Metalworks Studio is the longest running studio in Canada, founded in 1978 by Gil Moore. Moore, the drummer of the award winning band Triumph, has led the company to success, with the addition of Metalworks Institute, an accredited school training students in music production and engineering. Metalworks has also grown in the direction of live event production, under the title of Metalworks Production Group. Metalworks Studio though, continues to lead Moore’s career. With six studios, Metalworks Studio has recorded many international hit artists like David Bowie, Guns N’Roses, ‘N Sync, and Prince. They have also worked with many successful Canadian artists like Alexisonfire, Anne Murray, Drake, and Nelly Furtado. Many of these albums have been Gold and Platinum Certified.
The studio has been recognized for their talents, winning Canada’s Studio of the Year 17 times at the CMW Canadian Music Industry Awards.
