A Little Of Our Story
Producers and bandmates
Park Sound Studio’s history dates back to 2016 on a fall night in Revelstoke, BC. While on the last day of a 2-week Western Canadian tour in their former band, Echo Nebraska, producers Andy Schichter and Dan Ponich sought to open a studio together. The next day, they made the 7-hour drive back to Vancouver and viewed the space that would become home to Park Sound Studio. The studio officially opened in March 2017.
Park Sound Presents
Since September 2017, we have hosted monthly intimate concerts in our studio featuring local and touring acts. The shows provided artists an opportunity to perform in a recording studio environment in front of a live audience. The concert series was also one of the only outlets on the North Shore to showcase original music.
Park Sound Goes Virtual
Virtual concert series
On March 21st, 2020, we moved quickly to host a virtual concert on Instagram with some of our favourite local acts. That night raised over $1,400 for the performing artists. It was so much fun that we made it a regular Saturday night event for the next few months, as COVID-19 restrictions prevented musicians from performing live. The streams featured a wide range of talents BC has to offer, including: 2017 CBC Searchlight winners, The Long War; 2016 CBC Searchlight winner, Desiree Dawson; & 2017 MMVA winner Tonye Aganaba.
