DULUTH, Minn. – There is a new place where musicians can record in the Twin Ports.
Spoon’s Studio recently opened near the Lake Superior Zoo.
It is named after owner Solomon Witherspoon, who says he always wanted one. He hopes to make this space a place where the city can come together and welcome everyone.
“No matter who you are, where you’re from, whatever year, make, model you are, you can come to the studio, we make dreams come true,” Witherspoon says. “Whoever you are; if you want guitar lessons, we have guitar lessons, vocal lessons, piano lessons. Most importantly, I want people to shine, and that’s all that matters at Spoon’s Studio. That’s what we’re going to do unequivocally.
One of the first to record there was Tracey Blake, known for her songwriting and production. He says he wanted to help a close friend start his new business and assures musicians in the Duluth area that they are in good hands.
“It doesn’t matter what level of musician you are, how much money you have; Solomon just wants to give and help take you to the next level,” says Blake.
For people who know Witherspoon for the Spoon restaurant he runs, which was damaged by fire in August, he says he is not retiring from the food business. Her next project will combine her love of music and food in one place.
