Forget all that traditional studio shit, and fuck all the gear... I’m bout to take this whole game and turn this muthafucker inside-out. Ya feel me ? Yeah, you gonna feel me.
— Chris Theberge, Founder

Musician-entrepreneur Chris Theberge is a Grammy-nominated recording artist with 20 years of music industry experience, a background in marketing/finance, and a love of ancient culture and modern technology.

He started out playing drums in his teens in Santiago, Chile and then later, in NYC, he joined a college friend starting a music marketing firm, while gigging on the side and working as a radio DJ and music writer. In the 90's Chris became a founding member of the jazz/funk group Groove Collective, releasing albums on Warner, Universal, Savoy and doing extensive touring.  Those gigs, along with his drum research led him across the globe to locales and festivals in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Nigeria, Montreaux Jazz, North Sea & JVC Jazz Festivals, Red Rocks, WOMAD, Mount Fuji, Newport Jazz/Madarao and Moscow.  Later, settling down in Englewood New Jersey to build a family, Chris founded Music Works in Manhattan in 2010 to create a space to collaborate with other artists.  Now the studio is thriving with talent, both known and developing, and Chris is setting his sights on performing, producing and helping others to navigate the music industry.

These young bucks don’t know shit about production, any punk can make a beat. They think the game is a joke, but they don’t understand, the game is a game and the joke is on them.
