Personnel

Tye Robison

Tye Robison has been Chief Engineer at January Sound Studio for 20 years, having been part of a group that bought into the facility in 1998.

Specializing in Jazz, Rock, Roots and World Music, Tye was a percussion prodigy from Oklahoma, earning numerous Jazz and Classical awards, up through the college level. Tye was a founding member of regional rock favorites The Nixons in 1990, before attacking Texas with a desire to make studio magic in 1992. Tye was then invited to join Texas' own The Toadies, but politely declined in order to focus on other musical genres and work on his studio producing and engineering career.

Since 1998 Tye has dedicated his entire existence and energies into trying to keep this historic facility alive, while cranking out satisfying recordings for the discerning artist and listener.

Wes Warren

Wes Warren was a client of January Sound Studio for 15 years, recording two complete CD’s, prior to purchasing a 50% stake in the legendary recording studio. Wes is lover of many genres of music but as a songwriter, guitar player and solo act he leans heavily toward blues-rock with a Texas flavor. Born in East Texas, Wes primarily grew up in DFW before heading to college near Austin, TX on a basketball scholarship. The scholarship meant he didn’t have to have a “real” job and allowed him to rehearse and practice for many hours with his band Sideways Café. The band created a decent following in and around Austin, playing to avid fans at the now defunct Black Cat Lounge and The Back Room, along with a couple of dates at legendary Scholz Beer Garden and numerous other venues.

Having learned the difficulties of making a living as a musician, Wes now splits his time between January Sound and his retirement planning business, FSS Group in Grapevine, TX. Wes will occasionally provide guitar session work to January Sound clients in need. A huge fan of the studio’s vibe and rich history, Wes became a partner to assist in re-creating the prominence this amazing studio enjoyed in past decades.

Wes lives in Flower Mound, TX with his wife, four kids, giant dog and guitar collection.
