We set out to create one of the most unique and inspiring recording studios on the east coast. Built on the philosophy of a creativity-first inclusive atmosphere, we look forward to bringing your project to life.


The Studio

CAKO is a beautiful and vibrant recording studio built in a 120 year old church that boasts 20ft ceilings and 1800+ square foot live room that can accommodate projects both big and small. We utilize a “one room” studio design that allows maximum creativity and collaboration. The entirety of the sanctuary and altar are open, creative spaces. One section of the enormous live room is acoustically treated and serves as the listening/control room. We call it “The Hut”. Within the hut we can enjoy a tight, treated acoustic environment suitable for mixing and critical listening all while staying in the same space.

Our Story

We are an independently owned business located in PA’s beautiful and fast-growing Lehigh Valley. Operated by the husband and wife team Derril & Dana Sellers, Cako was created out of their passion for music, art, and film.
