“The versatility in the design and UI of these plugs in allows me new spaces to explore my creativity in the studio”
Sound Artist, Composer and Producer,


Joel Shearer has enjoyed a diverse, multi-decade career in the music industry. 

Joel has collaborated on numerous albums, from Alanis Morrisette’s Grammy-winning “Jagged Little Pill” to Rhye’s latest release, “Passing” as well as on film scores such as Academy Award-nominated “127 Hours” and “The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty.” Shearer’s innovative, highly textured guitar style has taken him around the world to record, tour and collaborate with artists such as Dido, Annie Lennox, Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeros, Joe Cocker, Damien Rice, Michael Buble, Sarah McLachlan, Sara Bareilles and Mylene Farmer.

As a solo artist, Shearer has released three ambient albums, “Morning Loops,” “A:tifækts” and “Hours.” Through the manipulation of an electric guitar tuned to 432 hertz, these works bypass popular song structures to create hypnotic soundscapes that experiment with the somatic effects of vibration. Shearer’s deep connection to sound and its effect on our emotional and physical states of being has led him to explore the intersections of sound and light in his current collaboration, Chromasonic.
