Joel Ward

Multi-genre Mixing & Mastering

Joel Ward on SoundBetter

As an actively performing professional musician, I have a vast understanding of what it is to be a musician and how situations between musicians and engineering counterparts should be approached. I will take your art to the next level and polish it to match your musical ambitions to the best of my ability, without compromises or excuses.

I am a Finnish-English audio engineer and musician. With a deep knowledge of recording and mixing in countless genres ranging from classical to rock, jazz to pop and metal to folk, I have gathered a substantial repertoaire of different genres I feels "at home" working with, while constantly seeking to learn something new every day to further nourish my craft.

Born into a family with deep roots in western classical music on one side and traditional English folk on the other, I boast a strong identity as a versatile musician and a professional. As a classically trained trumpet player, later electric bass student in pop & jazz and currently working actively as a professional choir singer in the top professional choirs in Finland, I approach all of my engineering work from an artistic starting point, being it recording a symphony orchestra or mastering a noise music album. This very personal identity enables me to make the best out of my work as a recordist, mixer and mastering engineer.
