Owner & Producer
Since launching Dubway in the mid-80's, Al has built a small recording studio into a full-fledged production facility. He opened the original Dubway in the Music Building at 584 Eighth Avenue. Word quickly spread about the lone engineer in a tiny studio who could conjure up amazing sounds using only one blown speaker and a beat-up four-track. Since those early days, Al has worked on countless projects, built the dazzling new Dubway Studios, and continues to be an active musician in New York's club scene.
Nicole started at Dubway after spending time at an art house movie theater and performance space as a manager and projectionist. She has been living in New York for over a decade and has probably jumped off the stage at every NYC music venue. Nicole loves all genres of music from Rock 'n Roll and Pop, to Bluegrass, Rap and even Disney tunes. In her free time, when she is not engaged in the music industry, she enjoys working on her mixed media artwork and channeling her inner nerd at comic book conventions.
Operations Manager, engineer

In film, he has contributed to Alejandro G. Iñárritu’s The Revenant, Godfrey Reggio's Naqoyqatsi, Abel Ferrara's 4:44 Last Day on Earth, and the Showtime documentary Comedy Warriors, among others. He has also worked on major contemporary classical music albums including those of composers John Luther Adams and Philip Glass.

Director, LOCATION AUDIO
Seth has been doing location audio for seventeen years. His first production job was as a boom operator on a small indie film back in 1997, and since then he has spent a total of two weeks NOT in the audio department, while directing an episode of ABC’s Wife Swap. In that time, he has run the gamut from full-length feature films to 30-second commercials: from reality docu-dramas with a cast of two dozen to intimate one-on-one documentaries. Whether flying solo, heading the audio department, or just being part of the team, he has learned how to run the smoothest and most efficient audio department possible within the parameters of each individual production. He is very excited to be affiliated with Dubway.
Some production highlights: Rodger Dodger, Dummy, Kissing Jessica Stein, The Hebrew Hammer, America's Next Top Model, Project Runway, Survivor, Wife Swap, The City, and The First 48 among others. Recent credits include A Crime to Remember (Investigation Discovery), Motel Hell (MTV), Wicked Single (VH1), Inside the KKK (Discovery), The United Stats of America (History), and Hard Parts (Velocity).

When Grant’s not busy representing Dubway, they can be found designing sound for a film, or making music for a variety of different projects, including their own band, Grimsel.
