SCOTTLEHRERSOUND DESIGN

2nd Story Sound

In the summer of 2005, after over 20 years in Manahattan's Chelsea neighborhood, Scott Lehrer combined resources with his producing partner, composer Dick Connette, and moved his recording studio to 161 Chrystie Street in the Lower East Side. Their studio, 2nd Story Sound, is designed to provide high quality music recording and audio post-production resources to New York's creative community. The studio features a 1906 Steinway B grand piano, formerly of Sorcerer Sound and Allaire Studios.
