Welcome to the Shoebox.

The Shoebox Recording Studio is a story that started more than 15 years ago. That’s when co-owners Bryan Ruckstuhl and Jonathan Chandler, both long time contributors to Ottawa’s music scene, met in a small, local bar and their creative paths have crossed ever since.

Accented in 100-year-old barn board, the creative space provides a warm and cozy atmosphere. The studio is unique, welcoming, well thought out and inspiring. It boasts world class analog and digital recording and mixing gear, as well as a variety of instruments. 

The Shoebox also offers boutique artist services such as radio tracking, websites and social media set up as well as album launches, promotion and event management.

No matter the need, Shoebox aims to make your creative project one of a kind.


Please Note: We will be moving the location of The Shoebox and restructuring some of our services from Nov 2018 - Jan 2019. We sincerely hope you come along for the ride. Please contact us with any questions or projects you may in the meantime.
