If you haven’t yet heard about the new spot making noise on Sterling Circle, then you’d better keep reading Boulder. Just a few months ago, KMGLife Inc. opened their studio doors in the B, relocating from their former home in Greenwood Village, CO to their new, massive $5 million space. First known for their work with Denver’s hip hop/rap scene, KMGLife Inc. (which stands for Kimble Music Group, after owner/mastermind Greg Kimble) has expanded over the past five years into an empire that now consists of studio space, an attached live-event concert venue, an in-house recording arts and business program, and their own record label

A&R man, manager, and session player Mitchael Zonnefeld was kind enough to give us a tour recently, where we got to check out multiple studio rooms and vocal booths, $200k in mics, tons of sweet modern and vintage equipment, $40k in lighting and projection mapping, and even their 35 terabyte hard drive (because you gotta keep those beats safe, right?).

We checked out the live-event space too, where Denver artist Becca Krueger filmed her new music video last week. The stage and two-floored venue, complete with a VIP balcony area, is also used for album release shows and other industry parties. KMG will set up transportation for you, catering, and a number of other things to complete your event vision. And if you need a house band, KMG has got you covered there as well. Their core team members (including Zonnefeld and Kimble) play in the house/session band, Last Minute.

KMGLife Inc. has recently expanded into the media market as well:

Said Zonnefeld, “We’re a one stop shop for artists; we’re a company that happens to own a recording studio but we also do music videos, promotional work, photo shoots, social media management, private release shows… anything to help an artist achieve their dream.”

KMG has many different packages to choose from when it comes to working with them, whether you just want studio time, you have media needs, or more. Zonnefeld told us KMG can even help you with distribution through their connections with Warner Brothers, Capitol Records, and Universal.

Said Zonnefeld, “We’re a shuttle to help any musician get to their dream. KMG is a lifestyle and we’re a family.”
