The Los Angeles Business Journal featured the home of Manatt's Jordan Bromley, a partner in the firm's Entertainment & Media Practice, in an article discussing the in-house recording studio that has been set up and is used by a number of local musicians.
The journal reports that Bromley opened his house, which he bought in 2010 in Silver Lake, to friends and clients in the local music scene after realizing that a half-dozen musicians he represented lived within blocks. Dubbed the "Effie House" because it is located on Effie Street, it has become a social and professional gathering place, with inhabitants including singer-songwriter Rocco DeLuca and indie rocker Christian Letts. U2 producer Daniel Lanois has also recorded a performance video at the house.
Bromley, who negotiates contracts for entertainment clients, doesn't charge for recording. "It's nice to have a place that everybody in the community can feel is a common ground," he said. "It's fun. I feel part of something."
