Are you a musician, singer/songwriter, voice talent or band looking to record a song, podcast, voice over work, an EP or full-length CD/album?  Need some tracks mixed?  The Temple of Tuneage is the professional, but affordable answer for your next recording project.


Originally set up as the personal production studio for producer and bassist Gerry Griffin, the "Temple" is geared up to create big-budget quality productions in a relaxed and comfortable setting.  The Temple is a “hybrid” studio, combining a collection of vintage analog equipment and a Pro Tools 12 digital audio workstation.  The foundation of the Temple’s sound is its vintage 16-channel Neve 5462 mixer plus a nice collection of outboard gear and microphones.  The addition of a UA Apollo 16 & Apollo x8 interfaces and all the amazing plug-ins designed for the UAD-2 system, gives the Temple a wonderful collection of vintage equipment emulations to make your recording project the best it can be!


If you are interested in bringing your next project to the Temple, please send us an email:


Gerry has recorded or produced tracks for many local artists including legendary NYC rockers the Dictators, Trojan Warfare, Midnight Mess, The Mutts, Rachel Butera (Howard Stern voice over pro), Zydeco Revelators, Rockstar Racecar, Jimmy Cowan, Ray Gehringer, Al Festa, By George!, Black Water, Terry McCarthy, Jack Rio Trio, the Porchistas, Mary Remington, Dubious Pastry, Sexy Heroes, ALIEN SLAVES, Miss Lucy & Walker Blue, The Meltdowns, Baked Fresh Daily, J4Jennifer and Times Squared.
