BIO
I have been in love with music since I was a child. In my earlier years I indulged in the joy of playing many different instruments. I immersed myself musically both in school and out. At a very young age I decided I would dedicate my life to a career in music, no matter what obstacles I encountered.
In 1997 as a young high schooler I took my first step by interning at a small jingles studio called Red House Music. While working there I had an opportunity to assist in writing that years team song for the New Jersey Nets.  Initially I was included solely to provide a 'youthful perspective' for the older staff writers, who were commissioned to write a young/current-sounding hip hop track. In the end I wrote and produced all the music and lyrics myself.  I was promoted to assistant engineer and continued to work their for the remainder of the year, working on several projects for large brands (i.e. Coca Cola, Toyota, NBC, etc.)
The following year I landed an internship at the famous D&D recording studio where I learned more than I could have dreamed regarding recording and production in the mainstream music world. I was able to sit in on sessions with some of Hip Hops biggest legends and was present during the creation of some of the most classic Hip Hop albums of the 90's.  I worked there until I decided to go to college to further my knowledge and passion for music.
In 2003 I graduated from the Oberlin Conservatory where I designed an interdisciplinary double major, combining composition, music theory, music technology, and sound design.
After graduation I moved to San Francisco where I worked at several studios.  By day I was a recording/mixing engineer, a synth programmer, and producer for various local artists and bands. By night, I was a DJ with a modest following and fatigued ears. I continued to DJ all over the country for the next few years. Through a life built around music, I could fully immerse myself in pop and indie music culture.
In 2007, I began writing music for several CBS television programs including (CSI, NCIS, and others).  Also during this time I began freelance composing and arranging jingles for nationally televised commercials.
In 2013 I moved back to New York, and began remixing songs for DAS Entertainment (Fergie, Sean Paul, Juicy J).  Through Das I remixed International Superstar Prince Royce's "Darte Un Beso", which was released by Sony Music.
I continue to write music for television, and am currently involved in composing, arranging, and orchestrating an upcoming EDM broadway musical.
I am the creator of Blank Canvas Music. We provide production, recording, mixing, and songwriting services for artists and bands of all caliber's.

It’s Jo Holladay Mixtape

This is my mashup I made in the summer of 2004. Its a mix of some of the greatest hiphop tracks of all- time, mashed with the original tracks they sampled from.  I put this together as a showcase of the bridge from the old styles to the new.
