JAMBOX Recording Studios had it’s humble beginnings in the Sound View area of The Bronx. The company was started by Lee Evans in 1980 as a 4 track recording studio in a small 1 bedroom basement apartment. Says Evans about the origin of the studio’s name: “It was always tight and hot as heck down there. Guys would say it felt (and smelled) like a sweatbox but man… we used to jam!” The word about JAMBOX’s quality and abilities soon got around and started attracting many recording artists, indie labels and even a couple of majors. In 1989, JAMBOX Recording Studios relocated to the East Village and started to grow much more due to the new convenient location. Years later in 1998, JAMBOX outgrew it’s current location and relocated to midtown Manhattan, expanding into a three room recording facility and broadening its services, officially becoming JAMBOX Entertainment. Today, JAMBOX’s client list is in the thousands. We worked with many labels, companies and artists, and have over 30 years of experience beneath the belt.
