The Studio

Moonstone Studios was originally set up in 1994, by Dave Bankhead, with its primary aim as a resource for Christian musicians and worship leaders, and for the making of professional quality worship albums.

Since 2001, it has undergone several major changes, and now has many state-of-the-art equipment additions (see equipment list)

For some time, it has been used by a wide range of Christian organisations and individual worship leaders based in the U.K.

As the ministry of We Are One! has developed, the studio is being increasingly used as a resource to foster and encourage the worship cultures of other much less affluent countries.

List of Clients

A full list of worship albums made at Moonstone Studios would be too long to include here; instead here are the names of some of the Christian organisations and record companies that have put the studio to good use at some time or other:

  • ALLIANCE MUSIC
  • ICHTHUS FAMILY WORSHIP (All FW Albums)
  • KEVIN MAYHEW PUBLICATIONS (WORLD WIDE WORSHIP)
  • KINGSWAY MUSIC
  • NEXUS CHRISTIAN MUSIC ACADEMY, COVENTRY
  • (YOUTH FOR CHRIST Affiliated)
  • OUT OF THE ARK (Childrens Educational Resources)
  • TEAR FUND (Radio promotional music tracks, reports and interviews)
  • THE BIBLE SOCIETY (various video soundtracks)

A number of individuals have also used the studio facilities extensively for major projects.

If you are a worship leader, recording artist, or Christian musician with an upcoming project in mind, do feel free to e-mail or contact us direct at the studio!
