Bad Animals Studios

Now known as Studio X, but previously known as both Bad Animals Studio and Kaye-Smith Studios. 

From 1991 until 1997, sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson of  Heart owned the studio along with Steve Lawson, the owner of Kaye-Smith and named it Bad Animals after Heart’s 1987 album of the same name. In 1997 the sisters sold their part of the ownership back to Steve who renamed it Studio X.
