Haggard Studios South - The Story Behind the Scene
Jimmy Haggard is the founder of Haggard Studios. Jimmy travelled around the United
States' West Coast and Midwest, lived in Los Angeles California for
over 20 years, and finally landed in Raleigh North Carolina, playing
in clubs, honky-tonks, dive bars, juke joints, roadhouses, grange
halls, community halls and festivals along the way.
to the Triangle and checking out the music scene, it did not take
long for Jimmy to learn about the shortage of options for quality rehearsal
studios and affordable recording studios in the Triangle. That was
the beginning of the idea.
In 2015, Kevin Wilson became the
owner of Haggard Studios. Kevin wanted to continue to use the
name Haggard Studios South to honor what the founder started. With
Kevin's vision, the former recording studio transformed into a
Showcase Studio, still offering audio recording, while adding live
performance video services.
Kevin Wilson is an
internationally recognized guitarist and music educator. With more
than thirty-five years of experience in gospel, jazz, and rhythm and
blues, his gift allows him to transcend all contemporary music
genres of today.
Whether playing in-studio as a session
guitarist, providing production input for live band sessions,
mentoring guitar students across the globe, or providing private
guitar instruction to high profile artists, Kevin gives his heart
and passion to all of it.
Haggard Studios South is located in north Raleigh, only 10 minutes
from downtown Raleigh, 10 minutes from Wake Forest, and 20-25 minutes from Durham,
south Raleigh, and west Raleigh.
