a subModern Story
I started subModern Audio in the corner of my art studio in Central Falls, Rhode Island in 2010. A few years + spaces later, the studio filled a dedicated space on Dike Street in Providence where I recorded several groups including Bryan Reynolds, Divey, Pixels, Hot Tramps, and Leiko. The needs of the studio eventually outgrew the reality of the space on Dike Street. I consolidated the gear into our (Pixels) smelly basement, and began the search for a new home. During those musty months, in cramped quarters, we recorded the first FINE. record and Pixels’ Accessories EP.
Today subModern Audio occupies two mid-century-chic offices in a former bank building. The space has been described as a bit of a time capsule and as a fun, casual & creative environment for making good records.
About me: Hi, I’m Andy Davis. I run subModern Audio. I have been recording music since I was teenager. Though I started digital (literally plugging my guitar into a Soundblaster 16 sound card), I quickly went down the analog wormhole. I briefly attended Columbia College for audio engineering in 2006, but I eventually finished with a BA in photography from Rhode Island College (2011). My photography is also analog. I’ve played and toured with GYMSHORTS and the Low Anthem, and engineered records at Eyeland Studio.
