Backstreet Studio is a recording and rehearsal facility hidden away down a rather quaint alleyway behind The Cleveland Hotel – just north of Redcar’s historic town centre. For the past four years, Backstreet Studio has been providing quality recording and rehearsal services, and in most recent years, have begun to offer PA hire to those throughout the region.
I spoke to Backstreet Studio owner Jonny Phage to find out more about exactly what the studio has to offer: “The studio has two rehearsal rooms, both fully equipped with drum kits, bass & guitar amps, and a vocal PA with microphones. The main rehearsal room doubles as the recording room, along with a separate isolation room which can be used for recording drums or vocals. We record through an analogue/digital hybrid mixing desk into either Logic Pro or Cubase and have a dedicated listening room to help with mixing and mastering. We can cater for any scenario, from solo acoustic acts & MC’s to complex band setups. Past clients have included such musicians as Kerrianne Covell, BreMusiq, The Magick Godmothers, The Likkor Men, MC Banks, The Approved, Krome and The Wainstones, to name just a few.”
Along with his qualifications in Computer Science, Music Technology and Production, Jonny Phage is a working musician. He has for several years played in an array of bands, as well as working on solo projects – both original and tributes. As a musician, Jonny is completely conscious of the creative processes involved in making great music, and as well as aiming to provide top quality recordings and services, he also aims to provide a relaxed and comfortable environment for his clients to get the best from themselves in their musical endeavours.

Backstreet Studio offers two fantastic rehearsal rooms which allow you to practice without breaking the bank and splashing too much cash. Priced at just £10.00 per hour, rehearsal rooms include a full backline of quality equipment and as previously mentioned by the owner himself, they each feature a vocal PA, two guitar amps, a bass amp and a choice of two drum kits.
Over the past few years, Backstreet Studio has established a solid reputation as one of the region’s finest recording and rehearsing facilities and has earned its fair share of regular clients.
With an impressive history of great online reviews, the studio’s fantastic facilities have led many to commend Backstreet’s quality service and ability to maintain a relaxed environment throughout hire – a factor that is sure to please owner Jonny Phage as he strives to maintain exactly that.
Other clients have praised Backstreet Studio for the range of first-rate equipment available to make use of during recordings and rehearsals. One client praised the studio firmly and stated: “Brilliant place to rehearse. Loads of space to dance around, full drum kit and other bits I don’t understand that look awesome. Also, they have very friendly staff!”
