HISTORY OF THE STUDIO
J Street Recorders represents the vision of Brian Wheat, bassist of the multi-platinum rock group Tesla. Both Brian’s and the band’s roots are deeply seated in Sacramento.
A veteran of many recording sessions himself, Brian wanted to create a hometown-based opportunity for musicians of all kinds, a premiere studio that offered all the bells and whistles but was a part of the community as well.
“I wanted to create an environment where musicians felt at home, and felt comfortable both creatively and technically,” says Brian.
In 2004, Brian’s dream was realized and J Street Recorders opened its doors – creating a welcome change in Sacramento’s recording landscape. This premiere studio created projects for a range of clients for six years, until a fire temporarily suspended operations.
With a rare second chance to execute his dream, Brian engaged a world-class designer to create an even better, purpose-built studio in a different location. Once again, Brian Wheat’s vision for a great place to make music has become reality.
More than a decade after its inception, J Street Recorders continues to fulfill its mission of providing an artist-friendly recording environment backed by a highly skilled staff.
