The Engineer and Producer
Greetings, My name is Jonathan Jaffee. I’m the owner, the Chief Engineer and Producer here at 12th Avenue Recording. Thank you for taking the time to visit our web site and for exploring the many services that we offer.
I’ve been passionate about music ever since I can remember. But, I decided to immerse myself in the business of music with my move to South Florida from New Orleans in 1996. I grew up between New York and New Orleans and as you can imagine both regions had a massive impact on my perception of Music, Art and their respective communities.
I’ve set up 4 recording studios here, in Southern Florida, over the years. And, my newest studio, 12th Avenue, is the most personal and comfortable studio, to date.
The majority of services I personally oversee tend to go beyond producing and engineering. In my experience, producing a recording or writing music, is the ultimate in personal expression. So beyond recording, editing, mixing, mastering and voice over work, I find myself consulting artists. Consultations concerning the direction of an artist’s or group’s work and pre-production is an essential and often overlooked aspect of the planning process.
I’ve had the honor of working with a variety talented artists over the years; from smaller local personal projects to national acts and television shows, including The Postmarks (Warner Bros) and Animal Planet Television Programming.
If I had to leave you with a lasting message it would be this: I have a passion for recording; forging a new and artistic legacy within the world’s music community being the ultimate goal. If you share this passion with me, I’d love to hear from you. It is my greatest hope that together we can explore and realize your dreams.
