KMGLife Inc., formerly KMG Studios, began as a recording studio in 2010 and was based in Denver, CO. When CEO Greg Kimble founded his company he made a huge splash in the Colorado music scene. With a knowledgeable team, high quality gear, industry sound, comfortable atmosphere, creative vibe and unbeatable prices, KMGLife Inc. attracted a lot of attention from local artists and was originally known as the "studio created by musicians for musicians." Virtually anything an artist would need musically and visually can be accomplished under one roof, including but not limited to production, writing, recording, mixing, mastering, full artist-development, photography, video services, press, promotion, social media management, live shows, graphic design, branding and more.
KMGLife Inc. has now expanded into the education realm.

My favorite part about the KMG AMP Program was the freedom to develop my own sound while learning the basic guidelines of Ableton. I also really enjoyed the opportunity it gave me to not only meet new and upcoming local artists, however also confide in them in my mixing process and get feedback on how I can grow.
The constant thirst for knowledge that surrounds you from the second you walk through the doors of KMG. The amazing energy, positivity, and assistance that everyone from student to teacher pushes you to learn as much as possible and be the best at what you do but treat you like family. That was probably the best part of my experience.
My favorite part of the program has been the opportunities to learn about all aspects of audio engineering! The diversity in topics covered in the program allowed me to discover my love of working with musicians, especially bands, as well as discover my interest in post production.
