THE STUDIO

1/10

OUR LOCATION

TreeSpeak Studios is located in scenic Columbia Heights, just outside of NE Minneapolis, Minnesota. We relocated in 2013, and we found the perfect location. There is a coffee shop across the street and any kind of food you can imagine just a few blocks away on Central Ave. You really couldn't ask for anything more.
 
We spent four years designing, demoing, and building the studio with our own hands, along with a great deal of help from our friends. We led the entire process, from putting up framing and hanging drywall to painting and installing acoustic treatment, and we are happy to call it our new home.
Our new facility has a comfortable live room, a vocal booth, an iso room, a large control room, a green room loaded with video games, and an open lounge/kitchen. Send us a message to get a studio tour scheduled!
