The studios at Threshold were hand-built by owners James Walsh and AJ Maltese starting in 1996 when our facility was just a single rehearsal room in a building on 41st. AJ and James were musicians playing in a band together and James was a carpenter. We built a studio to do our band’s record. We’ve been building studios, playing, producing music & serving musicians in Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens, Staten Island, Long Island, New York, New Jersey, Connecticut & beyond ever since!
As the facility footprint expanded, the main recording studio was completed between 1997/ 1998 after the unfortunate passing of our friend and studio tenant Jeff Buckley opened up the final adjoining space to the live room. Our control room now occupies that same space in the facility.
We are very thankful for all the great friends we have made over the years and hope to continue to do what we do best long into the future. Our studio also works well for photo sessions and shooting video- and has become a trusted go to place for indie artists and prominent MTV, AT&T and other corporate clients in need of a cool looking studio to film in.
