History

Solar Audio & Recording Limited was a recording studio founded by Russ Brannon in 1975. The studio operated on Wyse Road in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia and then on Hunter Street in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The company recorded hundreds of musicians and musical groups and, in the 1990s, moved into post audio for film and television productions. Solar Audio was not a record label, but the studio's name was used by many artists who self-released records that were recorded and mixed at the studio.

In 1986, Solar Audio & Recording Limited was sued by Sound Images, Incorporated, a recording studio based in Cincinnati, Ohio. Sound Images purchased a sound console from Solar Audio and sued the company in the Supreme Court of Nova Scotia when the console could not be installed as planned. Associate Chief Justice Ian H. M. Palmeter dismissed the charges after concluding that "something happened to the console after the time it was shipped by Solar to Cincinnati."
