Graig Smith studio gear

Craigsnbacon Productions is a studio situated a 90-minute drive north of Toronto, on the southern shore of Georgian Bay in Collingwood, Ontario. Upon entering the studio, you’re transported to a time before the world became digitized, to an era and locale where music and its creation were intrinsic to life itself. Housed in a structure dating back to the early 1900s, the studio boasts pine floors and high ceilings, creating an open-concept recording area that serves as an exceptional creative space. The atmosphere is conducive to fostering creativity, facilitating writing sessions, and embarking on
recording your hit record.

Located in downtown Collingwood, our studio enjoys proximity to numerous culinary options. Additionally, it is just a few minutes away from the Blue Mountain resort, offering access to great hiking trails and stunning beaches along Georgian Bay. For extended recording stays, the studio provides comfortable guest rooms and a kitchen with all the amenities.

While the studio exudes a throwback vibe to another era, it is equipped with state-of-the-art gear to produce the modern sounds required for your next song or record.
