Why Louisiana?

A Deep, Rich History and Vibrant Business Environment Sets the Foundation for Success in the Music Industry

Louisiana is known as the birthplace of Jazz and is home to numerous Grammy award winners and nominees: past, present and future. The state’s renowned creative culture has nurtured legendary recordings artists — including Dr. John, Sean Ardoin, Rebirth Brass Jazz Band, Kenny Neal, Givers, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Terrance Simien, James Booker, Percy Sledge, John Fred, Jerry Lee Lewis, PJ Morton, Harry Connick, Jr., Jon Batiste — and even inspired entire genres like swamp pop and zydeco. State-of-the-art recording studios, a unique production rebate and highly skilled studio musicians and engineers create an unrivaled opportunity for success in sound recording in Louisiana.

Since the launch of the music incentive program, the state’s already-established production industry has grown at a rapid pace. New and expanding recording studios and world-class musicians, engineers and other recording industry professionals now call Louisiana home.

Complementing the film industry in Louisiana, film scoring is quickly becoming an important part of the music production mix in the state.

“It was great recording my album Goin’ Home in my hometown at Blade Studios in Shreveport. North Louisiana now has a world-class recording studio that exists in part as a result of the various incentives Louisiana has for our industry, including the Sound Recording Investors Tax Credit. In a world of shrinking recording budgets, Louisiana has led the way in creating incentives for artists to come and work in our state.”
