Fifteen years ago, Jon Evans was the first producer/engineer/musician to make the space on San Pablo Avenue his musical home. In between tour dates with Tori Amos, Linda Perry, and Sarah McLachlan he recorded an assortment of bands and composed music for movies and television.
He handed the keys to renowned musician Steven Emerson, who recorded dozens of local jazz heavyweights, and engineer/producer Dale Everingham, who recorded an eclectic assortment of artists, such as E-40 and Mazzy Star here.
The studio was run by a couple of local engineers who recorded local punk and hip-hop demos after Emerson and Everingham moved on.
In 2012, engineer/producer Michael Rosen and noted musician Michael Urbano were looking for a place to work. A friend of a friend turned them on to the hidden studio, and it felt right.
