Justin Schubert

Austin, Texas
Hi, my name is Justin Schubert and I was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin, then moved to Austin Texas in 2009 for audio engineering school. After I graduated I was hired by a post-production studio and mixed audio for radio and TV commercials.  After getting laid off I started freelancing by doing live sound on the road and at a couple music venues in downtown Austin and have been doing that ever since.  I also run a small home studio for various recording projects and conduct artist recordings for Sing Me A Story.

Ben Schummer
Cincinnati, Ohio 

I have been a musician since 1995, playing guitar and singing in various bands in Cincinnati, Ohio. I earned a degree in audio/video production in 2015. I enjoy working with local musicians and filmmakers to offer affordable recording solutions as well as mixing and mastering services. If I'm lucky, I even get to produce the occasional music video.
When I'm not enjoying music, I'm watching horror movies.
Matt Holmes
Chicago, Illinois
Matt Holmes is a recording engineer and producer from Chicago, Il. A life-long musician, Matt attended the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University where he graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Recording Arts in 2012. Afterward, Matt continued his passion for all things audio by recording bands, touring nationally with his own bands and working in post-production. After over a decade of making records on nights and weekends, Matt decided to leave the post-production world and opened his own studio The Echo Mill in 2016. When Matt isn't sitting behind his console or his drum kit, you can probably find him tinkering away in his woodshop, cooking, or when he can - traveling and fishing.
