Glass Bottom Studios began as McConnell Studios, a business partnership of founders Keith McConnell and Doug Clark in the early 1990s. They started it as a hobby studio to produce recordings for themselves, friends and local musicians. Both founders were systems/software engineers with large companies by day, but also talented musicians, and they found a creative outlet in the studio.
When Keith’s career led him to relocate to California, Doug continued the studio in NJ, renaming it Coast to Coast Studios. In this period, Doug expanded the technical assets of the studio, to record his original material (see http://www.glassbottommusic.com/), and to produce demo recordings for local musicians. He also began doing live recording for a growing list of customers, including the Rutgers University Queen’s Chorale, The Point Pleasant Presbyterian Church, The Monmouth Conservatory of Music, The New Jersey Chamber Singers, Kinnara, The Red Bank Chamber Music Society, and several area musicians.
Coast to Coast Studios changed its name to Glass Bottom Studios in 2010.
