Audio Engineering

After attending audio school Joey worked at Noble Street studios for 3 years learning everything there is to know about recording. He was very fortunate to be exposed to a large studio environment with big SSL 4000 consoles, all the luscious sounding vintage microphones and outboard gear you could ever dreams of and most importantly some of the biggest talent in the world. Whereas great gear can certainly make a big difference, Joey is a strong believer in good technique. He learnt from industry leading audio engineers and producers and worked with some of the biggest talents in music. After his years in a large studio he started out on my own. Using all the knowledge he has acquired over the years to make anything he records to sound the best that it can.

Audio Mixing

Audio mixing is a natural step to make for many audio engineers. When recording audio you train your ears to hear things in a very specific way. Listening for things that most people don't think about or don't immediately notice. These unnoticeable things actually have quite a large impact on how the audio is perceived. Joey has mixed a lot of music for many clients and personal projects and is confident in his abilities to take a recording to the next level and give the listener the full experience of the video or piece of music they are listening to.

Podcast Editing

Clean audio is important. There is nothing worse than trying to listen to a podcast but constantly being distracted by lip smacking or excessive breathing by the person not speaking. You want your listener to be engaged in your conversation or subject matter. This is where editing can really bring you to the next level and help you connect more with your audience.

With countless hours of editing audio in Pro Tools, Joey can help you get there. After years of experience he works fast and efficiently to give you quick a turn around time while not losing any quality.

Jingles

Though generally quite short, Jingles have the capability to be great and catchy pieces of music.
When writing a Jingle it's important to know your direction. You have to make choices early on about how long it has to be, how complex or simplistic and what kind of a vibe you're trying to encapsulate. But the most important thing is to convey the message of the product. That's what Joey uses his years of experience in music and audio recording to achieve.
He started playing classical piano at 5 years old which has given him a vast knowledge of music theory and composition. He also play guitar, vocals, bass, drums, synthesizers and organs, banjo, saxophone and a few other smaller instruments. He also operates a recording studio so he's able to provide professional custom recordings to fit your needs!
