PLATTSBURGH — Artists of the North Country have a new voice with North Volume — a website “dedicated to all things artistic.”

“I’m friends with a lot of musicians, and one thing that has been a problem is not having the outlets to be heard,” founder and co-owner Damian Battinelli said. “That got me thinking.”

He brought the idea to the attention of friends Tom Gerner and Tracy Gryger, who went all in by funding the initial endeavor, which included the creation of a recording studio and web hosting.

North Volume’s lone part-time employee, Producer and Studio Manager Jarred Vislocky, records and edits all the podcasts and maintains the website. Otherwise, the show guests and hosts are all volunteers.

“We’re all doing it for the love of it,” Vislocky said.

The recording studio is located at Damian’s In Tandem Productions photography studio on Court Street.
