Joshua // Sound West Studios on SoundBetter

Creative and passion small town guitarist with big league tones. I've spent the last 15 years and hundreds of songs honing my craft on guitar, composition and recording and would love to work on your project. Rock and Metal guitar is my specialty, but I welcome all genres and projects. Let's work together and make something special!

Hello! My name is Joshua, and I am a songwriter, guitarist and studio engineer. I offer professional guitar, editing, mixing, and mastering services with the latest high quality equipment. Crafting and recording guitar solos are my specialty, which I have been developing for 15 years. As a fellow songwriter, I understand the importance that a lead or solo brings to the song: it should be well crafted, tailored to the song and improve the song, not just take up 20-30 seconds.

For guitar, I can write/record standard rhythm tracks, leads, atmospheric or otherwise. My favorite thing in the world is composing and recording rock/metal guitar solos, but I also welcome the challenge of genres! Check out my Guitar Solo reel for a feel of my style (heads up: it's kind of long, but I wanted plenty of examples for potential clients)

I am also experienced in using "unique" guitar effects such as the Whammy Pedal (Tom Morello, Muse, Buckethead) and the Talkbox (Peter Frampton, Alice In Chains)

If you are interested in having your recordings edited, mixed and mastered with professional quality in mind, don't hesitate to contact me.

For Electric Guitar Recording, I have the following available:

PRS Guitars (6,7,8 String)
Taylor Acoustic Guitars
Gibson Les Paul
Fender Strat
Diezel VH4 Amplifier, Various Marshalls
Kemper Profiler
Fractal Axe Fx 3
Digitech Whammy
Talkbox

    Another great song from Joshua is in the books! This time it was a dance rock tune. The versatility of the music he works on is astounding, and his playing fits seamlessly into every style.

    Top quality musicianship that I can't stop listening to even after the mix is done. Just an insanely infectious tune!

    Working with Joshua has been a great experience all around. Every project brings something new and exciting. The most recent song starts out as a chill ethereal tune that builds to a huge, rocking crescendo. The musicianship across the board is a joy to listen to. Great vocals, guitar, bass, and all kinds of synths added into the mix. Lots of effort and thought is put into each song. So much fun to unpack and see what's new this time!

    This is my second time collaborating with Josh. He writes the music/lyrics, and I write the melody/sing. I've really enjoyed both songs I've done with him. He writes great music and really allows me to bring my own style to the song. He communicates clearly but also allows me a lot of creative freedom. He is also very professional and responds quickly. Looking forward to future projects!

    Joshua is an absolute riff master! He had an 8-string Metal song for me to record drums to and it was a blast! Lots of different vibes packed into one song. It was a challenge to record the drums for this, for sure! But it was a great experience that I hope to repeat in the near future!

Interview with Joshua // Sound West Studios

  10. A: Typically rock and metal, but I also work on a fair amount of country, jam, pop and dance music.

  11. Q: Can you share one music production tip?

  12. A: It’s all about getting the instruments to sit well in the mix with each other - sonic harmony.

  13. Q: What's your typical work process?

  15. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  16. A: Creativity and passion.

  17. Q: Which artist would you like to work with and why?

  18. A: Truthfully, any inspiring musician excites my musical sense. But I would love to write with Matt Bellamy of Muse.

  19. Q: How would you describe your style?

  20. A: My guitar fundamentals are peppered with hints of Zeppelin, Muse, Slash and Metallica. The last several years I’ve made an effort to diversify my playing, and always welcome the challenge of a less familiar style or genre.

  21. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?

  22. A: I’ve been playing guitar since i was a young teenager, songwriting since 2007 and and I started studying recording in 2009 and opened a small studio in 2013, and a more legit studio in 2018.

  29. Q: What's the biggest misconception about what you do?

  40. A: Check out the reviews I have left :)
