Get To Know.... Uptown Recording

"Uptown is one of Chicago’s oldest communities, one that brims with a rich heritage from the Gilded Age to Prohibition.  Fast-forward to its current incarnation as an urban melting pot that hosts music of all genres, Catherine and Matt Denny began Uptown Recording in 2001 in the shadow of Broadway & Lawrence, a short walk to the area designated by Mayor Emanuel as a new entertainment district giving added muscle to those who want to rebuild the music scene around the venues that have made Uptown U-P-T-O-W-N, like the Aragon Ballroom, Riviera Theatre, and The Green Mill."
So begins an article about Uptown Recording in this month's Illinois Entertainer magazine, spotlighting the studio (and home) at Clifton and Broadway, along with its owners and staff.  Read about the history of the studio, what bands record there, and what the future may hold.  It's all here.
