Meet Jimmy Hill.
Amplified Wax is a professional recording studio located in downtown Spokane, owned and operated by Jimmy and Mandy Hill. Specializing in recording, graphic design, and promotional products, Amplified Wax is a one stop shop for artists and companies looking to create quality content and market their brand.
The husband and wife team graduated from Eastern Washington University with degrees in marketing and graphic design. Not happy in his long time position as a commercial banking specialist at one of the country’s leading financial institutions, Jimmy turned down a management position and focused his attention on renovating the basement of his modest home into a recording studio.
Although growth was modest at first, the company began to gain traction in the music community, and the need for more space resulted in a big move in 2010 to the historic Garland district. The new location provided more space for artists to create, and with Mandy joining the roster as partner, graphic design and promotional products were added to the companies services. This five year period catapulted the company forward as the go to studio in the area for both artists and small businesses.
This steady rise paved the way to the company procuring their own building downtown in the summer of 2015. A fresh look and state of the art acoustics and equipment have set the studio apart from its competition as national and local acts continue to book out the calendar for months in advance.
The owners look to the future as plans develop to include a school for recording and production, as well as online business education focused on Spotify and social media marketing for artists and small business.
