Since its formation on December 3, 2007, CUSAMHF has become an active, important member of the region’s arts community. Relying on the hard work and dedication of board members and volunteers, and despite having no staff, CUSAMHF has managed to organize numerous events, raise awareness of Cincinnati’s music legacy through press coverage and grassroots organizing, and preserve local music landmarks. CUSAMHF has done this by aggressively pursuing partners in both the public and private sectors to help advance the Foundation’s mission.
In addition to the various programs and events that CUSAMHF has sponsored, the Foundation moved into and began renovating the former Herzog Studio space at 811 Race Street in 2010. From 1945 to 1955 Herzog Studio was one of the premier recording studios in the world. It is Cincinnati’s first professional recording studio, led by Earl T. Herzog, a WLW engineer who worked at Crosley Square. Preceding Nashville Row, Herzog’s operation and practices were used as a model for the first Nashville recording studios like Castle. At Herzog, Cincinnati’s first professional R&B recordings were made, along with landmarks in bluegrass and rockabilly. In 1948 and 1949, Hank Williams recorded “Lovesick Blues” and “So Lonesome I Could Cry” at Herzog. In fact, the Herzog space is the last standing structure where Hank Williams recorded professionally. In addition to Hank Williams, Patti Page, Rosemary Clooney, and early King Records artists also recorded at Herzog Studio.
