While the Protools hiring business was flying high, in 2002 a business opportunity in acquiring the first lot of 6 studios presented itself. In 2004 Ion Metsovitis left Air-Edel to focus on the running of the company,which over a period of 6 years accumulated the total of 30 studios.

In 2011, Ion split his original company to create Palm Recording ltd., a small and independent yet nimbler company with 14 studios at its business core.


Ions' experience stems not only from the larger and medium studios (Air Studios, Abbey Road, Air Edel) but he also graduated from the University of Westminster with a Master degree in Music Business Management in 2003.

Additionally and over the years, he has gained expertise in studio construction, which culmination came in early 2012, when he project managed the construction of the studio for award winning and multi selling producer Ian Shaw in Key West,Florida.

The future holds plans to expand the business in other areas of the music industry and the wider creative world without losing focus on the day to day requirements of the business and the clients occupying the studios.
