Las Vegas, NV (March 22, 2021)—Recording industry veteran Zoe Thrall has taken on the role of director of studio operations at Las Vegas’ The Hideout Recording Studio. Thrall brings decades of experience in studio management to The Hideout, from being an artist and engineer herself, to running Las Vegas’ Studio at the Palms for the past 15 years.
Beginning her career at the famed Power Station Studios in New York City, Thrall spent years as both an assistant engineer and in studio management. It was at Power Station where Thrall met producer/musician/actor Little Steven Van Zandt who hired her to work for him as an engineer and as a musician in his band Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul. Thrall went on to become president of Power Station Studios, as well as the manager at Hit Factory Studios in New Year City, before arriving to Las Vegas in 2005 to oversee the opening and operations of Studio at the Palms.
“I’m thrilled we get to join forces during a really exciting time for the studio,” said Thrall. “We’ve been friendly competitors for years and I’ve always admired the work that has come from The Hideout; now I get to be a part of the evolution of the studio so it’s really exciting.”
The Hideout Recording Studio is a full-service recording and production facility near the Las Vegas Strip. The studio features Ocean Way sound systems, Solid State Logic (SSL) consoles, Avid Pro Tools HD and a collection of notable outboard gear and vintage microphones.
Owner Kevin Churko noted, “We’ve been a family-run business for all these years, but as we’ve grown, my daughter Khloe Churko also grew into an entrepreneur; managing me, taking on the role of C.F.O. for my various companies, as well as running a few of her own. We needed someone to take the reins of the studio and run. I’ve known Zoe for more than 15 years, so she feels like a member of the family, so it’s a great match.”
It’s a busy time for Thrall as she’ll also be serving as co-chair of the upcoming2021 151st Convention of the Audio Engineering Society, taking place in Las Vegas this October.
