Montage of Voltage Studio Clients
The history of Voltage Studios dates back to the mid 1980’s, as ‘The Boiler Rooms’, the rehearsal section of Bradford’s Flexible Response Studios. The Little Germany premises were frequented by the likes of New Model Army, Southern Death Cult, The Danse Society, Tasmin Archer, The Christians, The Word, Bruce Foxton of The Jam, Excalibur, The March Violets and Skeletal Family. The original studio setup was known as ‘The Crystal Cave’ with our debut recording appearing on the ‘Exalted Companion’ T-Rex tribute album in 1988.

The studio then moved to a new location when Flexible Response closed. Temporarily known as ‘Revolver’, we produced demos, singles, albums and pre-production for bands such as My Dying Bride, Paradise Lost, Loud, Slammer, Harlequyn and Architect before changing name to Voltage, to be fully linked to our own Voltage Records label, also established in 1988 and distributed worldwide through PHD.

Since then Voltage has worked with many established artists, including: Duran Duran's Andy Taylor, Killing Joke's Jaz Coleman, Art Attack's Neil Buchanan & Marseille, Sam Riley & 10000 Things, Marmozets, Emmerdale's Natalie Anderson, Brookside's Steven Pinder, The Music, Dragonforce, Darren Day, Bishi, The Voice UK, Chantel McGregor, The Chuckle Brothers, Dene Michael, Billy Pearce and members of Feeder, The Housemartins, Terrorvision, T-Rex, Skunk Anansie, One Minute Silence, District 3 (X-Factor), Bosom Buddies (BGT) and many more.

The move to the current unit in 2004 enabled Voltage to improve and expand beyond anything of its kind previously in the area and remains the logical, affordable and most popular choice for musicians and performers in West Yorkshire and beyond.
