The Studio Where Rock was Born

The birthplace of rock and roll—it’s that simple to describe what makes Sun Studio significant.

In the summer of 1954, a young, unknown truck driver picked up a guitar during a session at 706 Union Avenue and made history with his recording of “That’s All Right Mama.” Sam Philips captured the unique sound of Elvis Presley, and the unknown Memphis singer skyrocketed to fame.

And it all started at Sun, where great singers have made their mark, from Howlin’ Wolf and B.B. King to Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, and more recent artists such as U2 and Def Leppard. The studio is open daily for tours.
