Meet Joseph Cheek

Joseph has been transfixed by music since starting piano lessons at age 5, which lead to him becoming a professional musician before leaving school.


Working in the studio as an audio engineer was a natural progression for him - an environment where he could be surrounded by talented and creative individuals, working together to produce something to inspire others. 

Joseph has worked across almost all genres, from Big Band to Folk to Metal. However, his specialty lies in larger-than-life rock, indie and pop-rock productions, leading him to become the most sought-after engineer in Adelaide for these projects.
