Unique Signs Surround Memphis’ Sun Studio

Distinct signage marks the “Birthplace of Rock’n’roll.”




Sun Studio

When an 18-year-old Elvis Presley walked through these doors in 1953, he started a chain reaction that transformed music forever. Now known worldwide as the “Birthplace of Rock’n’roll,” Sun Studio, (Memphis, TN), was also home to artists such as B.B. King, Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison.
