My name is Justin Ames and I've been a musician since I was 12 years old. My first experience with a recording studio was when I was just 15 years old, I recorded a track with a few friends of mine at a nice studio in Prescott, AZ. Since that time, I became interested in the recording process and purchased my first piece of recording gear.
Once I graduated High School, I decided to move down to the Phoenix area to attend a recording school called the Conservatory of Recording Arts and Sciences where I learned a lot of valuable techniques to apply to my projects.
In 2010, after I finished school, I moved back to Prescott and I purchased a set of drum mics, a new interface, a computer, and a few dynamic mics and started recording musicians in a small room that I turned into a studio at my house. Back then, I was using the name Ames Recording Studios.
After moving to a new location and working with many different genres and artists, I moved to a new location in 2014. I also changed the name of my studio to Sky City Audio in 2016. I've worked with clients all over the world and have worked with local acts too. Locals like: The Faultlines, Sour Fix, Pharoh De Qua, Blister Unit, Prize Fight, NKNGS, Alpha Pigeon, 36 Below, Aeterisk, Ugly.
In 2017, I decided to add more services to Sky City Audio by providing sound equipment to live shows, meetings, speeches, etc and have also added DJing for corporate clients, private parties, and weddings.
