Joey Sturgis


Great artists innovate, true visionaries collaborate, and the most cherished among them celebrate the culture at large, contributing the skills and knowledge they’ve accumulated to the community of likeminded creators who follow in their wake.

As an educator, speaker, and fixture in the emergent modern rock music pantheon, JOEY STURGIS draws upon the reputation as a formidable music producer he earned through trial-and-error, problem solving, and meticulous attention to detail to broaden the scope of what’s possible for his fellow music lovers. Joey Sturgis Tones develops, simplifies, and ultimately makes available the tools necessary to execute the creative visions of musicians, producers, and songwriters from any walk of life.

The determination to elicit only the strongest of performances from musicians, combined with a perfectionist attention to detail, ensures that every Joey Sturgis recording demonstrates his service to the music. Starting at a very young age, Sturgis summoned his innate gift for problem solving to develop the skills necessary to capture definitive moments in any given artists’ career, because he deeply believes music should be timeless and songs must last forever. In that same spirit, Sturgis embarked on multiple entrepreneurial ventures to share what he’s learned.

Working with CreativeLive, his fellow producers and business advisors on a variety of production education oriented projects, Sturgis enthusiastically shares his tips and tricks on preproduction, engineering, songwriting, arrangements, mixing fundamentals, common mistakes, recording, editing, automation, volume balance, and much more. He proudly puts his stamp on audio plug-ins, pod farm presents, impulse response packs, and other real world applicable products through Joey Sturgis Tones, closing the gap to make A-list recording processes more accessible.

Sturgis knows how to make music sound larger than life, digging deeply to highlight the most optimized comic book superhero version of what each musician has to offer. Nothing slips through the cracks. The fruits of his laborious process are evident in genre-defining albums, including the best work of Asking Alexandria, Of Mice & Men, We Came As Romans, Blessthefall, and The Devil Wears Prada. Building his impressive discography, Sturgis quickly found that what’s most important is the end result, the records that audiences are inspired by and connect with emotionally.
