Experience rock 'n roll history at the fully-restored Church Studio in Tulsa's Pearl District, the recording studio previously owned by Oklahoma music legend Leon Russell. The Church Studio has worn many hats since its original conception as The Grace M. E. Church in 1915. However, its biggest transformation is credited to Leon Russell, who purchased the church in 1972.

Housing Russell's label "Shelter Records," the recording center became the epicenter for Tulsa Sound and helped some of the world's biggest musical acts record their award-winning work. Artists include Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, George Harrison, Dwight Twilley, JJ Cale, The GAP Band, Freddie King, Tom Petty, Phoebe Snow, Kansas, Willie Nelson and Peter Tosh.

Book a tour and experience firsthand a comprehensive collection of Leon Russell's memorabilia. You'll also have the opportunity to view various exhibits celebrating The Church Studio's past and present. Though the building is on the National Register of Historic places, The Church Studio is still a functional recording studio with top-of-the-line gear. During your visit, you just may get to peek into a live recording session.
