I can take your song from an idea to a finished product. I can produce a full arrangement for a solo artist. I can edit tracks recorded in the most modest home studio all the way up through tracks recorded in top level pro studios. I can take your song and bring it to life through a dynamic mix.
I have been a multi-instrumentalist for close to twenty years working in genres all across the board. I have been in rock bands, jazz quartets, 15-piece big bands, and americana groups through the years. I play piano, organ, rhodes, synthesizers, and anything else with a keyboard. I also play acoustic and electric guitar, bass, and drums.
I have also been editing and mixing for fifteen years. I provide time alignment, vocal comping, and vocal tuning. For the first ten years of my editing and mixing experience I exclusively worked on my own projects. For the past five years I have worked on projects for local groups.

No other way to say it - I hit the JACKPOT when I found Joe!!!
He's part musical genius + part mind reader. He knows his stuff.
Joe was able to really capture the essence of my song and pull the exact emotions I was hoping for.
I asked if we could try a couple of things, just to experiment - and he was very accommodating.
My biggest task was trying to choose from such amazing takes! Hard to do when they're all incredible.
I HIGHLY recommend Joe for any original piano parts or producing.
Joe is awesome! He's quick, easy to work with, professional, and has a unique gift for mixing. Joe is a musical genius and will always be my go-to! I highly recommend him for all your needs.
Interview with Joe Richardson
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Like most other producers I am inspired by Max Martin. I am inspired by his ability to give a song exactly what it needs, no more and no less. From a mixing standpoint I am inspired by Andrew Scheps. His versatility in genre has always been something that I have aspired to.
Q: What do you bring to a song?
A: My background in musical performance is very diverse. This allows me to pull from a large variety of sources when working on a song. I always try to provide exactly what the song needs and my background allows me to do just that.
Q: What's your strongest skill?
A: My strongest skill is my knowledge in music theory. This foundation allows me to be creative in production, precise in editing, and intentional in mixing.
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: The bulk of my work is in the worship genre. Modern worship music is rooted in the rock genre with elements of atmospheric and electronic music as well.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Less is more. Intentionally choosing one great sound is always better than stacking lots of sounds that are just okay.
