Funky Lizard Studios is a multitrack digital recording studio in Newcastle NSW Australia, owned and operated by multi-instrumentalist and Producer Robbie Long.


The studio is 'petite boutique' - large enough to manage full live band recordings, small enough not to intimidate or break the budget, and boasts an array of A Class recording equipment including classic industry standard Mics & Preamps from Neumann, AKG, Sennheiser, Avalon, API, Universal Audio, Telefunken, Joe Meek, Electrovoice, Shure etc.


The studio produces artists across a wide range of projects and musical styles - from Folk to Funk, Rockabilly to Jazz, Country to Classical. The studio's speciality however, is producing singer-songwriters - providing help with multiple instruments (including guitars, drums, bass, lapsteel, dobro, mandolin, keyboards, percussion) arrangements & full production from start to finish.
