The Stereo Room, located at 521 N 1200 W in Orem, UT, has changed its name as of January 10, 2016 to Audio West Recording Studios & Event Center. Audio West and The Stereo Room are owned and operated by local producer and entrepreneur David Devaney. The Stereo Room opened its doors in November, 2014 and has hosted acts like Ryan Innes, John Allred, House of Lewis, Foreign Figures, and Richie Kissinger.
Audio West made this statement early this morning:
“The Stereo Room & Audio West have combined beginning Jan 1, 2016 and will further only be known as Audio West Recording Studios & Event Center. We felt it best to consolidate them to one cohesive name, logo, branding, social media and website. We feel it will be a more focused effort in marketing and future growth while trying to eliminate confusion in the marketplace. Thank you to everyone that has shown support in our first year at this new facility. Year two is already making giant leaps and will continue to welcome the music community around the world.” 
Audio West is an all in one music complex, built inside a large, former warehouse. Devaney told The Daily Herald, “Hey, if we’re building a new studio, let’s just make it a whole music complex. They can rehearse here, record here, and also perform here.”  The practice space is available morning, afternoon, and evening by appointment and includes floor monitors, a 24 channel mixing board, a 16×12 stage, D.I. boxes, a video projection system, and vocal mics. Shows are typically hosted at the venue on Fridays and Saturdays. In his role as a producer, Devaney has worked with The Strike, Imagine Dragons, The Blue Aces, and Neon Trees. Recording rates are $75 an hour. 
Last year, Devaney also co-hosted the Utah Music Awards, held in the Covey Center for the Arts in downtown Provo. Devaney has been an active part of the Utah Valley music scene and will continue to be so in the days to come.
