Jesse Aycock at the famous Church Studio!
Tulsa native Aycock will throw a CD release/recording party for his "Inside Out of Blue" on July 17th at 8 p.m. and July 18th at 6 p.m. That in itself is some pretty great news as Aycock is a unique voice and gargantuan talent in Tulsa’s music scene.
But where he is doing it is even more remarkable: The Church Studio at 304 S. Trenton. (Check out the historic Church Studio on Facebook.)
Constructed in 1913 and used as an actual church for almost 60 years, it became famous for housing Leon Russell’s Shelter Records. It was the site of a dizzying array of talent and recording sessions from 1972-76. Russell designed the studio and, unsurprisingly, it comes with a few quirks from the Master of Time and Space.
I heard there was a completely enclosed room there. No doorway, ingress or egress. Just an empty room. I’m curious if it’s still there.
Only one way to find out.
Both nights’ of the CD release/recording party are being recorded and filmed.
