Josh Couvares is a recording engineer, singer-songwriter, and musician based out of Brooklyn. Having taught himself piano at the age of twelve, Josh has been passionately pursuing music ever since. Over the course of his career, he's honed not only his craft as an instrumentalist but also his ability to capture music, working with the likes of Charlie Stavish (Jenny Lewis, Interpol, Weezer) and Robin Schmidt (The 1975, The Japanese House, Ben Howard). With over 15 years of experience, Josh has helped bring many artists' projects to life, and he's confident he can bring yours to life too.
A multi-instrumentalist and composer, Josh is talented at building songs from the ground up. “I love it when someone comes in with a simple melody or a page of rough lyrics and I get to help them construct an original song from scratch. It's a thrill to help singers at any level develop their song idea, beginning with the simplest beat, a chord progression, the melody and hook, followed by all the instrumentation and effects. When ideas start to gel and sounds pour out of the speakers it's always electrifying.”
Josh delivers NYVC clients polished mixes that are the standard in today's media landscape using the highest quality equipment in a hybrid analog/digital recording rig. “As a recording artist myself, I know exactly how meaningful it is for a client to feel satisfied with the mix they plan on listening to over and over, present on social media or submit for bookings. I encourage everyone booking a recording session with me to Learn More ahead of our session, like tips on session prep, background on recording equipment and techniques and answers to your frequently asked questions about mixing, mastering, microphones and more.”
Josh also produces music videos and can consult with NYVC clients about artist development strategy, including web site creation, social media cultivation, press kits, booking and pitch letters along with other helpful resources.
