Independent prices for independent artists

I want to help you achieve the highest quality work at prices you can afford. I do most of my work with independent singer/songwriters and bands in folk and alt/indie rock. I have worked with numerous up-and-coming bands and artists around the city and I would love to add you to that list!

As an up-and-comer in the industry, I have had the experience to work at some of New York City's top studios and with some of the industry's best. On top of my freelance experience, I am currently working as a staff engineer at The Bridge Studios, Moon Recording and own/operate Corner Store Studios. I am also completing my Master's in Music Technology and my Tonmiester certificate at NYU.

During my undergrad at NYU I interned at Studio G Brooklyn under Joel Hamilton, witnessing sessions for Aaron Neville and the recording of the Grammy Nominated album "Mister Asylum" by Highly Suspect. Then as an assistant engineer at The Cutting Room Studios, I was involved in sessions for artists like Snarky Puppy and Joey Badass.

    Absolute professional here. Josh went above and beyond as a producer. Not only did he give me a final product that I'm 100% proud of, but he helped me dive further into my art and sound giving everything a layer of depth that it didn't have before. Josh helped turn me on to a lot of production techniques I hadn't heard of that ultimately have become some of my favorite. All in all, Josh not only gave me some amazing tracks, but he helped me develop as an artist in a really great way.

    Josh is a true professional and a friendly, patient, and talented engineer! Josh recorded/mixed my band's single with a quickly approaching deadline and exceeded our expectations. Highly recommended for your next project!

    I recently mastered a project for Josh and he was great to work with. The mixes came in sounding very good already, and all the project info was very well organized and easy to work with.

    He communications were very timely and effective.

    If you are looking for some recording and mixing work, I would recommend Josh very highly.

    Josh is one of the most thorough and thoughtful engineers that I have had the pleasure of working with. He tracked the drums for my solo EP and I could not have imagined a better sound for my songs. He was extremely laid back and easy to communicate with while maintaining a consistent workflow and certain quality in his ideas that allowed my dreams to become a reality.

    I’m so glad I found Josh. From our first interaction to the final delivery, Josh was professional, collaborative, friendly, and (most importantly) attentive and understanding of what I wanted to achieve. He was happy to make adjustments throughout the engagement and always responded quickly. I could not be happier with the result.

    Josh is a real professional. He helped me with the mix and master of a 30 stems song, even when we only had contact via mail - the communications were perfect. The quality amazed all the artist that worked on the song, clean mix and perfect master!

    After taking advantage of Josh's skills as an engineer and producer many times, I can confidently say that he is one of the best people you will ever work with. Josh brings an unparalleled level of professionalism to the table, in both his finished product and in all of the work and communication it takes to get there. Anything you need, Josh can accomplish it.

    Recording with Josh was the most seamless experience I've ever had in a studio. He really knows how to work with horns, and from start to finish, he got me everything I needed, when I needed it. I'd highly recommend him to anyone looking to have a productive recording session.
