Independent prices for independent artists
I want to help artists achieve the highest quality work at prices they can afford. I have worked in genre-spanning works, but do most of my work with independent singer/songwriters and bands. 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. 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.
Now working to complete my Master's degree and Tonmeister certificate at NYU, I am working as a staff engineer at Moon Recording for artists like Patafunk and Rico Davis and as a freelance engineer and producer.

Reviews (10)Endorse Josh Liebman
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!
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.
It was a blast working with Josh! Always open to other points of views. Also very attentive and professional during our session.
I have worked with Josh on multiple occasions and it has been a really positive experience every time. Josh creates very comfortable and professional working environments, and gives a lot of attention to details.
Josh is a dope artist, as well as a great engineer. He has done professional work engineering some of my tracks and they turned out awesome! If you need quality mixing and mastering, Josh is your guy!
Josh is a great guy to work with and is a true professional. He mastered several tracks of mine and did a fantastic job. Highly recommended!
Interview with Josh Liebman
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both. There are things that each domain does better than the other and being able to use them together is a must-have skill.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: My promise is to make their vision a reality, whatever that vision may be.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I like that moment when the artist's vision is finally realized. I like being able to help people reach for a dream of theirs.
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Take your time and pick the right person. Meshing well with whoever you decide to work with is just as important as how skilled and talented they are.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Find a signature that is unique to you, whether it be a signature reverb style or certain instruments that not many people use. Find something that people hear and say "ah, I know who produced this."
