What is Red Feather?

Red Feather is a group of passionate students who love high-quality independent music and want to facilitate in its creation. Red Feather was founded around 2013-2014 by Wesleyan alums Ismael Coleman (’15),  Mikah Feldman-Stein (’16), Ron Jacobs (’16), David Stouck (’15) and Derek Sturman (’16).

Where is the studio located?

The studio is located in the basement of the University Organizing Center (U.O.C.) on 190 High Street. If you can’t find the U.O.C., we’re across the street from Alpha Delt and next to the building formerly known as Eclectic. If you’ve found the building but can’t find the studio, we’re under the staircase.

How do I book a session?

Easy! Just fill out this form and do the following:

  • Fill in your / your band’s information (members, equipment needs, etc.);
  • List all of your availabilities for the week (please list multiple time slots);
  • Submit your request by noon the Sunday before the week you wish to work.

We will then match you / your band with an engineer and a confirmation email will go out confirming your studio time for the week.

What can I record?

Anything. Seriously, anything.

  • Have a band? Play it live or mix it later.
  • Rapper? Make beats in the studio or bring your own.
  • Wrote a musical? Record it for anyone to listen.
  • In an a Capella group? This one should be obvious.
  • Creating a podcast? Our recording studio is comfortable for several people to sit and chat.
  • Interviewing someone? Make it sound perfect.
  • Slam poet or other? Share your voices the way they’re meant to be heard.
  • Soothing voice? Narrate an audiobook!
