Joseph Downs (he/him)

The free reign to express myself within the structure provided, as well as the consistent feedback, is very useful and encouraging.

Joseph Downs discovered his musical passion at the age of 7 when he first picked up a guitar, finding in it not just an outlet for self-expression but also a guiding force in navigating life's complexities.

Graduating with a degree in popular music, he has spent the past six years honing his craft as a full-time transcriber, drawing inspiration from diverse influences to create music that resonates deeply with audiences. Embracing production music as an extension of his passion for composition, Joseph finds joy in exploring different artistic disciplines and adapting to varying parameters, all while relishing the creative freedom afforded to him within the structured framework of MediaTracks' projects.

Joining MediaTracks on the recommendation of trusted colleagues like Kevin Fuccillo, Joseph values the opportunity to express himself freely while receiving consistent feedback and support from the team. Outside of music, he leads an active lifestyle, pursuing hobbies like bouldering and training for the Edinburgh Marathon, alongside indulging in the competitive thrill of Super Smash Bros. These multifaceted interests enrich his creative journey, inspiring him to continue crafting unique melodies that captivate audiences worldwide.
