American Artists Management Studio

430 Oak Grove Street

Where Prince polishes his production skills

This location served as the office and studio owned by Owen Husney, a local musician and producer. In 1976, Chris Moon introduced Prince to Husney, who was blown away by Prince’s talent, and became the musician's manager and mentor. Prince, André Cymone, and drummer Bobby Rivkin (later known as Bobby Z) recorded eight instrumental songs here—often referred to as the “Loring Park Sessions”—which helped Prince familiarize himself with recording techniques and prepared him to move on to more professional settings. Now apartments, the spaces were recently commemorated for their significance in Prince's career.
