My name is Joe Reineke.
I have nearly 20 years experience as a professional producer/engineer, but my journey began as a musician in the early 80’s punk scene. By 1990, I formed The Meices (San Francisco) and went on to form Alien Crime Syndicate (Seattle) two great bands which I was the primary guitarist and songwriter. I’ve had 3 different major label recording contracts. My music has also aired in over 1,000 film and television broadcasts internationally and I received a certified Gold sales award for my song on the Empire Records soundtrack.
I have many years of touring experience and played with many great bands along the way – The Pixies, Green Day, Offspring, Cracker, Whiskey Town, No Doubt, Garbage, Deftones, Sugar Ray, Weezer, Superdrag, Nada Surf, The Killers plus many others. One of most memorable was playing guitar with Tommy Stinson (Replacements/Guns and Roses) for his US and European tour.
I opened the studio commercially in 2002 when some said it wasn’t the best idea but I had a dream and got by on what I had to work with back then and slowly built up the equipment and my skill set along the way. It sure wasn’t without a couple of mistakes that I learned from but somehow we all start from the same place, the starting line. I want to personally thank all the artists and friends that I’ve recorded, mixed and produced, it sure has been a pleasure working with you all, I’m looking forward to working with some of your again.
