After 28 years of making remarkable music with well-respected names in the music industry, Chicago-based recording studio Gravity Studios is still a business leader that continues to have the loyalty of its clients, both old and new. Artists from different parts of the world continue to seek the company out, knowing that their music will be handled by experts who are committed to producing exceptional music with them. The legacy it has built over the past years is still making a difference in the lives and careers of artists who once dreamed of sharing their music with the world. 

The beating heart of Gravity Studios is its founder Doug McBride, fondly known as the Jedi Master of the music industry for his unmatched contribution to the impressive successes of his clients. A music producer and chief mixing and mastering engineer by profession, McBride’s impeccable talent and skills in music production are second to none. It is for this very reason why music artists and record labels trust him with their projects. 

McBride is also a gifted instrumentalist and songwriter. He caught the eye of Atlantic Records when he was just 21 years old. He recorded Veruca Salt’s hit song Seether, which eventually landed the band a promising deal with Geffen Records. Seether was the first song ever recorded in Gravity Studios. McBride also spent two weeks with the 1990s band Smashing Pumpkins to produce the band’s demos that would later become its hit album Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness

The basic services being offered by Gravity Studios include audio recording, mixing, mastering, music production, session musicians and producers, editing, mix consultation, songwriting development, and music chart writing and arranging. McBride is nothing but proud of his crew, who have dedicated their lives to creating beautiful music with their clients over the years. 

The studio producers and sound engineers working at Gravity Studios are some of Chicago’s best of the best. Its dynamic and hardworking crew has a wealth of experience when it comes to mastering an EP, mixing an album, or simply developing an artist’s sound from scratch. All of the producers and engineers working directly with clients have an all-encompassing appreciation of different musical genres from indie to rock, hip-hop, alternative country, Gospel, neo-soul, punk, and contemporary Christian music. When clients walk into the studio, the journey is centralized on their personal journey and everything they need to give life to their songs. 

Gravity Studios has worked closely with many of the music industry’s biggest names, including Bon Jovi, Goo Goo Dolls, Fall Out Boy, Swag Lee, Veruca Salt, YBN Cordae, Jon Bellion, Frenship, Phillip Phillips, Silversun Pickups, Travis Mendes, Mavis Staples, Rod Stewart, Walkmen, Cupcakes, Dolly Varden, and Dovetail Joint, to mention a few. The company has also done collaborative work with well-known music production houses such as Sony Music, Universal Music, Amazon Studios, Atlantic Records, Columbia Records, and Bloodshot Records, among others. 

The past 28 years have been nothing but phenomenal for Gravity Studios and Doug McBride, and there is no doubt that the next decades will be just as extraordinary.
