As a young engineer, I want to get this right. I'll revise until you love it.
I'm a mixing/mastering engineer originally from Richmond, VA. I run a home studio in Southwest Virginia now. Coming from a frontman background in Richmond's rock scene, I love guitar, drums, distortion, and people with a DIY-make-it-happen attitude. I love working with new things, so hit me up with your project!

Interview with Jack Howe
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How many tracks is the project? Where do you want this project to go? What are some inspirations for the sound of this project?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: I've been making music for 6 years now, recording for three, and I recently began production this past year. I went to Virginia Tech for Packaging Systems and Design, until senior year when I took a major left turn and decided that I'd rather spend my life producing music using the skills I'd picked up in my Music Technology minor. So now I've transitioned to doing what I love.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Measure the distance from your drum spot mics to your overheads. You can use that distance to correct the phase issues, bringing transient clarity and low end back into the spots.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: Growing up my two favorite sounds to come out of a stereo were 1) anything by The Cars, and 2) anything by The Clash. Hitting college I discovered a love for sounds ranging from Mastodon to Interpol.
