Established in 1980 by PolyGram Records, Lion Studios is one of the few studios in South East Asia that has retained its analogue capabilities while being one of the first studios to embrace digital technology since 1985.
By combining the warm sound of analogue, recorded in a world-class studio designed for acoustic perfection, with the precision of digital systems, we are able to achieve pristine recordings of the highest possible grade.
During the PolyGram era, we have worked with artists such as Teresa Teng, Alan Tam (Hong Kong), Tracy Huang (Singapore/Taiwan), “Search", “Headwind", M. Nasir (Malaysia), Sho Jo Tai (Japan), and many more.
In 1990, the studio went independent. We established our Mastering Suite. Over the years, it became renowned throughout the region with productions coming to us for that final polish from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia & of course, Singapore. Projects entrusted to us include albums by “Funk Section" & “Andre Hehanusa" (Indonesia), “Nittaya" (Thailand) as well as “Kit Chan" from Singapore.
Among the many Classical music artists who have put their trust in us are Swiss composer Heinrich Schweizer, Singapore based composer conductor & educator Dr Robert Casteels, The National Youth Orchestra of Singapore, The Symphonic Wind Orchestra, The New Festival Orchestra, concert pianist Tedd Joselson, Guitarists Hucky Eichelmann and Guiliano Belotti, and the Singapore combination known as “Emis IV". Not to forget Singapore's own piano prodigy Clare Yeo.
Today, artists and producers come to us not only from Singapore, but also from Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan and Australia, as well as from Europe and the USA.
We are also the rehearsal space for established artistes such as JJ Lin and Stefanie Sun who require a large, acoustically treated and soundproofed room for their rehearsals prior to embarking on their concert tours.
We are expanding our capabilities to host live concerts as well as being an exclusive venue for hire. for events that require a truly unique and intimate setting.
So far, in 2022, we have hosted concerts in our studio for ASM Foodie & Entertainment Gang and Jimmy Chan, who was the resident pianist of Mandarin Hotel for 20 years.
