The Studio

TreeSpeak Studios is located in scenic Columbia Heights, just outside of NE Minneapolis. Our facility has a comfortable live room, a control room, two isolation booths, a green room to relax in while you're not tracking, and an open lounge/kitchen. Send us a message to get a studio tour scheduled!


TreeSpeak had humble beginnings in a practice space. In 2013, we acquired an abandoned dentist's office, and the next four years were spent converting the building into a recording studio. Along with the help of our amazing friends, we did everything from demolition to framing and finishing work, and we are proud to call it our home.
