Justin Mayo on SoundBetter

I have worked with over a dozen artists and fully produced over 20 songs. I help artists take their lyrics and voice memos, and transform them into streaming-ready songs. I specialize in making life easy for artists who are intimidated by the steps in the music-making process and want someone to partner with them in bringing their music to life!

Hello! I am a professional sound engineer based in Brooklyn, NY, USA. I began my journey in 2020 when I left my job as an accountant to be a full time mixer and musician. Since then, I have worked with over a dozen artists across a multitude of genres, doing everything from recording, mixing, and mastering, all the way to arrangement, songwriting and artist guidance!

I work on all genres of music but specialize in pop, rock, indie alternative, vocal, rap, and acoustic!

My skills and offerings include but are not limited to:
-Artist development
-Mixing (Full mix -> Volume balance, EQ, Compression, Effects, and more)
-Mastering (Standard home mastering, assistance with auto-mastering services if desired)
-Recording (I have a sound-treated recording studio)
-Editing (both mix editing and podcast editing)
-Vocal stacking and tuning

Everyone deserves to share their art with the world and when they share their art, they deserve to put their best foot forward! The most important thing to me is helping you achieve the exact sound you are looking for. I want to work with you to understand your unique sound and strive to shape the mix around your artistic intentions. I will make sure your sound is professional quality, industry-standard, and streaming-ready!

Highly recommend You work with Justin.

    Justin Mayo is the REAL DEAL!! We recorded an amazing track in 3 hours at Haus of Madusa with Justin, and he was not only professionally flawless but super fun! Justin is super fast using Logic, has a great ear, and is a good hearted human. Lily Mao and The Resonaters love Justin Mayo !!!

    Justin is one of the most compassionate creatives I’ve had the pleasure to work with. We recently produced three dynamic original songs in 30 hours time. In pre-production Justin was very intentional to deeply understand the story behind each song before building their “rooms”. He always asked “what does this song need?”, and that’s how we directed our work— everything we do, we do FOR the song. Each track was handled with so much care and creativity. I am so gracious to have been adopted by a producer who treated my music baby as their own.

    I’ve worked with Justin on 2 very different projects this post year and I am very happy with the collaboration. From setting a reasonable price and working with deadlines. He is personable, professional, and willing to set a goal for your music.
    I look forward to working with Justin in the coming year and anyone who works with him is in good hands!

    I cannot speak highly enough of Justin. He is my producer through Recording Artists Development (RAD). He makes the recording and producing process fun, he respects my artistic vision, and provides invaluable ideas to take my songs to the next level. He truly executes my vision perfectly and always offers creative & essential advice. As a producer, he is on a path of exponential growth and surprises me with new skills every time we sit down for a session. Justin is approachable and passionate, I highly recommend working with him!

    I was introduced to Justin through RAD, and he did an amazing job helping me put together my first professionally recorded cover song. He was extremely personable and a delight to work with. In addition, he is very knowledgeable, makes great suggestions, but is also dedicated to making sure you get a version of your song that you not only love, but that is the best reflection of you.

    Justin is the absolute GOAT. From start to finish he was professional and incredibly dedicated towards producing the best version of my song. He is incredibly proficient in all the aspects of production, and also is well-equipped to assist with instrumentation as well. I would highly recommend using Justin's services if you are looking for a producer who's always willing to go the extra mile!

    Justin Mayo is INCREDIBLE!!

    I had the opportunity to work with him with RAD and he is a genius. He is great at understanding and executing the artist’s vision in a creative way. He brings his own innovative ideas and expertise and brilliantly mixes them with the artist’s vision.

    I am definitely working with Justin again in the future!

    Working with Justin has been life-changing.

    It was my first experience recording and he made me feel like a total star from the very first moment. Comfortable, welcome, and appreciated.
    He was so involved with my song and invested so much of his energy in making it a total success that I soon forgot I was just a beginner and I was able to express myself fully.
    I only brought to the table my instinct and with very little musical knowledge and he transformed it into a fully realized concept that we presented through RAD.
    I highly recommend and cannot wait to work with him again and RAD.

    Justin did an amazing job recording, mixing and engineering a fairly complex track for me. Working with him was a pleasure and the final result surpassed my expectations. Our time in the studio was used really efficiently so costs were totally reasonable. I highly recommend working with him.

    Justin Mayo is one of the best mixing engineers I have ever worked with. He is kind, talented, flexible, and extremely hard working. He met with me for a session before mixing, and 2-3 sessions during the mixing process. He took my feedback with stride and made adjustments based on my needs. His own ear is also phenomenal. From my abstract vision, he used his well placed intuition to bring everything I imagined and more to fruition. He also had his own suggestions that were very on the nose and allowed for an expansion of my original thoughts and ideas. I couldn’t recommend Justin Mayo more!
