    I can't recommend Josh enough. His ability and musical knowledge are top notch. I had him do the first song on my album and the result was so good, I had him mix the whole album. He's great for vocal timing and tuning. He's great for mastering. He can do it all. Honestly, a 5 star review.

    I've been working with Joshua exclusively for the past couple of months mixing and mastering my 6 track EP. He is a magician ! he works fast really listens to notes and creates something amazing. I would definitely recommend him and will work with him again on future projects.

    Joshua is an incredible sound engineer! He gave my voice this sound I’d been looking all over for before. He was incredibly skilled at making sure my voice was the main focus of the song and at the same time he brought out the best in the track.

    Besides that, Joshua is an incredibly professional, patient and punctual engineer and I know I’ll be coming back to him for my future projects!!

    Would give 6 stars if I could.

    Did an amazing mix of a song I was working on and helped me improve my own mix with a 2 hour video conference going over everything that could be improved and the way to do it. Would love to work with him again someday :)

    Came to Joshua for a mix critique and some production feedback and advice. He's got a wide breadth of knowledge and an honest and constructive approach to feedback. I hope to work on future mixes with him.

    There isn’t a better engineer out there than Josh. Period. He works with you to get the sound you want. He can really really tweak vocals to get them right. I call him The Wizard. This is my second time working with him. We did a whole project in December. Amazing work!

    Josh nailed it! We spoke about the specifics of what I was looking for and he really got it. After only two iterations of a mix he got it. He worked quickly and is really knowledgeable and professional. I recommend.

    Josh is by far the best engineer I have worked with. He can both MIX AND MASTER amazingly. Not a lot of people can really do both right. Been through countless engineers. He is by far the best!

    Working with Joshua was a breeze; he was very easy to communicate with from the start and totally nailed our first mix. He was able to hear the rough demo mix and now exactly how to fine-tune things from there. Would absolutely recommend working with him!
