What's new...

Riverrun Studios is a long established recording studio that has been making great records since 1991! We are based on the rural Bedfordshire/Cambridgeshire border and offer a first class recording facility in a quiet secluded location. With alternative live & control room set-ups for varying acoustics, a lounge area, kitchen and bathroom/shower facilities, our self-contained studio provides a recording haven for all styles of music, artist or band.

Whilst the studio is spacious, it still maintains its character and is a great environment to inspire writing sessions, recording projects or rehearsals. Based around an Apple Mac and Pro Tools rig with Empirical Labs, SSL, TL Audio, Focusrite and Digidesign preamps/dynamics, we also have an extensive collection of new and classic microphones including AKG, Shure, Sontronics & Rode.

Alongside the recording equipment, we also have a range of instruments available to musicians & artists including a house drum kit, amps, guitars & percussion. The studio itself is based in the quiet village of Potton with easy access to London via the A1 and rail links from Sandy station (40 minutes from/to London Kings Cross). Situated in the area around the studio are also a number of pubs, restaurants, takeaways and supermarkets.

"Working with David has been a real pleasure for us as a band and as individuals. He puts in an awful lot to his work, he came to our first gig, saw us play live and basically was really pro active in getting us into the studio. That reflected in the energy and frankly the dedication he showed to our music. With his advice and guidance we were played on the BBC, and are going in for a live radio session soon. Definitely recommended!” Have Yacht/Have Not (Band)

“From start to finish our time at River Run Studios was excellent. Dave Leighton makes sure the process from recording right through to mixing is perfect by suggesting his own flare throughout, he shows a real passion for music and it's this that sets RiverRun apart from the rest. A true ambition to make the most out of anything and everything that goes on inside those four walls, we won't be recording anywhere else!”Taking Liberties (Band)

“David recently recorded and produced an EP for me over three days at River Run Studios. I am so pleased with the results. His attention to detail and creativity have bought a unique and unexpected feel to the music as has his inventive approach to recording and engineering sound. David is patient, calm and puts people at ease whilst always maintaining an efficient, professional environment in the recording space. Over the course of the three days there were a large number of musicians in and out, and this was all managed brilliantly. I would highly recommend him to musicians and bands alike.”Libby Caulfield (Artist)

“We recorded our Debut EP with David Leighton and he made us feel very at ease with the whole process. David got the sound that we were looking for absolutely bang on in each of the tracks, we'll definitely be recording future releases with David.”The Jebs (Band)
