A LITTLE ABOUT MBM'S FOUNDER...
..OUR OWN RESIDENT DREAMER: ANDY
Music Box Media was started in 2010 by then-touring musician & producer Andy - Having spent some years playing around the UK in various bands, Andy had been recording friend's bands in his garage, slowly moving up from a basic portastudio to a full rig, having chosen a path of working and live gigs rather than the traditional University route.
A chance meeting in 2005 whilst living on the North Devon Coast surfing the days away saw his then punk band Mr Zippy share a bill with Ska-Punks Fandangle - Instant friendships were made, and when Fandangle's bassist left not long after, Andy joined the line up and was catapulted into a busy touring life across the continent almost straight away - This threw a spanner into the works in terms of holding down a job, so the move was made to recording bands, and a new studio was born - or as we know it, the second incarnation of "Music Box Recording Studio" - See where this is going?!
Fast forward to 2010, and some years of heavy touring had seen the studio busy, and whilst between studio premises [moving on to open the third incarnation of the recording studio, above the Orange Box venue in Yeovil], various poor experiences with various CD Duplication companies, an ever-expanding contacts book of bands finding similar experiences, and a huge amount of research and negotiating across the channel, Music Box Media was born - A CD Pressing company that cut the B/S and was run by a musician that had lived, breathed and eaten the scene for many years for musicians themselves.
