Call me Jo

(pronounced "yo")

I am a Composer, Arranger, and Performer. Most of my work is in Film and Television, but occasionally I do things like Merge The Star Spangled Banner and Stars and Stripes Forever or play the piano with knives. You can read more about me, hear some music, or check out my studio below. Thanks for visiting!

Film, TV & more

Some of my recent projects include orchestrating/arranging John Legend's "All of Me" Tour, Ben Folds' Piano Concerto, scoring the Lionsgate film Rapture-Palooza, starring Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect, Up In the Air), orchestrating and conducting the feature films "Ouija", "The Possession", and "Rabbit Hole" (starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart), as well as the epic seven-part global programing event "Great Migrations," which aired on the National Geographic Channel and won a News and Documentary Emmy® for music and sound.


Joachim Horsley's Lookout

The Lookout is my recording studio. Because I track piano, drums, percussion, string ensembles, acoustic guitars, woodwinds, and brass on a regular basis, I need a recording space that makes small and medium forces sound big, bold, and balanced. Thanks to the help of veteran studio designer Steve Durr (Austin City Limits, MCA Records Nashville, and private studios for Mark Ronson and Lenny Kravitz) the Lookout is exactly that.
