We often say that survival is the first measure of success, and when your company has been around for 3 decades and still going strong, that is worth some recognition. The Annex Studios dates back to the golden age of the Bay Area Production scene, and back then was known as the Music Annex. Their Menlo Park Studio had a sterling reputation and attracted record labels such as Windham Hill and SUGO Music. Well-known artists such as Will Ackerman, Michael Hedges, George Winston Alex deGrassi and many others called this studio home.
Though San Francisco was still considered the major hub for the area, the Menlo location turned out to have benefits. Situated about half way between San Francisco and San Jose meant they were able to attract a unique blend of music and corporate / advertising clients.
Over the years the Annex has been working on the cutting edge of new technologies and continues working with forward thinking people, companies, and technologies. Their current services embrace a wide range of possibilities from audio production and recording, to media acquisition, configuring, archiving and duplication. You have to believe that over 30 years these guys have seen it all. Award winning radio spots, multimedia presentations, Script Development, Talent Auditioning Audio Recording…the list goes on.
Russell and his team of professional engineers and support staff provide a comfortable and creative environment that ensures high quality results. From their very earliest days they have embraced the idea the clients are more than a random bunch of folks that help pay the bills, no, they are part of an extended family. It’s through a common bond of the love of music and creative endeavors, and building short term and long term relationships with a common goal, is what helps make this place special.
Now located in San Mateo, The Annex continues a long tradition of audio production and post-production services. They also offer video services to compliment a growing demand for acquisition and presentation of musical performances, auditions, press kits and more. So we like these guys and think you will too. Give them a shout sometime and see how they might be able to assist with your next project.
