Long Island Studios
The Ultimate Experience.

When Long Island native Wil Freebody came to Kentucky 40 years ago he immediately knew Kentucky would be his home. What started as a humble music studio with a handful of students has grown into the only licensed audio video recording school in the State. The school campus is home to a modern, spacious, recording studio featuring a 48 channel Audient analog console with Pro Tools HD recording, The video studio features HD recording through a Sony digital console and houses a full functioning concert stage, green screen, and lighting… great for live multi-camera video productions. While facilities and equipment are important, anyone familiar with the company will tell you, the driving force behind the LIRCO success story has been Mr. Freebody’s dedication to his community, and his tireless devotion to the success of his students, customers, and employees. Qualities that can’t be recorded but can make a difference in the end. Thank you for visiting our website. Please look around and enjoy.

Top of the line musicians for hire


“Live” players vs. studio musicians…there is a difference! The nuances of playing in the studio are completely different than playing in a live situation. Session players understand the studio environment were every aspect of your sound can be put under a microscope. Great live players do not always make good session players and vice versa. Those musicians that can do both take a different approach when in the studio. Good session players get it done and get it done quickly with great results thus saving the customer time and money in the long run. If you want your project to sound like “The Real Thing” use session players! LIRCo has a network of players from around the country, we can match the best musicians to your style of music. We have several musicians capable of recording multiple parts. For example, a keyboard player can record drums, bass, piano, and organ, then you add guitars and vocals. This is great for giving your demos a full band sound on a budget.

There are several mantras associated with the LIRCo Complex, first and foremost is “We always do our best”. That starts with preparation. The crew is always prepared…”It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark”. -Unknown

Commitment to follow through…”Those who are blessed with the most talent don’t necessarily outperform everyone else. It’s the people with follow-through who excel.” – Unknown

Overcoming failure: “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. Twenty-six times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.” —Michael Jordan

Innovation: “If I had asked people what they wanted, they would have said faster horses.” – Henry Ford
