I'm a producer, a recording/mix engineer, a songwriter and a musician. Sometimes it's for an artist, sometimes for a company, and sometimes to scratch a creative itch. I've got a really amazing group of producers and writers that decided to join me in creating JTL Group. We love what we do!
I started playing drums at the age of 2. Started my first band and recording at the age of 9. Signed my first indie record deal at 17. Been making records for 20 years. I plan on making music until I drop.
From the up and coming indie artist to a major label artist, I like working on great music with great people.

Reviews (16)Endorse Jared Logan - JTL Group
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jared and his team. He was timely, showed patience and communicated frequently. Not only is he a very talented producer, he's an even better human being. Hire this man, you won't be disappointed.
Jared produced two singles for me, and I couldn't be happier with the songs or the experience. He is incredibly gifted. He was able to produce my music in a way that took it up several levels, all the while keeping my unique sound and preferences. I highly recommend him.
I've spent many long days in the studio with Jared while he worked with artists from many different genres; his humility gives him the freedom to follow the best idea in the room, rather than just his own. He has a work ethic that few people can sustain. I've never once seen an artist leave unhappy, they always look forward to the next project.
Jared is a super talented and intuitive producer. I've had the joy of working with him in the studio for the last three years. I've seen him on countless projects with the widest array of artistic stylings. He has the vision and forethought to direct a song into what it is supposed to be. Expect integrity, professionalism and mega creativity!
I've known Jared for years. He was the killer drummer in Jazz Band in school. He became the friend, musical companion and engineer for my first, and second album. He played drums on both. I have a thousand good things to say about Jared and his abilities but there isn't space. Use Jared, you will not regret it. I'd work with Jared any time, ever.
I've loved my experience of working with Jared and the JTL Group and highly recommend his services. I've done numerous projects with him and always leave feeling like I not only produced a record, but also grew as an artist and songwriter.
In all of my career of 20+ years of recording and having worked with many producers on 40+ projects I can say with confidence that Jared Logan and the staff at JTL are simply the BEST! I don't know anyone else that can do what Jared can do and as quickly. He has brought so much of the music in my head the life in ways that do not disappoint!
I have been in the studio with many producers and engineers over the last 20 years but few have the speed, creativity and genuine care for their craft that Jared does. He always creates an environment that helps the artist reach higher and has a way of pulling out the best in an individual. Highly recommended.
JTL is an amazing group thats genuinely dedicated to what they do. Jared goes over and beyond and takes great care in every detail of each project to make sure it's the best it can be! I look forward to working on more projects with Jared and the JTL group!
I'm a huge fan of Jared both as a person and as a professional. He's so thorough in his process but never misses an opportunity to help the artist see the potential they have. It's taught me so much just being able to collab with him on projects. Always a learning experience!
Most of you reading this know that experiencing stress is one of the most counter-productive factors in a studio setting. This was one of the most conducive-to-creativity environments that I have ever recorded in. I've done a handful of projects with Jared and I'm looking forward to the next.
The ear and the quickness of concepts melodies and music ideas Jared has, is insane.
Right when you get to JTL you feel at home, I've done all my major projects there. It's how music making should be. Jared and the JTL group, will be apart of the rest of my career. You won't be let down!
I recorded an EP in 2015 from the ground up with the JTL group. From the music processes to the writing. Everystep with them was smooth and for the most part flawless. I don't know if it's the lava lamp :), but lyrically and musically, all my track came together like magic. Jared is very good at what he does. You won't be disappointed.
I've had the opportunity to work with Jared at JTL and the passion that he puts into his projects is second to none! Never settling for less, he always pursues each project with a steady focus to push the record to its fullest potential. His ear for production and mixing is impeccable. Definitely one of the best I've ever come across!
I've recorded several projects with Jared starting back in 2012, and have spent countless hours in the studio since. Jared Logan is everything you should look for in a producer. Creative genius, technician master and incredible visionary with every project. The best in the buisness.
After recording my first single with JTL in 2013 and EP in '14 I was hooked. I can remember how intentional Jared and his team were during the process. They weren't just dedicated to making a good track for their business but took the time to invest in me as an artist; three years later nothing's changed. Choose JTL for your project needs!
