REC ROOM RECORDING
RECORD. EDUCATE. COMMUNITY.
REC Room Recording is a recording studio located in the heart of downtown Lafayette, Indiana within the Tippecanoe Arts Federation (TAF), and is affiliated with the Songwriters Association of Mid-North Indiana.
Rec Room Recording was born from a recurring theme presented by young songwriters who have literally submitted hundreds of songs over the past twenty years to the Shirley Martin Scholarship for Young Songwriters. That theme was their shared desire to record their songs professionally, to learn how to record on their own equipment and the common thread of a willingness to learn from others.
In 2019, the Songwriters Association Of Mid-North Indiana “SAMI” who sponsors the Shirley Martin Scholarship took the opportunity to apply for and receive a grant provided by North Central Health Services. The grant fulfilled the desire to build a world-class studio that would be accessible, affordable to the community and be a focal point for the recording arts.
Songwriters Association of Mid-North Indiana
SAMI was co-founded in 1992 by songwriter's Scott Greeson, Shirley Martin, Anita Wood, Mark Skidmore and Brian Koning as a resource for the purpose of education, encouragement, networking and development of songwriters in mid-north Indiana.
Through the means of workshops, showcases and monthly meetings, SAMI has sustained growth through unselfish support of area musicians.
The Shirley Martin Scholarship for Young Songwriters supports young songwriters in memory of Shirley Martin who passed away November 10, 1998.
