Chris Mara

Welcome To 1979 Studio
Chris Mara moved to Nashville in 1995 from a small town in northern Wisconsin (population 800), to pursue a career in the music industry. Mara took the traditional route from intern to apprentice recording engineer to recording engineer. Seeking a more organic way to record, Mara founded a retro, all analog recording studio in 2008, aptly named, Welcome to 1979. This time traveling adventure has spawned two other ventures, Mara Machines, which restores vintage analog tape recorders, and a vinyl mastering division at Welcome to 1979.
