CityVox’s predecessor, Full House Productions, was founded in 1981 in a small converted apartment on E. 49th Street in New York City. With credit cards, two Teac ¼” tape decks, an inexpensive mixing console, and an old bathtub for storing extra equipment, Full House Productions began its journey to becoming one of New York City’s leading recording studios.
The early days brought jobs that included commercial television and radio demos for major ad agencies like J. Walter Thompson, Grey Advertising, and Griffin Bacal, the ad agency of record for Hasbro Toys. These first few years became so busy that in 1984, Full House moved to new studio space at 150 Fifth Avenue, where it thrived for the next 15 years.
In the mid-90’s, Full House bought The Sun Group, a leading producer of audio for English-As-A-Second Language programs. In 2000, the two companies merged in a larger studio on 18th Street.
Also in 2000, Full House merged with another recording studio, A & J Recording, in New York City. The client list now grew to include documentary filmmakers like Ken Burns and Ric Burns.
In 2010, Full House Productions closed its doors to morph into a new and more vibrant company: CityVox, LLC. With the staff from Full House still intact, the company moved yet again, back to midtown Manhattan, but this time into the historic Film Center Building at 630 Ninth Avenue.
CityVox continues to be involved in the various endeavors that kept Full House busy and thriving for almost thirty years. CityVox is a more efficient operation, and as such, is able to exceed the high standards set by its predecessor and remains one of the leading recording studios and production companies for the advertising and publishing industries.
