Come make some noise

The VNUE Lounge, tucked away in the SoDo district of Seattle, is a state of the art hybrid recording studio/venue that still feels like home. A place for intimate performances, collaboration, and storytelling – the Lively Lounge is the place to celebrate how great performance can look, sound, and feel.

Don’t take our word for it

"Easy to say that stopping by the Lively Lounge was a highlight of our most recent tour. The Lounge was professional, clean, the staff was welcoming and the sound in there was great! Adding to that, we were stoked to see the final video content and the high quality that it was."

− Kiven

"Playing at the Lively Lounge was everything an artist hopes for - great sound, great people who are fun and super accommodating, and a cool, vibey environment. For the icing on the cake? Throw in the fact that the artist has live audio and video to share with fans immediately after the show. Not only do I hope to play another show with Lively in the future, but I will be using the app to listen to and watch some of my favorite artists and to discover new music."

− Tess Henley

"Working with the Lively people has been out of this world. They knew so much about us before we even got on a phone call with them. Any ideas we threw at them; playing a private show, filming it, releasing it as an encore, filming our full show and releasing that for free, Lively was on board. That is the difference, they are company made of artists. The fact that they can do a three-camera shoot, edit the audio and video, and release it in less than a week, that is art. They aren’t afraid of new challenges, and that is why we are happy to be working on future projects with them. I would stay tuned to these guys and gals. The stuff that they are coming up with is nothing to sleep on."
