In 1965 Rockfield was acknowledged to be the first residential recording studio in the world. The now famous studios have played host to many of the world’s biggest artists – Rush, Oasis, Iggy Pop, Nigel Kennedy, Simple Minds and in 1975 was the primary studios used by Queen for the recording of the greatest pop record of all times ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. As well as having a successful recording studio, Rockfield has also had a successful record label with such artists as Dave Edmunds, Hawkwind and Budgie to name a few.
With the current explosion of the internet they are now expanding into music distribution, record labels and music publishing.
