Meet Sean P. Jones of Off The Square Studios in Studio City

Today we’d like to introduce you to Sean P. Jones.

Sean, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
Originally from Lincoln, Nebraska, I grew up in a musically inclined family. Thanks to my parents, who are professional musicians, I had been exposed to a broad repertoire of music from Beethoven to The Beatles. I attended the University of North Texas with a music scholarship, where I majored in Jazz and played drums in the One O’clock Lab Band. During college, I developed my passion for mixing and production.

After college, I moved out to Los Angeles to pursue a career in Music Production and Mixing.

Has it been a smooth road?
A career in music will always have its ups and downs but I wake up everyday, loving what I do. One of my professors in college said that “You don’t pick music, but it picks you.” There is nothing else that I would rather do for a living so I give it all I’ve got.

In short, there have been hard times but it’s all been worth it!

We’d love to hear more about your work and what you are currently focused on. What else should we know?
I’ve worked with many of the industry’s top artists and musicians here in LA. I have mixed for Julia Michaels, Johnny Orlando, Miguel, St. Vincent, Wyclef Jean, Nick Merico, Lauren Sanderson, Gary Clark Jr., Alx Veliz, Bridget Mindler, Eagles of Death Metal, and Zella Day, among many others.

I currently own and operate a full-service mixing/mastering facility in Studio City, California. I do a lot of freelance work for different artists, management companies and record labels.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
What I love about the music industry is that I never see it going away.

How to make money in the industry, on the other hand, is constantly changing from year to year. I always try to innovate and stay current.

The biggest shift I see in the industry is mixing and mastering for Streaming Services. iTunes and Spotify are now the main channels through which people consume music. Because of the large catalogues these companies hold, they are using different loudness algorithms to analyze music. This is monumental because it could soon mean that the “Loudness Wars” in music could come to an end. I’m super excited about what is to come in the next decade!
