Founded in 1962 by Dave Plummer, Cypress Records has become a revolving door for music history. Shortly following its opening, the studio built their first stand alone building in Jacksonville Beach, Florida. Construction on Cypress Records lasted from 1972-1974. Upon completion it became the largest studio in the southeast. As a result, Cypress Records recorded and produced for nearly every nationally known artist from Jacksonville; including Lynyrd Skynyrd, Limp Bizkit, Yellowcard, The Allman Brothers, The Charlie Daniels Band, 38 Special, Molly Hatchet and more.
Following in his father’s footsteps, David Plummer continues the Cypress Records legacy by breathing new life into the studio. He expresses the value in capturing the studio’s nostalgia while still remaining a leader in the audio recording industry. With renovations and upgrades, David has launched Cypress Records into the 21st Century. Earning decades of experience, Cypress Records is ready to provide recording services to the next generation of artists.
