When people think of music, the first places that come to mind most often are Nashville, Atlanta, New York City, and LA but the truth is, Fayetteville has the names and talent to be listed among those cities.
Nestled in the heart of the city in a log cabin at 2770 Breezewood Ave, is Cabin Fever Studio Productions, a full-service recording studio named perfectly during the pandemic.
“We are located in a log cabin…The cabin fever thing was during COVID. When everyone was saying, yeah I have cabin fever…So it all just came together,” said founder and owner, Lynne O’Quinn.
“Creating REAL music with REAL musicians” is not only the mission of the studio but the driving unique quality that makes this studio a must-visit for up-and-coming artists and established artists alike.
Cabin Fever Studio Productions provides clients with the latest technology while also holding the tradition of analog recording. Musicians who choose to record at the studio have access to large rooms, able to accommodate bands of various sizes for recording.
Artists who would like to have live instruments played can also book a musician through the studio. This includes everything from drums and bass to backup vocals. Cabin Fever Studio Productions is also in the business of securing music rights for its clients and offers remixing and mastering services.
Cabin Fever Studio Productions was founded four years ago by Lynne O’Quinn, a local award-winning musician. A 30-year industry alum, O’Quinn has had a successful music and music management career.
2024 is bringing in some new names to the studio. According to O’Quinn, the most exciting thing currently happening with the studio is the acquisition of a new Vice President, world-renowned and award-winning bassist Andy McKinney.
For those who are classic rock or country music fans, that name brings up memories of riffs and favorite songs. McKinney has been in the music industry for over two decades, with a resume to match.
McKinney was a songwriter, bassist, and backup vocalist for Molly Hatcher and the 90’s classic rock band, Barrage, where he was lead vocalist.
His experience with the most seasoned in the business doesn’t stop there. He has played for Charlie Daniels, Marshall Tucker, Nick Carter (Backstreet Boys), North Carolina’s own James Taylor (Boston, he’s ours), Vince Neil of Motley Crue, and David Bowie. His talent goes well beyond instruments, his voice, and his ability to write, as he has been the stage manager for headliners such as Rod Stewart, KISS, and Panic! at the Disco.
With performances and collaborations such as these, it’s no surprise that Andy was inducted into the Southern Rock Hall of Fame in Macon, Georgia.
His iconic purple bass (Prince wasn’t the only one) can be viewed at the Atlanta Hard Rock Cafe. He’s also graced the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine and has been named Europe's #1 Bassist, for two years running.
McKinney is excited to bring his experience and talent to Cabin Fever Studio Productions to help elevate local artists and continue to put Fayetteville on the map in the music scene.
O’Quinn and McKinney are headed to the Carolina Country Music Awards later this month in a big way. McKinney is not presenting an award this year, but he is due to accept one of the award's biggest accolades, the Gold Medal. This award goes to musicians who have made an impact in the music industry and continue to do so.
