Eddi Fiegel of Sound On Sound Magazine interviews Cinderella Sound founder, Wayne Moss.
Fifty years ago, Wayne Moss created a studio in his Nashville garage. And while big‑money, purpose‑built complexes have come and gone, Cinderella Sound still thrives today… The studio in question is in fact Cinderella Sound, tucked away in a hard‑to‑find, semi‑rural, residential area on the outskirts of Nashville, full of clapperboard houses with open porches. Housed in what was originally a two‑car garage, with a vocal booth in a minuscule bathroom converted from a coal cellar, Cinderella couldn’t be in starker contrast to the corporate, office‑block‑style studios of Nashville’s Music Row. Nashville’s oldest surviving independent studio, Cinderella was started in 1961 by virtuoso guitarist Wayne Moss, whose impressive session credits include Roy Orbison’s ‘Pretty Woman’ and Bob Dylan’s Blonde On Blonde album (the distinctive jangle guitar line on ‘I Want You’ is his), amongst many others.
