Chief City Recordings started out with a 4-track Tascam tape recorder I acquired in junior high around 1995. The rig has changed a number of times since then, while recording operations moved from the Bronx, to Philadelphia, to Amsterdam and now Portland. We’ve gone through a few breaks here and there but this thing never seems to die.
Chief City’s mission has always been rather simple: encourage creativity and help artists bring their music to the people.
