Speaking about the vinyl CEO of Windmill Lane Studios, Naomi Moore said:

“When we took over Windmill Lane Recording Studios in 2009, we not only acquired a business, we inherited the most iconic facility of music creation in Ireland.  We were determined to nurture and celebrate its history, its outstanding creative output, and its influence on the world stage.   As we continue to work with leading and developing acts, we aim to celebrate and commit to vinyl, the talent that enters our famous green doors for another 40 years.

Put simply, this album will bring you back, pick you up and reaffirm your love for great tunes.  We are so proud, delighted, and privileged to share it with you.”

Nick Younger of Universal Music Ireland said:

“When Naomi and Aidan approached us with this idea, we jumped at the chance to partner with them. Few studios in the world can compare to the incredible list of artists and producers who have recorded in Windmill Lane.  With the very rich catalogue and the new talented artists recording in the studios today, I’ve no doubt that this will be the first volume of many.”

Follow the footsteps of the greats of modern music, the iconic studio welcomes the public to the reopening of their Studio Tours.
