Joe said, “I just remember working on many interesting projects… it taught me so much about recording and music it was knowledge that I considered priceless”.

After Graduating from Northeastern, Joe free-lanced for a few recording studios but could never get consistent work as a freelance engineer. So after a year of Freelancing Joe started Innovative Music Studios in his Manhattan apartment. The studio in the apartment worked well it was a studio that was only promoted thru word of mouth.
