Jade Phoenix Entertainment has already been on the move in Houston, with the 2017 production of Soul Of The City, set to return summer of 2018.
The goal is to provide quality professional grade products while being surrounded by a comely home-like environment. Jade Phoenix Entertainment's Studio Urbana, a boutique recording and dance studio, is exactly that place. Studio Urbana also serves as the planning headquarters for the Soul Of The City productions.
Studio Urbana offers a VIP tailored experience to each artist we entertain. Starting with a single studio suite, promoting an inviting, familiar, & tailored energy each guest can look forward to and feel reassured to have while in our care. It's the red carpet for musical creation, so you can put your good garbs on!
Experiences Teach Us Truth:
An experience after a recording session at a local, popular music studio, things went horribly awry. I was taunted by racially charged slurs. The males were so malicious that I was aggressed for a fight. The on-duty receptionist asked them to leave. However, the issue was never addressed by management or the offending party. I knew then, there needed to be a change.
No one should have to endure racism, misogyny, or bigotry when working or paying to improve their life. Moreso, a physical altercation. As a woman, I want other women to come to a place they never have to fear fighting a man, or anyone... With the exception for maybe, self-doubt!
Knowing and believing that people deserve a better experience, everywhere they go, I aimed to begin my own journey and I am creating an environment free of those unethical issues. Thus, the Studio Urbana dream was born. Studio Urbana promotes equality, love, & fire music notes...to everyone.
This campaign is to raise $15,000 to secure Studio Urbana's location, website operation, & begin servicing artists in the city of Houston. The support you provide, covers payment for the home location and house rendering. As you can see, it's quite the little gem space!
Your Backing Of Studio Urbana Will Provide:
Vital Working Capital:
A stocked, equipped, and ready facility. A quality recording studio requires quality equipment for artists to create the quality products they can be proud of. This campaign's success provides the facility's utilization updates, such as sound proofing, acoustic treatment, and acquisition of industry standard equipment for music studios.
The updates include building & perimeter security. Many recording sessions linger into latter evening hours and my goal is to ensure Studio Urbana guests feel safe and appreciated.
Community & Growth Opportunities:
Greatest of all, your support gives Studio Urbana a community and provides leverage with financial institutions for lending opportunities, that are otherwise unavailable. It also provides the headquarters needed to procure equipment for the resident engineers to begin creating quality records with local artists.

A Dynamically Transformed Space:
The main hall of the studio transforms into a dance studio one day a week for production rehearsals and choreography sessions. It is truly a unique space for creatives.
Tier Goals For Completed Project :
Here is an example of the studio room configuration after completing the first tier goal. This configuration contains the recording and audio control segments:
It would mean the world if this campaign reached funding of $50,000. That ensures Studio Urbana to open and run fully equipped with the addition of an abridged recording booth for increased quality recording and space for full band instrumental work. The addition will require expansion of the existing square footage. This is the second tier goal of this campaign.
Below is a sample rendering of the new design with the addition of the artist recording booth:
The new design will improve sound quality during recording and will accommodate full band instrumentation for live recording projects.
At Studio Urbana, Art Comes To Life:
When I look at Studio Urbana, my spirit gets happy. I can feel the energy, the drums, the beat, the music that will ascend from within the walls. I hope you feel it, I hope you hear it. I hope you will see it too. It's captivating. With your support, people everywhere can hear and feel it too.

Risks and challenges
The biggest challenge faced with Studio Urbana and industry in general, is ensuring adequate funding. I am working to triumph this issue through your support, through working with qualified service providers that aid start-ups in credit solutions, I am working to build a positive profile for lender approval, and grant awards.
The entertainment industry is considered high risk by lenders. Making them more reluctant to offer funding. Through your support, I will be able to obtain the backing required to reassure lenders of Studio Urbana's strong foundation and ability to compete in the industry. Having experienced what more well known recording studios offer to recording artists, I can guarantee there isn't an experience comparable to what Studio Urbana will offer, and that puts us miles above competition.
The other challenge I anticipated, is the concept of artists transferring to new studio, versus remaining at an established location. I plan to meet this challenge by having promotions for our new clientele to establish the faith in us they need, the facility, and industry standard equipment to reassure artists of Studio Urbana's commitment to quality products.
With your support, these aren't challenges at all.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
