Jeremy Ferguson has been recording since 1996, starting in his parent’s garage in Newburgh, Indiana, where he grew up. Jeremy attended Purdue University for two years for creative writing before transferring to Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, Tennessee where he received a degree in Music Production and Technology in December 2001. He interned at Alex the Great Recording from September 2001 through December 2001 under the tutelage of Brad Jones, Robin Eaton, and Eli “Lij” Shaw.
Jeremy bought a house in East Nashville’s Inglewood district in March 2003 where he opened his home studio, called Battle Tapes Recording. He feels that the studio will be a constant “work in progress” as more and more gear is accumulated, and space is added to the studio. What you’ll find is a studio that will have the equipment and instruments you’d like available to you to make something as beautiful or destroyed as you’d like, all within the comfort of the home.
Jeremy owns an extensive record collection which he calls from for his influences in the recording environment and pays no allegiance to any one recording style (liking productions varying from super-gloss pop records to 70s anechoic recordings to dirty as they can be 30s ghost recordings found in an abandoned home somewhere in the woods) and is only interested in making recordings that suit the music they are showcasing and are what those involved wish a specific recording to sound like.
Battle Tapes Recording and Jeremy Ferguson have gotten many notices in papers and magazines around the world, including London’s prestigious The Observer, The Nashville Scene, Forbes, Southeast Performer, and Nashville’s own Nashville Lifestyles, who gave Battle Tapes Recording its “Where To Make A Record Right Now” mention in its 2008 “Hot List” issue. Keep in mind that there are nearly 500 studios in East Nashville alone. (Or So I’ve been told)
Battle Tapes Recording also offers comfortable client lodging, as well as a large screen HD tv with hundreds of channels, wireless high-speed internet, an extensive blu-ray, dvd, vinyl, and book library, a large collection of Mojo magazine for the rock history inclined, private lounge, nintendo wii, two vintage pinball machines, full kitchen with gas stove, outdoor grills, and a comfortable and relaxed vibe.
If you’ve ever wanted to make a record onto the model of machine Pink Floyd recorded Dark Side of The Moon On (Studer A80 16-track) in a home environment but have it sound like a it was done in a big budget studio, this is the place for you.
