Curley and King
Cincinnati is looking to assert itself as a center for musical talent by recognizing its past. One of the first steps is a historical marker for King Records and hopefully a new King studio. Click the link above for the full story.
While still in preliminary planning and fundraising stages and perhaps years away, already signed on to operate the proposed King studio is John Curley, the former Afghan Whigs member and owner of Ultrasuede Studio in Northside. Curley and other backers of the project see the new King Center as a music and arts cultural touchstone for the area, not to mention an effort to literally reconnect Cincinnati with its musical soul.
“What we’d want to do with the recording studio is provide opportunities for internships and workshops and do more community outreach to get kids interested in learning about recording, performance and all aspects of the music business,” Curley says.
