Years of working across many styles of music allows me to deliver the best possible sound with the personal touch you know and love. No matter the genre, I will take the time to provide a hand-crafted mix that you and your fans will love! It's no surprise that the vast majority of my clients come back again and again.

The majority of my work revolves around mixing for remote clients, but if you are in the VA area I can provide production and recording services as well. My studio is a dedicated space outfitted with impeccable monitoring; translation of your mix has never been easier!

    Josh recorded two songs for me during the Month of March....which were beautiful. The one had cello added to it. Josh puts his heart in the song as have some others i've met on SoundBetter...and it makes the difference between nice..and beautiful. thank you for doing what I can't.

    Unbelievable artist. Josh took my song, and saw the true story In it, the way it should be seen, enhancing what I started with. He is faithful to giving you 200% of something you will not believe as a finished product. An artist and craftsman of extraordinary talent. What an honor to work with!! This will not be the last song we do!! :-)

    It was a real pleasure to work with Josh. I hired him to sing on one of my productions. He easily understands directives and ideas. His voice is amazing, a true singer and not only. If you are looking for someone who gives all Josh is the right person !

    Very helpful, responsive and skilled in finish mixing and mastering. This was my first job on SoundBetter. j2 Music Productions treated me like I was a long time pro and the results were excellent.

    A five star rating still can't define the experience I've had with Josh Woods. His knowledge of the music industry is one thing, but it's the genuine care he has for his clients in addition to his skill that makes him unique. Josh puts in 100% and refuses to settle for anything but the best sound. I highly recommend giving him a shot.

    J2 is extremely talented and versatile in all genre's of music. From contemporary all the way to rock and hip hop. J2 can absolutely do it all. If you need him to perform, mix or master he has the skills to do so. Not only is he talented enough to exceed your expectations musically, he is a true professional. I highly recommend his services.

  • Default-avatarover 1 year agoby

    J2 music is wildly skilled and knowledgable in all aspects of record production. Hired him for mastering and he is not only talented but also very professional. Highly recommended.

Interview with Josh Woods

Tell us about your studio setup.
My studio is a comfortable room specifically outfitted for mixing, mastering, and overdubbing projects. First priority for me was getting the acoustics and monitoring right. Mixes that sound good in here, sound good everywhere!
What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?
I like the extremes in music. Extremely dense arrangements and textures contrast nicely with my other down-to-earth, singer-songwriter sensibilities. I love Coldplay's Parachutes record; it hits all the right spots for me. I also love contemporary jazz/fusion groups such as Snarky Puppy and Dirty Loops. It's always a pleasure listening to well-crafted arrangements played by talented musicians. Talent is inspiring; lately I've been listening to James Blake. Very cool stuff!
What's your 'promise' to your clients?
I promise my dedication, dependability, and determined resolve to see your project through to completion in a timely and effective manner.
How would you describe your style?
I would like to think that I am at the mercy of my client for this. Any "style" that I impart to the songs I work on is merely an amplification of the style that was already existing in the material. Part of my job is to highlight and display the style of the song in the best possible light.
What do you bring to a song?
As a musician myself, I bring a strong musical sensibility to the table. Drawing inspiration from everything that I have experienced in both producing and performing music gives me a keen sense on what works and what does not.
What's your typical work process?
I will listen to a song and try to reduce it down to its most basic components. A lot of times a song I receive lacks focus for the listener by trying too many things at once. By listening for these important elements from the drop, I can provide a better mix that creates a natural journey for the listener to experience over and over again.
Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.
Mixing and Mastering quantify the majority of my work but the majority of my larger projects are full production jobs, which I love because I get to see the songs in their original form and work side by side with the artist to achieve their personal vision!
