Background information

KMA Music is a recording studio located in Midtown Manhattan, just north of Times Square, in the Theater District of New York City. It was opened in 1988 by Michael Case Kissel.[1] Until 2007, the studio's original location was 1650 Broadway at 51st street. KMA has since moved to 1619 Broadway at 49th street. Located in the Brill Building,[2] a facility well known for its historical significance in the music industry,[3] Shortly after moving, the studio underwent a major redesign. Consulting with Fran Manzella, a well known studio architect, KMA sought to modernize their appearance[1][2] as well as music consultant Roy P. Perez to expand its major label clientele.
