Hollywood, CA (October 10, 2014)–Ocean Way Recording in Hollywood has been renamed United Recording, returning to its original name when it first opened its doors in 1957. Founded by recording engineer and electronics inventor Bill Putnam with the backing of Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra, United Recording is reportedly responsible for more than one billion units in record sales.
“This is a pivotal time in the studio’s history,” stated United Recording Manager, Rob Goodchild. “We look to the future while holding ourselves to the standards of our past.”
"United Recording is a legendary studio in the heart of Hollywood. It is not only a piece of entertainment industry history but remains a highly sought-after production space for top artists," said Bill Humphrey, General Manager, Sunset Gower and Sunset Bronson Studios. The recording studios have remained untouched, with the original equipment in place run by technical staff, while the lounges and common spaces have undergone upgrades.
Hudson Pacific Properties acquired the studio in 2013; Victor Coleman, CEO of Hudson Pacific Properties, added, “The rebranding back to the original name, United Recording, is one component of a continued investment in strategic media and entertainment properties and reinforces our goal of providing exceptional multimedia production facilities and services to global media and entertainment clients.”
