Mystery Street Co-Founder Rejoins Company as Staff Engineer and Systems Manager

Brings new fuel to rapidly growing company after 4 year creative endeavor.

(Chicago, IL – April 1, 2016) After a four year absence from Mystery Street Recording Company, co-founding Audio Engineer, Brendan Cushing, better known in the music industry as Mickey T. Craft, joins the company again as Staff Engineer and Systems Manager.

Mystery Street Recording is a multi-functional recording facility, with all-inclusive hourly music rehearsal spaces, and a state-of-the-art Audio Preservation Lab in its storefront. Mystery Street also offers services such as live sound engineering, audio equipment rentals, and karaoke recording parties for kids or adults.

Craft comes to Mystery Street with an intimate understanding of the company’s core values, including a dedication to service and world-class audio production, of which, Mystery Street has built its reputation.

“I am thrilled that our paths have crossed again,” explains Mystery Street President, Joe Tessone, “Amongst a number of highly qualified applicants, Mickey’s exceptional understanding of audio production, combined with familiarity with our way of business, make him the perfect person for this position. The choice was clear.”

Tessone and Craft have a long history together, meeting as lab partners at Columbia College’s Audio Department then co-founding Mystery Street soon after graduation in 2007. They also played in a band together for a number of years. Craft left the company in 2011 to more closely focus on music production and performance, while doing business as Multi Track Chicago. Multi Track Chicago had shared space with Wall-to-Wall Recording at 676 N. LaSalle, until the recent sale of the building and closing of the studio spaces.

Plus, the combination its gear arsenal and mine, means amazing production capabilities,” Mickey explains, “It is a win-win-win for the studio, our engineers, and our clients.
