Long before Vintage King, teenaged Jeffrey Ehrenberg was recording his garage band literally in a Monterey, California garage. After spending countless hours figuring out a Fostex 1/4" 8-track, he progressed to studying audio engineering in college, and eventually became a live sound/recording engineer.
While working as an engineer, Ehrenberg's own band, Starlight Desperation, took off and signed a deal with Capitol for a full-length release. As the band toured the world, working with fantastic producers and studios along the way, the people he met inspired the young musician to always be looking for new sounds.
"I start with a fresh approach to everything I do with music and production," Ehrenberg says. "There are some fundamental elements of engineering and organizing workflow, but tones and techniques are usually a fresh approach. This plays well into my ability to work with a wide variety of equipment at Vintage King."
In addition to his work at Vintage King and spending time with his family, Ehrenberg co-owns Infrasonic Mastering; a full-service, Grammy-winning mastering facility, which keeps him active in the music business. Alongside his partner, Pete Lyman, the facility has been responsible for mastering records from Halsey, Jason Isbell, Chris Stapleton, Banks, Weezer, Twin Peaks, OFF! and more.
Jeff Ehrenberg's friendly approach to helping customers goes back to some advice he received as a young man. "Treat every artist, assistant, session player and intern like they are the world's biggest star,' Ehrenberg states. "That's how we all deserve to be treated you never know who will be 'the next big thing' and many successful people tend to help those who've helped them along the way."
