Producer John Baffa has been in the professional audio business for more than 20 years; primarily as a recording engineer. He founded TV Tray Recording Studio in 2003, working literally from the top of a TV tray as he learned the ins and outs of recording. From those humble beginnings, the studio grew and developed over the years; building an impressive list of clients and projects spanning a huge range of genres.
Producer Ralph Carter is a multi instrumentalist (Bass, Keyboards, Guitar, Percussion), a songwriter, composer, producer, and music educator. Currently living in Ventura, today Ralph is recording and producing local artists, (Franck Goldwasser, Jon Gindick, Leslie Bixler) in his Ventura studio. His first big break was in 1980, playing with Danny “Kootch” Korchmar opening for Linda Ronstadt on the “Mad Love” tour. On the heels of that he hooked up with Eddie Money, writing and recording some of Eddie’s greatest hits (“Shakin,” “No Control,” “Where’s The Party”).
The Thomas Fire broke out the evening of December 4, 2017 in Santa Paula. It quickly swept over the hills of Santa Paula and Ventura into Ojai and Fillmore, making its way into neighboring Santa Barbara County. The Thomas Fire eventually became the largest fire in California history, consuming over 281,000 acres, destroying over 1,000 homes and causing the evacuation of over 100,000 people in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties.
