ABOUT

Josh Rawlings’ Kingston (Home) Studio is just 10 minutes from the Edmonds/Kingston & Seattle/Kingston (Passenger) Ferry Lines. Nestled back in the Jefferson Beach neighborhood (down the Kitsap Peninsula Coast line along the Puget Sound), the studio is a refuge/retreat from the hustle and bustle of City speeds and demands. It’s a place of chill, tranquilo, creative cultivation, natural nourishment, spaciousness, tree-houses, bonfires, well-being and simplicity. All the things we ought to have top-of-mind and our lists as life right? Josh and Emily Rawlings purchased their home here for all these reasons above. Moving their family from Seattle to a slower pace of life (while still feeling connected to many of their important relationships and balancing their careers), proved to be one of the best choices of their lives.

The studio itself is setup in a space that was essentially renovated into a single studio rental/dwelling by the previous owners. Now the space has been remodeled to house a guest in one of the rooms (see picture above), and write/record in the main console room next to it. Plans are in place to build a iso-booth for vocals and acoustic instrumentation in the corner, but for now Josh has setup a functional “Swiss Army Knife” style utility space optimal for recording live instruments/vocals piece by piece and/or going direct into the board. It’s cozy and it’s a wonderful space to great creative!
