Inside Tampa's shining new Atomic Audio, plus the Bay's best recording studios




Earlier this summer, Mark Nicolich, the ears and mind behind Atomic Audio, constructed, mostly on his own, a new state-of-the-whoa, fully air-conditioned 4,100-square-foot recording studio and learning center in East Tampa. That's the Winter Haven band Pop Glow recording there, above.

With several full-service studios already in the area, the noteworthiness of Atomic's new-and-improved space has just mostly to do with Nicolich, the sort of hard-working guy local musicians want to see make good.

"I'm in a position now that I'm still young enough to do this and have the physical ability," Nicolich said.
