The iconic shoe brand opens its new recording studio in Brooklyn's hipest neighborhood and all musicians are invited.

The long awaited opening of Rubber Tracks, a Converse-sponsored music studio where musicians can record for free, has finally come. Five lucky bands from New York City have already signed up to use the space, and the list is growing.

The facility, located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, is stocked with instruments, recording software and equipment. There’s an editing studio, a practice stage and even a sound engineer on site to help you with your session.

Studio time at a professional space like this would normally cost thousands of dollars, an amount that most emerging musicians struggle to afford. But Converse sees Rubber Tracks as a way to give back to a community that has been wearing Chuck Taylors throughout its history.
