A music lover since childhood, Joe Lambert “heard the call” early and has never looked back. Playing in bands eventually led him to attend Full Sail University to pursue engineering.

After working his way up and paying dues at several facilities, Joe became the house engineer at New York’s Ground Zero Studios in 1995, doing audio mastering as well as live recording, mixing, tracking, sequencing and re-mixes. Then, in 1999, he moved to Classic Sound as a full-time mastering engineer.

In March of 2005, Joe joined Trutone Mastering Labs in its midtown Manhattan studio that was built in the same space as the now famous Record Plant. While working there, Joe was able to gain experience cutting vinyl. Some of his vinyl work includes Dropkick Murphy’s, The Revenant Soundtrack, Earth Wind and Fire, Johnny Cash, Wye Oak, Billy Holiday, Joe Satriani, Social Distortion, Day of The Dead and Savak.

Joe opened JLM in 2008 in DUMBO Brooklyn and solidified his place as one of the most sought after mastering engineers in New York. Now in Westchester County, he continues to add to his worldwide client base, working with a wide variety of record labels, producers and artists including Lindsey Stirling, The Black Crowes, Sharon Van Etten, The National, Deerhunter, The B-52’s, Wye Oak, Daughters, Stephen Sondheim, Animal Collective, The Smithereens, Warren Haynes, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Marc Broussard, Black Dice, Angelo Badalamenti, The Juan Maclean, Tall Tall Trees, The Bottle Rockets, Don Byron, Steve Gunn, Alice Cooper, of Montreal, Mandy Patinkin, Amber, Stephen Lynch, Moby, City and Colour, Nicolas Jaar and many more.

Joe has gained a huge reputation for having a wide-ranging set of skills, and is equally adept at mastering pop, hip hop, rap, jazz and classical. His attention to detail, technical know-how and built-in musicianship make him the ideal audio mastering engineer for virtually any music genre as musicians, producers, and labels around the world have discovered.
