Episode 1  “Sidewalks of New York”


Inspired Collaborations

We gave Merrill Garbus of Tune-Yards and GRAMMY-winner Chris Thile of Punch Brothers just four hours to record a song on Spire Studio. No prep time. No rehearsal. No arsenal of gear. Just admiration for each other’s craft, their instruments, and Spire.

Watch Merrill and Chris record their soulful rendition of "Sidewalks of New York," an ode to life in the city that's tinged with danger and mystery.

One-touch, pro-quality recording

Kill the setup time, not the momentum.


Ditch the setup

Merrill Garbus’ favorite Spire Studio feature? The Soundcheck button that sets recording levels for her.


2 inputs and headphone jacks

Piano, mandolin, drums—Merrill, Chris, and Spire Studio capture them all.
