Our Story

Hermosa Sound Lab is a professional recording studio providing audio recording, mixing, mastering, live sound, production sound and stage rental services in the coastal community of Hermosa Beach, California.

Founded in 2024 by Alex Lockwood, our studio offers over a decade of audio engineering experience in a creative, comfortable, and collaborative environment. Alex got his start with Studio 637 in 2014 and acquired ownership of the company in 2017. He has had the unique opportunity to operate from the same location for a decade. The building has undergone a full renovation and has continually updated gear to stay at the forefront of the industry. Just blocks from the beach, Hermosa Sound Lab has worked with independent artists, record labels, filmmakers, voice over talent, bands, and clients throughout Southern California.

Alex and our team are passionate about sound and dedicated to realizing our clients’ creative visions. We continually invest in the latest audio gear and software as technology progresses to deliver high-quality products across all our service offerings.

Hermosa Sound Lab embraces a laid back and welcoming vibe while maintaining a professional workflow and attention to detail. Contact us today to start your next project.
