Rich Bitch Studios has been in the heart of the Birmingham music industry for over the last 30 years. Rob and Linda first set up a one rehearsal room in a basement in Selly Oak where their own band - “Rich Bitch” used to rehearse. Other bands in the area got to hear about the rehearsal room space and asked if they could use it when the Rich Bitch Band were not using it.
After that the rest is history. Rich Bitch Studios relocated in 1983 to an old engineering factory on the Bristol Road.
The recording studio was the first room to be developed. After that rehearsal rooms were built enabling more and more local bands to rehearse and record their music.
Rich Bitch Studios has been proud to have provided a music service to Black Sabbath, Pato Banton, The Vamps, Steel Pulse, Connecting Roots, Steve Gibbons, ELO, Ruby Turner, The Editors, Raymond Froggatt, Earth Wind and Fire, Slade, Roy Wood, Robert Plant, Joe Brown, Sam Brown, The Wonderstuff, Pop Will Eat Itself, Beshara, Ned’s Atomic Dustbin, Napalm Death, John Barryman, Jamie Oliver EMF, Vanessa Mae, Casino, Inspiral Carpets, Joanne Shaw Taylor and Skid Row from the U.S.A. Rich Bitch aimed to serve the local and international music community. It continues to be the musical platform for aspiring and up and coming musicians.
