Producing and recording musical goodness since 1991.
JO-MUSIK is an independent, full service recording and production facility. In operation since 1991, we have recently relocated from Los Angeles to Dallas, just minutes from downtown. As well as recording, we have extensive experience in all aspects of the writing and production of songs, as well as music for film and TV. We can assist you with the writing, playing, and/or mixing of your project. We also do custom writing jobs such as jingles, promos, industrials, and of course, songs and score.
We have just completed a major upgrade of our operating systems to the cutting edge of available recording equipment in 2014. If you're new to the business or a seasoned pro, you'll find our facilities, services and attention to detail produce results you can trust. We also do many demos by mail -- so don't worry if you're not in the Dallas area. Let us know how we can help on your project!
About Joe Milton
by Joe Milton
Like a master chef, I have spent my life learning how to cook up good music.
After leaving North Texas State University (now the University of North Texas) and touring non stop for 7 years, I settled in LA, and started making my living as a performer, writer, and studio musician. All of my own time and money was spent in some studio, writing and recording whatever project or band I was working on at the time.
To help develop my own stuff, I borrowed what I figured to be one years worth of estimated recording budget and bought a small 8-track setup. I applied what I had learned watching and asking questions in the bigger studios I had been in, and set about the task of really learning to engineer, as well as mastering the art of sequencing on a variety of free standing and computer based platforms. I still ended up blowing a bunch of dough in my usual haunts to get the sound I needed. After a while though, things started sounding pretty good at home.
Soon my friends were asking if I could produce and record their songs. That coupled with the fact that I could play and/or write most any style, prompted me to start JO-MUSIK. Thousands of projects later, JO-MUSIK has grown into a state of the art, free standing studio that can handle most any live, programmed, or combination session in a variety of formats. Recently relocated to my hometown of Dallas, Texas, we have a growing base of great players and great clients. No matter what your needs, we will produce a great sounding product, from a simple demo to a major record, for a reasonable price, with lots of spice!
We do lots of tunes by mail, with just a scratch vocal recording or sheet music for reference, and are always ready to help with any part of the writing process. A background in performance also helps give insight into what really works. We can write lyrics to your music, or music to your lyrics, and produce and record your song or project, on whatever level your budget will allow. We can do songs or album packages for a set price using our players, or we can produce your band, supplying whatever you feel you need to get it done, here or in any other studio environment you like. In addition, we know lots of folks on all levels of the industry to call on for specialized needs, and to further projects we are heavily involved with after they are done.
We have done music for film and TV (with or without video lock-up), voice over and dialogue, music for plays, live shows, jingles, industrials, videos, websites, funerals, and that's about all I can think of right now. We do take-downs, tracks, editing and some limited CD compilation and mastering. We can provide original songs for singers, as well as cues, score, background music, parodies or custom lyric writing. We also have a large catalog available of all the things previously mentioned.
Give me a call. I'll do everything I know how to make your project work. I like repeat business, and I put my heart into everything I do.
Hope to hear from you, and thanks!
