Echo Lounge Sound Debuts In Northwest Arkansas

Northwest Arkansas is very special to Shaun Bayles and Adam Rogers. It’s where they grew up, and where they began playing music together 25 years ago. And now, after returning home from Nashville, it’s home to their new joint venture, Echo Lounge Sound Studios.

Located in Johnson, Arkansas, Echo Lounge is a custom-built, boutique recording studio designed for a wide array of recording scenarios. The studio, which opened January 1st, can accommodate projects of all sizes, from full band tracking to overdubs and voiceovers. With a comprehensive roster of touring and studio musicians, Echo Lounge is able to assemble a cast of talent based on the song or the artist, creating a professional sound quality to make every project stand out.

Shaun Bayles moved to Nashville, Tennessee in 1998 to study guitar and music business at Belmont University. He has since performed all over the world with some of country, pop and rock music’s biggest stars, living legends, and many major label artists. He also works as a songwriter and producer with some of Nashville’s most talented players.

In 2002, Adam Rogers moved to Nashville to study at the School of Audio Engineering (SAE) Institute. During his training to become a recording and mixing engineer, he quickly developed his own innovative sound and style.   As a composer and producer, he has successfully created content that is enjoyed by a global audience. He has had the pleasure of working with top-charting songwriters, major label musicians, and several television networks.

The broad menu of services offered, combined with the unique skill set and experience provided by its team, makes Echo Lounge the only studio of its kind in Northwest Arkansas. Services include, but are not limited to: songwriting, artist pre- and post-production, song pre- and post-production, mixing and mastering of audio, artist development, music scoring, and commercial audio for radio, television and video productions.
