About Us


With heavy hearts we have to say goodbye… for now. As we’ve recently closed our doors, we wanted to extend our appreciation to the local community — the artists, musicians, engineers, producers and other music makers who have occupied our studios and helped to create the incredibly fun and creative environment that had inhabited our walls. We thoroughly enjoyed every moment of your energy, and we can’t begin to express how thankful we are that you chose to spend your time with us. We all feel very fortunate and humbled that we were entrusted to help all of you along on your journeys while stopping through JingleTown.

While we are sad to see the studio close down, we look forward to all the new and exciting opportunities that lay ahead of us. With that said, we will remain involved in this incredible community by continuing to work with those who are interested. Both Lee Bothwick and Chris Dugan will have some availability in their futures and their contact information will be listed below. The JingleTown Recording Facebook and Instagram pages will still be actively promoting the work that they are a part of as well.

So with this, our final official JingleTown Recording transmission, we say thank you! Without your support we could never have achieved any of what we were able to accomplish. We hope you all stay in touch, and if you ever have a question, want advice, or need some assistance, give us a shout. We are committed to our continuing support of this incredible community as well as all of the greater Bay Area studios, and we hope you are too!

We have hella ♥ for Oakland and we always will.
