Jimbo Mathus re-opens Delta Recording Service

Jimbo Mathus, producer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist has re-opened his popular Delta Recording Service in Como, Mississippi.

 

The studio, previously located in Clarksdale, Mississippi, produced over 70 projects in just over a year, including Grammy and Handy award-winners and nominees Elvis Costello, Big George Brook, and Duwayne Burnside.

 

The facility brings together top-tier Mississippi and Memphis producers, engineers, writers and session men and women in a dynamic, energetic environment.  The result is a recording studio that enables artists to create fully-realized recordings that are affordable and high-quality.

 

“It’s a one-stop studio for clients,” Mathus says, noting that the facility can supply musicians from genres as varied as  “south Memphis rappers to North Mississippi fife and drums to old-school rhythm sections.”

 

Mathus says that the Delta staff specializes in roots music of all kinds and brings insight and skill to projects.

 

“When clients walk through the door and need it, we’ve got it,” he said.  “And they have a ball working with the staff here, too!"

 

Established in conjunction with Olga Wilhelmine and 219 records, Delta Recording Service also offers a full spectrum of services for do-it-yourself artists, including CD art, manufacturing and national distribution via Redeye Records.
