About

Hey…it’s JT. I used to have a formal bio on this page, but it was boring so I thought I’d write something a bit more personal and straight forward…

This site, 13 Recordings, is a mixed bag of sorts all centering around music in some way. It’s a blog as well as my production company/website/resume (see below); it contains info about my work in independent films including scoring, writing/recording theme songs and even acting in bit parts; it has a digital music store that sells albums and singles released through 13 Recordings (not to be confused with my record label Jib Machine Records); and it even has a cassette tape store that sells special release cassettes and other merchandise.

I also am available for a number of other services that are listed below. If you need anything or would like to discuss a project, hit me up through the Contact page and thanks for checking out 13 Recordings!
