The Mississippi Arts and Entertainment experience will soon open their Governor’s Recording Studio located on-site.
“As the Max was evolving into the final stages, Governor Bryant noted that he wanted us to be able to record music here and help foster young Mississippians in the recording business and the radio,” said Jerome Trahan, marketing director.
The first ever artist to utilize the studio was Mississippi recording artist Steve Azar. “The song that Steve wrote One Mississippi, is to celebrate Mississippi by centennial. He never actually recorded it so he brought in his band for a daylong session and recorded one Mississippi right here at the Max,” said Jerome Trahan, marketing director. Inside the recording studio, you will find state of the art equipment. “We have top line Raven unit in the control room. It’s all touch screen with all the bells and whistles; all the microphones and key elements that you need to record. We have a beautiful baby grand piano,” said Jerome Trahan, marketing director. Once the studio doors open to the public, it will allow a local option for aspiring music artists. “Our mission is to inspire and educate that next generation of Mississippians to achieve like the Mississippians we honor here in the hall of fame at the Museum,” said Jerome Trahan, marketing director.
