The Spot Studios / Bio

Welcome to The Spot Studios! Richard Veltrop and Glenn Sawyer have teamed up to provide artists/bands with a new production solution from their new studio in Lakewood, Co. The studio is built into a 7800 square foot house that features some incredible acoustic spaces. Artists looking for the classic John Bonham sound can take advantage of "The Cathedral", our primary drum room that features impressive vaunted ceilings, or if you're more inclined towards a tighter, warmer sound, check out the "Wood Room". In addition to great acoustic spaces, bands will be able to take advantage of free onsite accommodations in order to truly immerse themselves in the project. Rich and Glenn bring over 25 years of combined production and engineering experience to the table, and they are both lifelong musicians.
