I'm a singer-songwriter/producer/mix engineer born and raised in NYC.
I started as an intern at Jungle City Studios in NY and recently spent three years in LA assisting mix engineers and producers. Credits include: mixing on Ari Lennox's debut album Shea Butter Baby (Dreamville/Interscope), and production for the video game, Far Cry 5 (Ubisoft).
Additional credits: I've played acoustic guitar for Ari Lennox on various productions; done vocal editing/mix assistance for indie artists, Flint Eastwood, Illicit Ghost, VÉRITÉ, and Amy Guess; and production on my indie-pop project Hot Fun (BonFire Records).
I offer remote mixing and mastering out of my home studio, Endozoland, in cozy Staten Island. Also, I am available for co-writing and production.

great to work with! Awesome ear!
I was looking for a guitarist for my new music ! Joe was the right person. He found exactly what I was looking for !
Great job !
I have been writing and performing with Joe for over a decade now. Joe is an incredible musician, with a super strong ear for hooks, melodies, and production effects. His lyric writing is very strong and his ability to inspire you is effortless and natural. Not only is he a talented musician/producer/songwriter, but he is extremely reliable! His work is always of quality and he is ALWAYS on schedule/on time with deadlines.
I can't recommend Joe Endozo enough. His aptitude as an instrumentalist and engineer is only matched by his character and demeanor as a person. I don't believe I've encountered another individual who has equal measure of both technical proficiency, and taste. He is transparent, efficient, and will absolutely add to anything and everything you bring to him.
I have had the pleasure of working with Joe for a while now in a multitude of scenarios, and every single one has left me with a perfect final product and a fresh outlook on all my creative pursuits.
Joe is a wonderfully talented and incredibly thoughtful producer. Sitting down with him to write a song completely opened up my own songwriting process in a way I will be forever grateful for. He brings an artist's mentality to the craft of songwriting and music making - while having all the skills to build a beautiful track, mix, master, and engineer. The dude can do everything and play everything. And beyond just his chops, his ear and his way of working with you make him special.
You've found the right person here.
Joe is a multifaceted talent, equally at home in the creative and technical worlds. He brings a deep knowledge of engineering to every project and is careful and thorough in the producer's seat. I've worked with Joe on many drum sessions and a loop library. His sense of craftsmanship is impeccable--from mic placement to room treatment to the mix.
Creatively, Joe draws from a great range of modern and classic songwriting and production influences and is a thoughtful, patient, and inspired writing partner. I can't recommend him enough for any engineering, writing, or mixing project.
Joe is an exceptional producer. He is so easy to work with and so thorough in his approach to music. He really takes the time to elevate and enhance a song through his production. I love working with him.
Joe Endozo is a Musical Genius, and anyone would be lucky to work with him. He is a multi-faceted artist that is great at collaborating with other artists, and truly making visions come to reality. Having worked with Joe several times, I can attest that everything from his writing skills, to his production is top of the line. He delivers quality, and I can write positive things about him all day.
Interview with Joe Endozo
Q: What are you working on at the moment?
A: Outside of working with other artists and my own songs, I am currently making music for a virtual reality therapy program for the USC Medical Research Center which I'm really excited about. Patients traverse through various virtual environments on a stationary bike while the music influences their emotions and heart rate.
Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
A: My Top 8 desert island artists that I try to synthesize in order to characterize my musical identity is: John Mayer, Beck, Prince, Tom Waits, Wilco, Phoenix, The Neptunes, and Damon Albarn. Hands down.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Digital. Faster, better, stronger.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My mission is to enliven people with songs that come from an honest need for expression. There's always a deficit of truth in society and culture, so if we can build a musical path that bridges our true desires into a story worth spreading, I'm in it for the ride!
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: A great song consists of melody, "a vibe", groove, and a message. Always check if you have all four. Sometimes if you're just stuck with a vibe and don't know if what you got is working, it's probably missing the other 3 elements.
Q: Tell us about your studio setup.
A: In the box. ProTools. UAD.
