Enter Love and Letters Studios and Sing

Love and Letters Studios officially opened Jun 1998, though technically existing since 1996 (and as Rusty's House Studios since 1990). It began in a room in Rusty's apartment in Hattiesburg Mississippi, then relocated a few blocks down to a room in Rusty's house, then to an apartment in Edinburg Texas, then to a house in Auburn, AL, and now to the Imaginorium in Auburn, AL.  Sometimes it jumps around to other places, too--parts of it are portable. Love and Letters Studios is used for Love and Letters albums, 'nikcuS Productions, other people's musical projects, and anything else that comes up. It's very cozy with lots of books, sitting areas, and CDs to enjoy.
