Home Studio Registry: Joe Nicholson

Future plans/projects

To continue to build and run the studio as a donation based ministry to help other artists receive quality recording services they would not otherwise be able to afford. Eventually I hope to inspire other Engineers and Producers to do the same as I have done and open donation based studios in other parts of the country.
