Give Your Music the Signature Sound You Deserve

Joe is a fun, motivating, and extremely creative Record Producer that focuses on making artists sound like a “F-ing Star!”  With extensive music, audio engineering, and people skills he knows how to motivate, inspire, and challenge performers to bring out the very best in them – often times pushing them beyond what they even think are their current limitations.

A number 1 songwriter, Joe is a world class level player of electric & acoustic guitar, piano/synth, bass, beat & sequence programming, engineering, and mixing. If outside session players are needed, he has an extensive roster of top LA session musicians he can call upon who has recorded with artists such as Sherly Crow, Foo Fighters, The Roots, Mana, Fergie, Black Eye Peas, Quincy Jones, and many others. When asked what style he produces, JOE answers, “Good! Meaning if the artist’s voice and the songwriting are good, then we can frame the song with whatever style that is most appropriate for them.”

Whether you’re an artist, band, songwriter, film director, music supervisor, or any other music industry creative, Joe’s specialty is working synergistically with you in the execution of creating your unique signature sound. “Magic in the studio comes from the synergistic combination of when your ideas and my ideas get together and make little baby ideas that are even better than the ones we originally came up with!” says Joe.

He first “gets inside your head” to fully understand where you are coming from musically & lyrically, and then works hand-in-hand with you to create radio-ready broadcast quality master recordings that are larger-than-life pictures born out of the seeds of the original ideas. . . Your music will jump out of the speakers.
