“My studio philosophy is simple: I strive to get the best sound possible. I work until the song and the performance are as good as they can be and if we get a hit record along the way then that’s a home run.  Either way we work hard and always have a good time doing it.”

~ Ron Banks (V.J.)

Ron Banks completed his engineering apprenticeship at several New York City Studios, including A&R Studio, The Hit Factory and Celestial Sound.  Ron’s first independent engineering project was with the hit maker Freddie Jackson for Capitol Records.  They subsequently collaborated on four more albums together.
