Based in a century old farmhouse overlooking Northumberland Strait in Prince Edward Island, Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions has produced more than 100 new recordings by Island artists since 1992 in the PEI recording studio.
World class artists from the Charlottetown Festival, Stephanie Cadman and Julain Molnar, recorded their solo CDs in the parlour at Guernsey Cove.
Doug Riley, Canada's "Dr. Music", used our mobile services to record a piano collection of Jazz Hymns on location at his home in Little Pond, Prince Edward Island. The studio is very proud to have added to Doug's legacy before his untimely passing in August 2007.
Here at Guernsey Cove Parlour, we're committed to delivering recording studio results above and beyond expectations. We believe our clients will back that up!

A studio highlight was recording the anthem for the Special Olympics Winter Games which took place in Charlottetown in 2004. The recording used a total of 76 instrumental and vocal tracks to produce.
"Just Watch Me / Je m'envole" (composed by Gordon Belsher with French lyrics by Réal Pelletier) featured vocals by Savannah Belsher and Réal Pelletier, with major contributions from Richard Wood on fiddle, Brad Fremlin on percussion, and Timothy Cummings on the highland bagpipes. The song was performed at the opening gala which was broadcast live on the TSN TV channel.

At the heart of Guernsey Cove Parlour Productions PEI studio is recording artist/engineer Gordon Belsher. With several years of performing and recording experience, Gordon has developed an exceptional ability to capture the very best work of both beginner and veteran artists alike.
"We pride ourselves on being a professional facility for the more experienced performer as well as a welcoming experience for budding artists.
We've been pleased with the quality of the productions coming out of our PEI recording studio, but much of the credit lies with the very talented performers we've worked with.
It's really satisfying to have an artist happy with their recording experience, and looking forward to the next production!"
Gordon and his wife, Charlene, became well known throughout the region as the founding members of the Island group "Jar O' Comfort" back in 1978. (Charlene now operates The Old General Store in Murray River.)
Since 1995, Gordon has toured across Canada and around the world with Island fiddling dynamo Richard Wood. For the past several years, he has also been performing and touring regularly with Cynthia MacLeod.
