I am applying for a grant through the Chase Mission Main Street program, which annually awards 20 grants to small businesses. In order to meet the requirement to compete for this grant I must receive 250 votes from people like yourself by October 17th, 2014.
It only takes a minute to vote and it costs nothing. It does require that you have a Facebook profile. Chase uses this info only to insure that people do not vote twice for the same company. Here is the link:

If you didn't just click that link, maybe you want to know why I am asking for your vote? A fair question. Read on:
In 2005, like many smaller recording facilities, I set up shop in my current location with a pile of recording gear I had accumulated over the years, a shoestring budget, and a dream.
My perception was that there was a gap in the availability of affordable, professional audio production services. My goal was to provide those services.
Almost a decade later, I am still doing it! I have worked for hundreds of artists and musicians, helping to make your projects a reality. As my business has grown, I have furnished thousands of dollars of subcontracting to various local artists and composers. I have worked on an Oscar winning film, a Grammy nominated album and composed trailers for a major sports event (2014 FIFA World Cup), among many other jobs. I continue to be happy, proud of, and energized by the work I've done!
This grant, should I get it, would be substantial. What would I do with $150K instead of a shoestring? Some items spring immediately to mind:
1) Revamp, augment and replace aging equipment.
2) Expand my intern program
3) Implement a subsidized recording program for promising young
4) Continue to find new and exciting ways to grow and expand.
