SECRET GENIUS ABOUT

NASHVILLE

Secret Genius Studios Nashville is a creative space located on a quiet street in the Five Points neighborhood of East Nashville. As opposed to a full recording studio or production room, the location is geared toward songwriting and work tape demos (just bring your own laptop or iPad).

The warm and airy room is chock-full of comfortable furniture, amazing snacks and coffee, vintage guitars, and creative inspiration. The space is within walking distance of restaurants and shops including BAKERY by frothy monkey, Local Taco, Far East Nashville, and Fanny’s House of Music.
