C&I Studios Launches State of the Art Recording Studio in FAT Village

The Barn at C&I Studios Provides An Inspiring Space For Musicians To Work

On April 30th, C&I Studios will launch their new recording studio located at the East end of The Garden property at 516 NW 1st Avenue in Fort Lauderdale’s FAT Village. The studio prides itself on having all industry standard gear, microphones, and instruments; a collection of the best modern digital, and vintage analog styles of recording. Additionally, the studio is filled with a collection of analog, acoustic, and folk instruments that most musicians have never even heard of, much less seen in the same room.


Under the direction of Joshua Diaz, C&I Studios’ Audio Producer and lead singer of local band –kids-, the recording studio has already recorded artists such as Becca Mancari, Native Culture, and Kevin Maddox, and has worked on C&I Studios’ films and series, Grace From Above, The Distance, and Me You and the Road. On their inspiration to build out the studio, Diaz explains, “As an artist, if you want to create surreal art, you need a surreal space to work. South Florida has always had a dense population of recording artists; however, we lacked places for them to work. At C&I Studios, we are dedicated to creating a space for artists that feels like no room they've ever been in; a space that intrigues and inspires; a space you need to see for yourself to take it all in.”


The recording studio, aptly named The Barn at C&I Studios, was designed over the last 4 months by the staff of C&I. Using reclaimed wood, one off antique fixtures and vintage furnishings, they have designed a welcoming space with an intimate log cabin feel. The 1,000 square foot space can easily support up to a 10-piece band and can be used to record or rehearse music. To reserve the space and inquire about rental rates, email


The launch event is by invitation only and will take place on April 30th at 8pm at The Barn; Black Tie attire is requested. Guests will enjoy open bar, coffee from Brew Next Door, and lite bites. Tours of the space will be available, as well as, demos by local musicians.


The Barn is the newest venture of C&I Studios, a full service media production company with offices in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Washington DC, and Los Angeles. For more information on C&I Studios, visit
