Our History

In 1992 Route 44 first opened its doors to the Northern California music community in the quaint little town of Healdsburg, CA. From that point on until Spring 1996, it was mainly a 16 Track ADAT Studio with some Analog Gear thrown in for vibe. Harry & Jon Jones (BC Sound) recorded many local and national recording artists and built a following of loyal return-customers, offering quality production, rates & rehearsal space.
