Type Foundry was founded in 1998 by San Luis Obispo, CA transplant Adam Selzer in a small storefront in SE Portland, Oregon where it lived for two years. In
late 2000 Jason Powers moved down from Olympia, WA and became a partner with Adam. Soon thereafter, we were forced to move, and after three months in storage the studio was relocated
to its current home, a sizable warehouse space tucked away in an industrial area of North Portland. In 2002, A year or so after settling into the new space, Jeremy Romagna, a co-founder of the now defunct Portland Robot Steakhouse joined on as the third engineer. The most recent addition, making Type Foundry a four engineer
cooperative, is Dylan Magierek, formerly of Closer Recording, another collective studio in San Francisco, and also the head of Badman Recording Co.. Dylan's arrival catalyzed a major studio upgrade, in which we purchased our Trident Series 70 console, added tons of new gear, and shut down for two months in the summer of 2006 to build a 3rd tracking room.
Collectively we have worked with a wide variety of artists from the Portland independent music world, as well as many internationally known musicians and record labels. To see a complete list visit our clients page. To see bios of the Type Foundry engineers visit our bio page.
