Katy Perry’s Roar


Santa Barbara has and will always be a top music hub for recording and performing hit records, from Jack Johnson to Rebelution, and of course our own home grown girl Katy Perry.

Playback Recording Studio would like to congratulate Katy Perry for her impressive string of successes on her 2013 album Prism.

Last year Perry released her newest record PRISM to immediate fanfare, topping the charts and selling over 285,000 copies in its first week.

The album’s first hit single Roar, written and recorded at Playback Recording Studio in Santa Barbara, sold 557,000 copies in its first week on sale. Katy Perry’s Roar is her highest selling single ever, even topping her massive hit Firework.

This is the second album in a row that’s included hit singles written and recorded at Playback Recording Studio with producers Max Martin and Dr. Luke at the helm. Her music videos for the singles recorded at Playback alone have a combined the sum of nearly a billion views! Katy says “Playback feels like home, and I love the vibe.”

That isn’t all that is going on at Playback Recording Studio. We have had a number of new artists come through the doors recently, and we look forward to their upcoming releases. Some of these artists include Jonathan McEuen, Bira, The Fire Department, The Oles…

In 2014 we plan on bringing a slew of new projects to the forefront of the Santa Barbara community. One of the first events we are planning will be a music showcase of the recent talent coming through the studio, with the first installment coming this spring!

Stay tuned for many more updates and exciting announcements from Playback Recording Studio.
