Our Story

One of Music’s Great Stories…


Trackd is not just your average music app thrown together by some cool guys and girls to a corporate brief -- it is built by musicians for musicians on the back of a powerful musical story.


In 1968, British brothers Norman and Barry Sheffield opened Trident Studios at St. Anne’s Court, Soho. The studio was always at the pinnacle of recording tech and very soon attracted the big-hitting stars of the time. You know, artists like The Beatles, David Bowie, The Rolling Stones, Queen & Elton John to drop but a few names.


What the original studio stood for and achieved inspired us to do something that matters to music. Trackd was born at SXSW a couple of years ago in a fateful meeting over a taco, and we carry the heart and soul of the original studio with us into today’s musical universe. Read about Norman and his life with Trident Studios here. Follow our blog for more stories about Trackd as we go.
