Firehouse 12 is an award-winning bar, world-class recording studio and unusually intimate performance space located in New Haven's historic Ninth Square District. The local media has called it "a steamy source of bold new music" (Owen McNally, Hartford Courant), noting both its "astutely stylish, updated-classic aesthetic" (Hugh Elton, New Haven Advocate) and its dedicated fan base of "people who bring near-religious reverence to the music, producing an exchange of energy that often fires great performances" (Regina DeAngelo, New Haven Independent). Beginning this April, Firehouse 12 will also begin issuing a mix of physical and digital-only recordings under the banner of its new label, Firehouse 12 Records, including music recorded live during recent performances.
