About New Frontier Recording Studio

studio logo

Nestling in the village of Jonesborough in Co. Down, just on the border with Co. Louth, is NEW FRONTIER, a little recording studio with character and charm. Here at NEW FRONTIER, we welcome all artists, but particularly new and up-and-coming artists, and we invite you to record here at times that will suit your busy schedule. We offer really attractive rates, and all-in package deals that will suit your pocket, because we know that artists starting out have to work to a tight budget. We've all been there, and that's why NEW FRONTIER aims to produce a quality product to showcase your talent without 'getting the arm in'! So, if you are thinking about getting your tracks down sure to talk to us first.

Just give us a ring and talk to Paddy, who will be only too pleased to help you plan your project. We are affordable, flexible and friendly, and you can be assured of a professional service from start to finish!

Cover Artwork


We can handle all of your artwork for you, or you can use your own, whichever you prefer. We can help recommend local printers and web designers to help with the promotion of your product. At the end of the day, we're here to help get your product out there!

CD Pressing


We can offer you a CD pressing service at competitive prices, or we can hand you the Master if you prefer to source your own manufacturing plant. We can also master your tracks to mp3 or any other format you wish - handy for selling online!



We can produce your sessions for you, or if you have someone in mind for the job, our in-house engineer can work with that person on your sessions. We also have a team of seasoned session musicians on call if you would prefer to book them for your session(s).



Thinking of selling online? We work in conjunction with NI Web Solutions, a local web design company with a lot of experience in the entertainment industry, who can help you sell online, or design a website, with song download facilities, for you at a competitive price.
