Angel Studios closed.

For those of you who missed it, Angel Studios in Islington closed at the end of the year. The gear is all in perfect working order and for sale via MJQ. The studio was one of the very few that was genuinely profitable.

The studio issued the following statement -

Following the recent passing of James and Rosalind de Wolfe, we are sad to announce that the Angel Recording Studio building in London has been transferred to third parties and will therefore be closing its doors as our studio at the end of 2019. Its future beyond that date is unknown.

The limited company ‘Angel Recording Studios Limited’ will remain within the de Wolfe group of companies; de Wolfe will continue to develop and licence their music catalogues as they have done for over 100 years.

Warren de Wolfe, James's eldest son, says with heartfelt emotion: “It is a very sad day for our studio employees, the wider creative industries and for all those who have enjoyed recording music within the Angel Studio. I thank all the composers, producers and musicians who have graced the Angel Studio over the course of the past 40 years. It has been a great adventure and an honour to have worked and collaborated on so many marvellous projects in the Studio. Special thanks as well to our incredibly dedicated team.”

Our wonderful family business looks forward to remaining connected and working with all of our clients and continuing to serve the music and media community.
