Berklee certified musician, and music producer, I will help you get the best out of your songs!
My skills include modern songwriting (melodies and lyrics), audio recording, mixing and mastering as well as guitar playing.
I have a 15+ experience in the world of music and followed lessons in advanced musical theory, advanced musical harmony, songwriting (melodic and lyrical), arrangement, electric guitar and acoustic guitar playing and keyboard playing (mainly for recording sessions).
I continued my passion for music by entering the world of music production 10+ years ago. I took several advanced courses and keep working on myself in this never ending field where experience is what matters most.
With me you can start from scratch, from songwriting to the mastering process. My recording studio has the ability to incorporate any instrument you wish for and even voices (especially for film scoring). You can also simply hire my services for guitar playing in any of your songs.
In my profile you can see the offering price for each service alone. For a bundle (2 or more services together), the price will be readjusted.

It was a real pleasure working with Joe on my track, I needed efficient quick and high-quality mastering for my song, Joe is very reactive, very experienced and delivered the song within 24hrs which was perfect. Will definitely work with him for my next track. Now I am happy that the song is ready for release.
