Meet the Lala Mansion Crew
Head Engineer/Studio Manager
Andrew grew up in a very musical family and quickly dove in, learning to play along on the guitar or drums or whatever. But when his Uncle Don (Miggs) invited him to sit in on his first recording session, he knew that the studio was where he belonged. Since then he has barely left the place; engineering, assistant engineering and co-producing tons of sessions, while also becoming studio manager. Call him at 813.658.5747 to book a session today!

JC was born and raised in Connecticut before setting out to New York City to pursue a career in recording. Reaching New York, he dove into the recording industry head first, assisting at Sound Ideas and The Hit Factory, before becoming a recording and mixing engineer at Sigma Sound Studios working for Joe Tarsia. His early projects as an engineer/mixer included Madonna’s “Holiday”, Talking Heads’ “Speaking in Tongues”, and Miles Davis’ “Siesta”. JC’s work has become recognized widely, earning several Emmy awards, a Peabody award, several gold and platinum records – two of which going on to win Grammy awards – and a seat on the Grammy Nominating Committee for Engineering Excellence, to name a few of his merits. Brad Paisley, Country Music Award’s three times “Best Entertainer of the Year,” says of JC, “Nobody gets a better television mix of my band than JC.” JC was also the man behind the board when Lady Antebellum, winner of five 2010 Grammy awards, performed “Need You Now” during the GMA Summer Concert Series.
Don Miggs opened Lala Mansion Studio in 2009 (and Lala Mansion West in 2015) as a space to create music for his projects, as well as produce and write with industry friends he’s accumulated over the past 30+ years in the business. Having an affinity for vintage gear, guitars and drums (and SSL consoles), Lala Mansion was built with a desire to mix old-school recording with cutting edge technology. Don is either with his family or in one of his studios (or out to dinner, he’s a big fan of eating).
