Music Production, Podcast Production and Consulting with Producer Darren Clarke.

Clarke Lane Music is Producer / Guitarist & Song Writer Darren Clarke and his wife Jessie (Lane) Clarke (also a Song Writer & Singer). Though born and raised in England, the Clarkes live and work in San Luis Obispo, California.

UPDATE: In 2015 PG&E bought the building we built our studio in, and required it be emptied out! So after 12 years in that space we have liquidized everything we could to pay off the business loan we took out to build the studio.We didn’t see that coming but we are rolling with the punches and kissed the studio goodbye.

So we are evolving and needless to say we no longer record bands or artists at Clarke Lane Studios. While we can still do some of what we’ve been doing all along (Darren has a mobile rig), our work has taken a different trajectory. Darren is now working either from home or remotely with artists or clients that don’t need a studio. Clients are hiring Darren, as opposed to Darren and his studio. Fortunately he’s secured some great gigs, but Clarke Lane Studios is no more. Thanks for all your support!
