Jono Manson's studio, The Kitchen Sink, has long been a recording destination for artists, producers and commercial clients, across genres, from around the world.

Jono uses the studio for his own selfish purposes (ie producing records for all sorts of people), but the facility also plays host to a wide range of other artists, from Amanda Palmer to Tom Russell, from T Bone Burnett to Ray Wylie Hubbard. 

Originally located in a converted adobe house in Chupadero, a rural area 30 minutes north of city, the studio is now housed in classic studio building in heart of downtown Santa Fe. 

David Berkeley

“It's no secret that Jono Manson is a brilliant musician, with a long and storied career. What may be less known is that he's a top shelf engineer and producer who owns and operates one of the coolest studios in the Southwest. He works hard and fast and keeps morale high. His ears are sharp and his ideas fresh. He's generous and selfless, knowing when to steer and when to lay back. I consider myself lucky to get to work beside him.” - David Berkeley (Recording Artist / Author)

Recorded LIVE in front of a studio audience at The Kitchen Sink:

Constructed in 1989, during the golden age of analog recording, The Kitchen Sink's new home is arguably the best-designed facility of its kind in the state of New Mexico, and neighboring regions. The spacious live room, control room and isolation booths have all been designed to exacting standards. There is on-site parking for up to ten vehicles, with additional street parking available within a few blocks of the facility, which is situated  minutes from the historic central plaza, hotels, museums, galleries and countless restaurants and bars.
