WELCOME TO COLDBROOK PRODUCTIONS

An intimate recording environment for singer/songwriters, small groups and instrumentalists

Just minutes from the center of Woodstock, a private recording facility sits on green and peaceful grounds amidst the lush woods of the Catskill mountains.

The recording studio, equipped with Pro Tools HD, provides a comfortable, intimate space for acoustic recording. Singer/songwriters, small ensembles and instrumentalists have crafted their projects here with production assistance and engineering skills provided by Julie Last.

Julie Last has been active in the music business for over twenty years. Starting at the Record Plant in New York, she assisted on some of the seminal albums of the 70’s and early 80’s. After moving to Los Angeles, Julie engineered projects for  Rickie Lee Jones, Shawn Colvin and  many others. In 2000, she moved to Woodstock, drawn to a community of artists who are passionately nurturing their work and thriving outside the traditional record company system. Coldbrook Productions exists to explore and manifest an artist’s unique vision in a beautiful and creative environment.
