Fall 2014

What an awesome year it’s been! First up, Jesse released the second edition of his book Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The New Music Business, and it has become the highest rated book on the music business in both the Amazon book store and the Kindle store. It has also become a textbook for music business students at half a dozen schools across the country. He also launched two podcasts one called Off The Record where him and Zack Zarrillo (Property of Zack, Jade Tree & Bad Timing Records) give advice to musicians, discuss music business and tech. The second Jesse Cannon Talks To, interviews some of today’s best minds on their creative process.

The studio has been adding some killer gear including a new Les Paul Studio, a Bogner Ecstasy and 2x 12 cab, DW Titanium snare, some ribbon mics, Earthquaker Devices pedals and a ton more. We have been lucky enough to record some great records with Somos, Knuckle Puck, 9 Lives, The Dictators, Osaka Pop Star, Crown of Thorns,  The FTW,  Syrens, Can You Keep A Secret, and tons, tons more. We also mastered some great records from Kevin Devine, Park, Knuckle Puck, LifeEaters, Mansions, Unifier, Heavyweights and many more.

We’re A Different Type Of Studio

You have probably recorded at other studios in the past, but we are different.

  1. Your Own Sound. We work with you to find a sound that is unique and your own. We fill-in the blanks when you don’t know what you want and when you do know what you want we help achieve your vision.
  2. Creative Tools To Make Your Record. With a 750 sq. ft live room 25+ drums, 15+ guitars, 25+ amps, 40+ pedals, tons of percussion instruments we have a creative environment where you can choose different tons to make your record sound great and how you want.
  3. Lasting Relationships. We make lasting relationships with musicians, if you look through our discography you see names repeat over and over again as musicians keep coming back over and over again through the years.
  4. Help And Support. Jesse knows how to promote your music, as the author of the best-selling music business book, Get More Fans: The DIY Guide To The Music Business, he offers help and advice to every band that comes through the studio on how to promote your music.
  5. Experience: Everywhere you go these days another person has put down $3,000 and bought some recording equipment. They tell you that they are going to do a great job on your record but that never seems to happen. When you record with us you are not waiting for us to learn the equipment/software. Broken and miswired equipment is never bogging down your session. You will never have to worry about us not knowing obvious answers to how to fix the million things that can go wrong in a session.
  6. Equipment: Since the beginning our philosophy has been to only stock our studio with professional quality equipment. When you look through our equipment list you can see we have a wide variety of instruments so any tone you can imagine can be made here. We have never bought into cheesy Guitar Center gimmick equipment and flavor of the month deals. We came up working in the studios that have been making your favorite records for years and learned what they use and how to use it. We have only the best vintage and modern equipment.
  7. Value: We turn out an amazing, high quality song in a timely manner that stays on budget. We try to accommodate any budget. Trust me, you can afford to record here! With many of our pricing plans, your band can be working in 2 studios at once that are stocked with top of the line equipment with experienced producers. Giving your band a chance to get a real sounding record at an insanely low price. By doing this you have the time to get professional production in very little time and or very little money.

February 2014

Hey Everyone! Tons of exciting things going on since we last updated you. First off, Jesse has been doing some really exciting stuff with the awesome company CreativeLive. If you are interested in recording check out the classes on The Fundamentals of Mixing Rock & EDM and DIY Mastering. He also did two really cool podcasts where he talked about recording and the music business with AbsolutePunk and Stuff You Will Hate

In addition to that we’ve been doing some really good records. Save Face, Americans UK, Joyride, The Ride Down, Streetz on Fire, Have A Good Season, Kenya and tons more. Mastering records for bands like Sheer Terror, Unifier, She’s Alive, Shoots and Ladders, Valencia, and tons more.

One of the best records we did last year was with a fantastic groups called Somos. Pitchfork is loving their new record and so do we. If you like melodic, proggy punk with a smart lyrical edge you would be a fool to not check out this record.

We got to do a great song with one of our favorite artists Rooky and get to work with the legend DMC of Run DMC.


We did two great songs with the fantastic pop group LovElectric. Check them out below.

We did a great record of 90′s rock influenced jams with Patterns & Waves. I really love this record.

You want to hear a hilarious pop punk song. Great! Nobody Does This has one for you right here -

We did a really poppy punk record with the great NJ dudes The Stolen.

If you love your punk a little weird with politically charged lyrics I cannot recommend this great record enough that we did with The Strange Times.

Check out Strongwater’s fantastic punk EP
