Multi-Platinum award winning engineer

After getting my start as a professional in Houston TX, I moved back to my native New York for a short stint at the Island Def Jam Music Group, where I learned the other side of the industry while building up my clientele as a freelance engineer. In the seven years since, I have worked with even more artists in genres from hip-hop to shoe gaze. While the majority of my work is with Alternative, Pop, and Hip Hop records, I love getting an opportunity to expand my abilities and paint a new picture.

On the personal side, I'm an average home brewer and avid hiker.

On the professional side, I'm a member of the Audio Engineering Society and a voting member of The Recording Academy.

Interview with Joe Costable

What are you working on at the moment?
American Authors' second album, and a few up and coming artists' EPs
What do you bring to a song?
An outside ear to bring out the energy and sonic clarity of a song.
Analog or digital and why?
Digital- because it's 2015. Analog- because of bottom end.
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I lose sleep over my work so you don't have to. It's my name on it as well, and I will work until it's perfect to your ears.
What do you like most about your job?
There's a different challenge every day, and no two songs are the same.
What questions do you ask prospective clients?
What are you listening to recently?
Can you share one music production tip?
If it doesn't sound good with one mic, it won't sound better with two.
What type of music do you usually work on?
Alternative, Rock, and Pop. I do a bit of hip-hop as well and really enjoy those records.
