Joe is great to work with! Kind, professional, and the tracks always turn out great,
As a Film Director, I can assure you that working with Joe Sanders is one of the greatest possible decisions you can make for your films. He is not only an incredibly talented musician who has a deep understanding of instruments and music theory but is also an artist, deeply in touch with the emotions and soul of every project he works on. His passion and love for the craft shines through as his music elevates the film, giving it the sonic subtext needed to make it the best that it could be.
I was so lucky to have one of my filmmaking colleagues recommend Joe to me. I was struggling to find the right composer for the project and I'm happy to say that Joe was the PERFECT partner. He even helped to find outside vocalists for the project as well.
Joe is extremely professional and went above and beyond on this one!

Interview with Joe Sanders
Q: What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A: Reference tracks can be a very helpful start to the collaborative process!
Q: What type of music do you usually work on?
A: Cinematic music, film scores, video game scores, and orchestral backing tracks.
Q: Analog or digital and why?
A: Both are great in the right applications. The digital audio production tools we have now are so refined to the point where you can basically make anything sound like anything. But classic analog equipment will always have a place in my studio because of the unique sonic palettes that physical gear offers.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: Storytelling though music has always been what I love most about this job.
Q: What questions do you ask prospective clients?
A: How would you like the audience to feel when experiencing this music?
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: At some point while playing in student orchestras as a kid I got bit by the composing bug and I haven't looked back since. A couple years into getting my composing degree at the Bob Cole Conservatory at California State University, Long Beach I started interning for Mark Phillips, a veteran composer for TV shows. Seeing him work and interact with clients gave me true insight into how people succeed in the music industry. From there on I hit the pavement and said yes to a lot of opportunities in additional music writing, orchestrating, and contracting studio recording sessions, which in turn led to more leadership roles like composing and music production. I still regularly work with new clients and always prioritize building community in the arts.
Q: Can you share one music production tip?
A: Get honest, direct feedback from your peers. Having the courage to do that can really open some doors.
Q: What's your 'promise' to your clients?
A: That I take every piece of music I work on extremely seriously.
Q: How would you describe your style?
A: Passionate, heavily melodic, and eclectic. I have musical influences all over the map.
