About Perle Studio

Perle studio is a recording studio, creative space, and record label founded by musicians Joe Tatton and Aoife Hearty.

Based in the beautiful Peak District countryside, Perle Studio was built during lockdown and the vision was to create an inspiring retreat for crafting music and art.
