In November of 2018 Smokehouse Studios closed it’s doors as a recording studio for the last time. Many great records were crafted in these walls and for that we are grateful.

Jonathan McMillan who was managing Smokehouse studios since 2012 has resetup and brought with him a lot of the equipment from Smokehouse Studios to a studio called Bamm-Bamm Music located in Forest Hill. For any inquiries to deal with Smokehouse previous’ dealings or to record please don’t hesitate to contact him. The phone number is even still the same and you can find more details at
