Who we are
Continental Studios, located in Columbia, TN was founded in 2014 by Damien Launay. Damien graduated from MTSU with Bachelors of Science in Audio Production and a minor in Business Administration. Previous to Continental Studios, Damien has recorded at The Walnut House in Murfreesboro, TN. He has also worked with studios such as Kilowatts Studio (Murfreesboro), Black Fox Entertainment (Nashville), and The Record Shop (Hermitage).
Damien’s love for music started in early highschool while he was attending The Webb School in Bell Buckle, TN. He began making beats and remixes using FL Studio and soon set up his first recording booth using a closet and blankets for soundproofing. He dabbled in Hip-Hop while sparking an interest in EDM (Electronic Dance Music). Damien released 3 EDM Albums (Dubstep Reasons, Fragment, and Sativa) onto iTunes in the genres of House, Drum & Bass, and Dubstep, before releasing a Hip-Hop EP in April of 2014.
Aside from his own releases, Damien has produced over 500 songs in the past year for over 87 clients in the Middle Tennessee area. Genres include Hip-Hop, R&B, EDM, Alternative, Bluegrass, Reggae, Rock, Pop, and Soul. Damien continues to record in Columbia, TN, while mastering projects for clients, and making new beats for lease or exlcusive sale.
They’ve said about us
Offers very affordable rates, and is reasonable if you are strapped for cash at the moment. The studio is soundproofed well and has an astounding mic! After mastering, my vocals always come out very clear and full. The studio itself is not luxurious, but the quality recording sessions and fair prices make up for that. I would recommend it to anyone in the area who is looking for solid recording and mastering.
The first time I heard myself recorded was at continental studios, I was very nervous to hear my voice but Damien made sure I felt like I was in a judgment free environment anytime I record it will be at continental studios
Great setup with professional high end microphones and equipment and the price makes it seem to be too good to be true. Can’t find better quality anywhere else in the area
Damien is willing to work with your vision for your song. He gives a lot of helpful suggestions and audio techniques that take your song to the next level. Damien also had a wide variety of genres, I loved that he was able to help produce a pop song of mine, it’s hard to find someone who is patient and willing to let the song transform and be creative. I highly recommend to work with him!
I’ve worked with Damien on several occasions to record an electronic dance album. He’s definitely a professional engineer who knows his way around a recording studio. He helped me establish some amazing sounding synths and beefy basslines. Would definitely recommend going to Damien for any of your audio needs.
Continental Studios is a Grade A experience with top notch engineering. Damien has some of the best sounds coming from Continental Studios, he is a true engineer.
