Just after the New Year, Jesse Sprinkle entered his studio to find the computer that runs his sound board exploded and the speakers squealing. As he puts it, his “livelihood burnt up overnight.” As a friend of the magazine, he put in a special note: This place means the world to him and his family.

Since 2007, I’ve been running this studio with my awesome friend George Hochbrueckner. I can’t put into words how much this place means to me. This studio has provided for my family, it’s produced music that has reached people locally and across the world, we’ve hosted amazing concerts and even tea parties. No matter what it is, I believe we’re helping people achieve goals and live out their dreams — the dreams that really mean something. … I hope that we can keep making this studio a better place.
