In May of 2005, Scott Lehrer and I opened up 2nd Story Sound, a recording studio we built in an old industrial building on the Lower East Side of New York City. StorySound Records has grown, naturally enough, out of the social and professional life of that studio — the sessions, the pantry hangs, the players and producers, engineers and arrangers, composers, singers and songwriters that are part of my daily life here. The label has no grander ambition than to make a good home for music that I care about.
