Welcome to the Shoebox.

The original Shoebox Recording Studio is a story that started more than 20 years ago. That’s when original 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. These days, the two collaborate on some projects, but the Studio is now operated by Bryan Ruckstuhl.

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. 

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


Located in Kanata, Ontario, Canada.
