Bio
Professional Mix Engineer Josh Hayward is a graduate of Mediatech Institute in Austin, TX for recording arts and music business.

Trained in Willie Nelson's former Arlyn Studios; Josh raised his skills exponentially. He has also worked on consoles such as API, SSL, Midas, Yamaha, Avid, Presonus and more. Extensive studio experience means that you are in the right hands from start to finish paired with extensive gear knowledge means that your music can be sculpted to achieve any sound you desire.

He is also an A&R with Palace Music Group's digital distribution services and can help you achieve the exposure needed to gain traction in the music world along with his music marketing classes to boost your music marketing endeavors and reach the top of Google. He was formerly the engineering educator and SEO optimizer for the prestigious Pinnacle College in Allhambra, CA.

Josh believes that you must both have a COLLABORATION to succeed in this industry. What matters most is that the artist walks out with a smile as to how their music sounds; he does not let record labels or other individuals stand in the way between a successful album or just a single recording.



"We must reach an understanding of our goals as a unit. Pre-production is a very intimate and important phase to how the entire album or song will sound. If you know exactly what you want even better, if you don't, I will help your visions come to fruition.

The package deals other production services offer will NOT get you the quality you desire. You owe it to yourself and your music to put quality along with budget. Never be desperate enough to spend less, just to spend even MORE in the future to get what you desire. Do it once and do it right is my motto!"
