Guitars & fretted instruments

Joel -guitars, slide, mandolin on SoundBetter

Add electric and acoustic guitars, slide, dobro, resonator, mandolin, and banjo to your recording. Professionally recorded with an awesome analog recording chain.

I've toured and recorded with Birds of Chicago, Amelia Curran, Matt and Jill Barber, Great Lake Swimmers, Royal Wood, Jessica Mitchell, The Lovelocks, Aviva Chernick, and many others.

I maintain a project recording studio in Toronto where I send parts out remotely to artists and film composers. I've been fortunate to record with many different singer/songwriters. Please check out my discography at

Interview with Joel -guitars, slide, mandolin

  1. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  2. A: I have a dedicated project studio. It's a vibey, creative space, that sounds beautiful and is filled with excellent gear. I keep all of my instruments here set up and ready to record. On the technical side, I have a range of microphones (condensers, ribbons, dynamics) to choose from, some beautiful preamps (Grace), and a rock solid RME interface.

  3. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  4. A: I work with singer/songwriters layering fretted instruments on their songs. Sometimes it's just a single electric guitar part, other times the song calls for a more lush arrangement with layers of guitars and/or resonator and mandolin. It's fun picking out the right instrument colors to support the song.
