Sunset Sound celebrates 60 years as legendary Hollywood recording studio



HOLLYWOOD – It started out as a music creation studio for the Walt Disney Company, but went on to host legendary rockers like Led Zepplin, The Rolling Stones, and Van Halen.

Tutti Camarata opened Sunset Sound Recorders in 1960.

Camarata has produced recordings for Disney classics like “Bambi”, “Mary Poppins” and “101 Dalmatians”.

Although the studio was for Disney music, it still belonged to Camarata.

Legendary artists like Prince, The Doors, The Beach Boys and Janis Joplin as well as contemporary stars like Rage Against the Machine, Maroon 5 and Sheryl Crow have all recorded there.

“If the walls could speak, it would be quite overwhelming,” said Sunset Studio President Paul Camarata.

Paul Camarata, Tutti Camarata’s son, took over the owner in the 1970s. He continued the historic moments that happened in this studio.

According to Drew Dempsey, Marketing Director of Sunset Sound Recorders, Janis Joplin was in this studio on the day of her death. And he said it was the last recording studio the Beatles ever put together.

“It’s just so special to me and our fans and the bands that come here,” Dempsey said.
