Comeback for Wooburn recording studio devastated by water damage

A RECORDING studio which was put out of business for more than two years is set to come back ‘bigger and better’ next month.
Tim Harbour says his Wooburn Green studios suffered severe rainwater damage during building work in 2010 which meant all his equipment was written off.
But after receiving compensation for the losses at Reality Studios, he and business partner Alex Maxwell have invested more than £70,000 on a major rebuild at Soho Mills Industrial Estate.
The new venture, to be called Ounce Studios, includes better equipment as well as a photography studio.
It will be a "one stop shop if you want to get a career", said Tim, promising to help young and unsigned artists develop a portfolio of music and videos, as well as doing their PR and promotion.
Tim and Alex have been signed to major labels in the past, writing and producing music for themselves and other artists including Rizzle Kicks, Pixie Lott and Claire Macguire.
Along with the relaunch they have announced a competition for all musicians and producers under 21 in the local area, to remix one of their old songs.
There is an open day at the studios on February 2, when details of how to enter will be available. The winner will receive a "significant amount" of recording equipment to get them started with a bedroom studio.
