LOCATION – 2 miles from Florida’s Best Beach!
Hollywood has arrived on a quiet street in sunny Clearwater, Florida. Located just off the beaten track (with plenty of space surrounding the building for parking) our studios are right off Route 60 and a straight 25 minute drive from Tampa Int’l Airport. We are right next to a beautiful walk-around park, a 4.0 star Marriott Residence Inn, and minutes from Clearwater’s award-winning, white, sandy beaches.
You can get away from it all and relax into the great, creative vibe at Clear Track Studios, the “diamond in the rough”.
The area also has plenty of excitement with jet skiing, para-sailing, roller-coasters, nightlife and much more. Check it out in the 2013 Clearwater, Florida Visitor’s Guide

The word must be getting out fast since Clear Track Studios’ opening in February 2010. Almost three years later, we’re quickly becoming known as the go-to studio when searching for the best quality in Tampa Bay–with competent, friendly staff who know how to swiftly get what you need for a project.
We work with any project scenario, from Major Acts to up-and-coming independent artists, with care, efficiency and great attention to quality. We provide anything from the studio facility itself to the right producers, engineers, and session musicians who will help you get the sound for your unique project.
Clear Track’s Music Production Team involves a wide variety of noted producers and professional engineers, musicians and songwriters of varying generations and genres, including multi-platinum award winning talents. Rock, Pop, Blues, Country, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Electronic, Rap, Latin, Classical–it’s all covered!
The professionals here and the studio itself are truly “all about the music.” There’s no big corporate mentality, just decades of experience driven by a passion for making great sounding music—all culminating in 2010 with the opening of Clear Track’s Studio A.
Every aspect of the studio was decided upon and brought into place by progressive rock and blues multi-instrumentalist and head engineer, Mike Johnson. In his mid-twenties, after 8 years of studio design research, the Connecticut native met with world-renown studio designer Wes Lachot during the summer of 2008. It was then he knew he wouldn’t cut any corners, rolling up his sleeves to “do it right,” and working with Wes to design not only a full-blown, pro studio, but the best sounding room in Florida. Wes, who had just finished designing Manifold Recording (nominated for a TEC Award), approved of the perfect building and drew up the plans with Mike.
After nearly two years of blood, sweat and tears and massive attention to detail, Mike and the Clear Track team opened Studio A’s doors in February 2010 to serve Tampa Bay musicians and artists across the globe.
So far, it’s been a great success. Beautifully crafted for sonic excellence and inspiration, musicians and pro engineers alike are continually amazed at the studio’s sound creating, capturing and listening environment.
Mike and his team are passionate about making great music and getting you excellent-quality recordings. We want to see a thriving music establishment on Florida’s West Coast by helping up-and-coming and already-established artists alike have a great time making music for their listeners—at a level of quality that can truly expand a music career.
If you’d like to speak with Mike or have any questions for us, don’t hesitate to say hi!

“Everyone who works at Clear Track were completely professional, mixed in with a healthy dose of kindness and helpfulness. I got the best bass tone of my career. Spencer is a guy with a work ethic and musical ears. All in all, from a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give Clear Track an 11!”
– Jeff Berlin, legend of the electric bass
“From the first time I walked through the door and Elizabeth greeted me with a smile, to the absolute professionalism in Mike, and the incredible sounds Spencer (aka “the Fender Twin Mechanic”) captured in Studio A, I knew that Clear Track would be my home studio. Two albums down, many more to come!” – Independent artist Rex Shepherd

“The creative writing and composing, the production, the engineering was just seamless. We produced a beautiful project. I came with a limited budget and seven or eight songs that I had worked the foundations through on my iPhone. The team here pulled it off; we finished developing the concepts, writing the music, all background instruments, the sax, all within the studio and within six blocks of it at the rehearsal space. It’s all there now. It can be done! Proof is the link to the iTunes!”
- Earl Brown, Prophetic Sax
“The full staff of Clear Track was a pleasure to work with. Everyone was great and supportive to our young artist. Dan and Spence were an amazing team who recorded a wonderful song that put emphasis on Jordan’s natural talent. The studio is second to none and a world-class level. Can’t wait to record here again.”
- Christian Stolfe, MMVI Entertainment
