Cedar Street Studios, founded in 2006 by musician/producer/engineer Ted Richardson (Oh My God, Chiddy Bang, Portugal The Man), is located in the Port Richmond area of Philadelphia, PA. Residing on the third floor of the century old Atlas Building, it was formerly a casket factory, complete with casket conveyor belt and manual elevator still in use today. With it’s lofty ceilings, spacious rooms, and large windows that endlessly invite in natural daylight, Cedar Street offers the artist an opportunity to concentrate on their craft, not their ‘work’. We invite you to come in for a visit any time.

An open format room, the main 2000 square foot studio allows the artist to be in direct contact with the producer and engineer. The diverse selection of instruments, amplification and other gear combine with the amazing natural sound of the room to allow an artist to find the perfect sound for any style. Richardson is at hand, at the board, to offer his assistance to the artist at every step of the creative experience. As a musician and multi-instrumentalist who was mentored under Shelly Yakus (John Lennon, Tom Petty, U2) and Artie Kornfeld (co-creator of Woodstock, Capitol Records, writer, producer), he has the proficiency to understand what the artist is ‘going’ for. With a deep comprehension of voice, guitar, bass, drums, percussion, piano, and electronic instruments, he can help the artist exceed their expectations. Says Yakus, a frequent collaborating engineer and producer…

“Cedar Street provides the perfect opportunity for anyone, regardless of budget, style or other factors, to realize their full potential and create their masterpiece both creatively and sonically”.
