Behind the Scenes with Factory Underground Co-Owner Ethan Isaac
Our clients and friends of the Factory Underground will surely note that reclaimed country barn wood is a huge part of our aesthetic, lending itself to both the comfort and feel of our studios, as well as the acoustically pleasing environment. People often remark how easy it is to forget being in an industrial basement, and not in the top of the Catskills.
This, of course, is exactly how studio co-owner Ethan Isaac wishes it to be, having spent a fair amount of his professional life in the mountains of East Jewett, NY. He moved there from New York City, after 9-11, to build "The Ranch Studios," with his band Wooden.
Finding his way to Norwalk in 2005, he began transforming what was once a raw, industrial basement into the glorious, homey, natural wood environment that we know as "Factory Underground Studio," which recently celebrated it's 13-year anniversary!
None of this would have been possible, of course, without a lot of hard work and sweat, and 99% done by Ethan himself, as you can see in the photo above. He never stops working!
