Small But Packs a Punch

Big Things Come in Little Packages

Rivelakes Music is a home studio and practice room located in Bakersfield, California, owned and operated by Ernie Lewis, a singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, and recording engineer who has been professionally active in the music field for nearly 50 years. Currently, he retired from public teaching after providing 28 years of service. His next step involved jumping in head first again in the music business. Prior to teaching publicly, he worked at music stores in Bakersfield, California, where he sold and repaired instruments and provided private music lessons to the masses.  Ernie is currently in Johnny Owens and the Bakersfield Sound.  Johnny is Buck Owens' youngest son.  He and the band help keep the Bakersfield Sound alive at Buck Owens' Crystal Palace and has done so since 2015. 

Riverlakes Music prides itself in quality, and although the studio is small is size, it is big in heart and massive in dedication. Providing top quality service is number one.
