DETROIT – In a city rich in musical history, a husband and wife duo hope to make their mark on Motown.
Robin and Mike Kinnie are the founders of Audio Engineers of Detroit, a new recording studio that has just opened in Midtown.
Mike was able to make his 20-year dream come true with the money set aside for entrepreneurs in Detroit.
âThe first month of operation has been exceptional,â said Robin Kinnie of Audio Engineers in Detroit.
The couple say that’s really an understatement.
âRight after we opened our doors to the public, our phones started ringing. We started receiving emails and not just from the city, but from the Detroit metro area, âRobin said.
And things haven’t slowed down at all. They recently opened a state-of-the-art recording studio in the heart of Detroit.
Michael has dreamed of this moment for years.
âI always wanted to have my own studio. It was just one of those things, where I said okay, someday I’m going to open my own recording studio and also be able to have a school with it so that I can teach technology too, âsaid Michael.
And now they are able to do it. They are the winners of the Motor City Match program. Michael and Robin are using this opportunity and funding to help and teach others.
âI think what Mike and Robin are doing is amazing because as he gets older I think the opportunities will be endless for people in the community,â said Phillip Pierce II.
Pierce II graduated from college with a degree in music. He is now a music producer and happy to be able to do what he loves in the city he loves.
âI am from the city. It’s very important to have a studio here, where the community can form and where people can really develop their skills, âsaid Pierce II.
