The Story Behind
As a production team of more than 10 years experience, we often get asked how Pimp My Song began. Back in the days of yore, as producers & musicians collaborating regularly, we each operated our own separate recording facility. Over time, we started to work with each other using the internet, and found it really convenient – so why not the same for our customers? This gives you access to our huge network of super-talented session players from all over the world!
We’re here to make an amazing song, EP or album for you. To get started, even only half a demo or a simple idea is enough, we can do the rest! Now you can finally record your music properly without needing a band or a studio. Check our availability and pricing via the front page form today, and send us your demos so we can discuss them with you. Read on below for a bit more about us!

Meet The Team
Our custom-built, dedicated facility
At Pimp My Song, we knew we’d need a place to hang out and get some serious work done. So, we decided to build our own recording studio to do exactly that! The Foxden Studio is our creative HQ and coming to work each day is always a pleasant surprise – we never know what awesome demos will be waiting in our inbox – and there’s never a dull moment amongst the workflow, banter, cast of hilarious characters, and of course, coffee by the bucketload.
A Gear Nerd’s Paradise
Our dedicated and purpose-built recording facility Foxden Studio is tucked into the idyllic hills near Byron Bay in Australia. We’ll often get asked about our gear, and while we think the performances, arrangement and vibe are the most important parts of a record, the equipment used does matter too. So here’s the ins and outs! (see what we did there?)
We’re rocking a solid collection of recording equipment, working with the latest version of ProTools with industry standard plugins from Universal Audio, Native Instruments, Slate Digital and more. We use high-end Apogee converters and we have a huge collection of modern and vintage microphones by Neumann, Shure, Reslo, Rode, Golden Age Project, EV, AKG, and more, plus preamps and dynamics by Avalon, Daking, Lindell Audio, API, Focusrite, Apogee, JLM, A.R.T., Ashly, Tascam, Fostex, SM Pro Audio, FMR Audio and always more coming!
We use outboard effects by Yamaha, Lexicon, Electrix, and the coveted TC Electronic Reverb 4000, along with its siblings the G-Major 2 and D-Two delay system.
We also have a vintage inline recording console by Tascam, along with its partner 16 track 1-inch tape machine for that full analog approach, where suited.
We’ve got a dedicated vocal-booth/tree-house positioned delightfully above the console, we’ve got air conditioning, a big comfy couch, an Xbox, Nintendo 64, and a host of modern and vintage acoustic and electric guitars, basses, a Hammond Organ with Leslie speaker, a Yamaha CP-70 electric baby-grand and a bunch of other rare and tasty synths, organs and effects units.
Through our recent endorsement arrangement with TC Helicon, we have a full compliment of TC Helicon and TC Electronic effects pedals and processors, and we also have our own cabinet full of GoPros and Canon DSLR cameras ready to make in-house videos on a whim. Check out our FOXDEN SESSIONS in the blog to see all of this in action!
This one-of-a-kind center of productive creativity is now available to you exclusively via Pimp My Song. Send us your demo or say hello (via the form above) to get started, and any/all of the above will be playing its part in turning your song into a radio ready joint!
