HISTORY

Telejet Music Studio is owned and operated by
Toronto producer singer songwriter Gene Hughes.

A music-making space: Before we put together all the elements of a professional studio, Gene and friends used the place for music writing and rehearsing from 1990 to '96. Demos were made during this time using multi-track cassette recorders. In '97, the pro reel-to-reel analogue decks came with the Soundtracks recording console. Gene's band Telejet recorded their first album "Meeting Place" and began recording John McMullin's classic "Beginners" album to tape. Mixes went down to a Studer half track and DAT. Gradually over time, more and more musician friends came to rely on the studio which eventually became known as Telejet Music Studio. Many albums, singles and musical projects have been completed over the years. Presently, the studio is equipped with all the modern gear one needs to create any style of record. We are very proud of all the work we have done. Our records have been released internationally and streamed and aired throughout the world. To see some of the people who have graced us with their presence, please look at our Wall of Name.


The studio walls are steeped with all the good vibes of the joy of music making. Drop in for a visit.
