MEET THE TEAM
Owner/Founder of Cambridge Sound Studios
Jim Salamone, started his musical journey as a drummer in his hometown of Philadelphia. As the years went by, he found himself opening up for artists like John Lennon and Larry Coryell, to then backing up artists such as Chuck Berry and Joe Cocker. Riveting live performances paved the way for his extensive studio drumming career, eventually making a home for himself at Philadelphia's famed, Sigma Sound Studio. By the early 1980's Jim applied his drumming and technical skills into sequencing drum machines and producing records for an array of critically acclaimed international artists. As the years passed, he had cultivated a long list of major label credits and accolades (including grammy nominations) for his many skills, whether it be drumming, writing, engineering, producing, mixing, and mastering or all of the above. Some of Jim's more widely known credits include popular artists such as Bon Jovi, Teddy Pendergrass, The O'Jays, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Rolling Stones and many more. To see a list of some of his credits, please click here. After nearly two decades of owning and operating studios in various places like Sigma Sound Studios and Studio 4, Jim decided to open a studio of his own. In 2007, Jim started creating Cambridge Sound Studios, a beautiful and large studio originally located in historic town of Newtown, Pa in Bucks County . Since the studio opened it's doors in May of 2008, with each passing year, it was becoming more and more apparent that the studio had outgrown it's Bucks County location and the operation was in need for more space. As a result, Cambridge Sound Studios relocated to it's current location in South Philadelphia.

Drew is the man and plans on coming up with a pretty sweet bio to insert in to this nice little section that has been reserved for him. In addition to be a great and accomplished engineer, he's also really good at problem solving, fixing broken things and reading instruction manuals. He plays a lot of instruments and is also great chess player.
