Atlanta Guitar Art Studio Piece Now Resides In Iconic Sound Emporium Recording Studio in Nashville

Guitar Art - Sound Emporium Lobby

Studio General Manager Juanita Copeland and Guitar Artist Paul Heller

Sound Emporium Recording Studios is now the home of an exquisite Guitar Art piece provided by Paul Heller’s Atlanta based glass studio. The unique Guitar Art is a combination of stained glass and mosaics and occupies an entrance wall in the comfortable Sound Emporium lobby. Paul Heller, creative artist, explains that Studio General Manager, Juanita Copeland and Grammy winning Chief Engineer, Matt Andrews, “both immediately fell in love with the Red Guitar as the coloration was perfect for their attractive lobby design. Most often I custom design the guitars to enhance the existing design where color compatibility is the main criteria. However in this situation the coloration of this existing Red Guitar Art was ideal; everyone was so excited.”

Nashville’s oldest commercial recording facility, Sound Emporium Studios,  was established in 1969 and has had an incredible history of recording including Johnny Cash, Kenny Rogers, Willie Nelson, John Denver, REM, Trisha Yearwood, Don Williams, Kenny Chesney, Taylor Swift, Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, Elvis Costello, EmmyLou Harris, Alan Jackson, Will Hoge and many others.
