Noiseblock is a turn-key, state-of-the-art recording studio, production facility and publishing company located in downtown Florence, Alabama – the heart of the world-famous Muscle Shoals music industry.


If you’re searching for a friendly, laid-back, down-to-earth atmosphere to set your creative juices flowing, look no further: The Muscle Shoals music scene possesses a mystical, one-of-a-kind musical vibe that you simply have to experience to fully understand. World-class artists such as Aretha Franklin, the Rolling Stones, Paul Simon, Rod Stewart and Bob Seger chose to record in Muscle Shoals for a reason, and Noiseblock brings that fabled musical magic into the 21st century. On top of all the creative resources available right at our fingertips, Noiseblock is close enough to Nashville to pull in any specialized skills or talent your project might require.


The studio is owned and operated by Grammy Award winner Gary Baker, who personally oversees every project we produce. Our experienced in-house staff of writers and musicians can quickly turn the essential elements of your promising studio project into an inspired musical triumph. We also offer a wealth of state-of-the-art resources in artist development, songwriting and production services.


“We don’t accept every project that walks through the door,” says Baker, who carefully selects Noiseblock’s clients based on character, style and overall musical potential.


Every artist knows that whether you’re creating a single demo cut or tracking an entire CD master, the challenges of studio production can be intimidating and a bit overwhelming. Our specialty at Noiseblock is creating a highly productive and extremely relaxed relationship with each client and extracting every ounce of musical talent and inspiration that each artist has to offer. Whether we’re working with first-time artists or seasoned professionals, we always deliver a first-class, top-quality final product.


You won’t find a finer recording studio or production facility in the world that can also provide all of the in-house personal and professional services that Noiseblock consistently delivers.


We look forward to working with you soon!
