Lanny Grilly- Owner/Engineer/Percussionist/Video Editor/Sound Designer

Lanny started Logan Square Recording Studio (previously known as Orchestra Hall Studio) as home studio for

personal projects 10 years ago and the business grew to
warrant the move to it's present location in Logan Square. The 
new facility was built with state-of -the-art equipment as he
felt that the incredible talent of our local musicians was underserved 
in this market. "We're just as talented as the artists in New York 
and L.A., but the big studios have abandoned Chicago."

In Lanny's other life, from which he retired this year after 
25+ years, he was responsible for shepherding multi-million 
dollar creative projects for consumer giants such as, Helene Curtis, 
Unilever, Kraft Foods, and Wal-Mart.

With his expertise as a studio drummer, he often adds drum & percussion 
tracks to sessions when clients need to "fatten-up" or fix a track.

Lanny's musical background brings a musician friendly environment 
to the sessions and he provides a comfortable atmosphere that 
encourages the best performances.
