sydney has accelerated in recent times. It really did feel like we needed to take the studio to the next level and in a more suitable and relaxed location. Following a recommendation, I met with Jason and inspected the West Gosford site and it was the obvious way to go. I finally get to realise my dream studio."
Jason Stenning said
“After meeting Marshall and showing him the site it was clear that our interests and goals were aligned and it was quickly decided that my prized man cave and studio space would be developed into the new DG’s complex. When I look back I literally made the decision within an hour of meeting Marshall. His passion for the industry and love of music was obvious and I was sold on the idea immediately. Fast forward to today and the site has morphed into an amazing and unique space. Stay tuned for the official opening date and ensuing industry launch parties”         

The new facility will maintain the original equipment, plenty of new additions and of course the friendly DG’s Vibe. Everyone’s favourite couch or two will still be sticking around. A huge range of vintage equipment has been added including some amazing microphones including one of the rarest mics on the planet – a one off AKG ELA M 251: the actual factory calibration microphone from the Telefunken Plant, Neumann U87, Neumann Original 1960's M49, U47w as well as a host of Vintage Backline and Instruments including electric guitars (Gibson: Les Paul’s, Explorer, SG, Fender: Strats, Scorpion, Jaguar plus others). Also available are some beautiful vintage acoustic guitars such asGibson J45, numerous Guilds, a healthy range of Matons, Cole Clark, Martin D28and a host of other instruments as well as a brand new Kawai Upright Piano.
