Joe Ando on SoundBetter

I am an old school type of guy that remembers when film scoring used live instruments and a rhythm section. I am interested in working on small but meaningful projects.

A native of New Jersey, Joe grew up with a variety of musical styles and influences from progressive rock, R&B and fusion. He combined those influences at the University of Southern California into the world of Film Scoring. Studying with some of the biggest names in composition and performance gave Joe a very schooled approach. He can now pull from many sources when producing music. He is a drummer, keyboard player, songwriter, arranger and conductor. He fears being typecast into any one particular style when writing, but a listener can always hear his audio fingerprints on anything he does. “I prefer to be a chameleon, that way I can be a part of the different styles of music I enjoy”. Coming from a heavy instrumental background, Joe tends to write “from the bottom up” with the melody lines being derived from the harmonic structure of the tune.
Music critics have described his sound as “progressive pop”, ranging from groove oriented tunes to more dramatic ballads.
