Imaginary Road Studios

The Windham Hill Records legacy lives on in the mountains of Vermont where Grammy Award winner and Windham Hill Records founder Will Ackerman continues to produce award winning acoustic music.   Producer of such iconic musicians as George Winston, Michael Hedges, Liz Story and Alex de Grassi along with his own Grammy Award-winning recordings, Will now works with engineer and co-producer Tom Eaton in the creation of award-winning acoustic masterpieces.

From inside Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studios the views of Windham county’s West River valley provide inspiration to all who visit.  Built in 1993, Imaginary Road Studios has become synonymous with acoustic music of the highest caliber, and has been host to a who’s who of the instrumental music world.

From the magnificent Steinway piano to the Klaus Heyne-modified sequential pairs of Neumann microphones and Hemmingway preamps, Imaginary Road presents the very finest that technology has to offer in a state of the art facility.

Will’s unique approach to record making, with his uncanny sense of balance, space and time, continues to produce records which consistently hold positions at the top of the Zone music charts, and his dual legacies as the founder of Windham Hill Records, and as a singular musical voice, continue to draw the finest instrumental performers from around the world here, to Imaginary Road Studios.
