About FunkJoint Studio
Maybe you've heard this one: It's the ear, not the gear.

Every musician has a sonic journey they draw on to perform on the stage or in the studio. We find common ground in musical legends and take pride in uncovering little-known gems. And of course, we all hope to create great music ourselves. As powerful and useful as sound technology has become, it still all boils down to what we hear and how we perform music and in both these things, the value of an experienced ear is paramount.

Many projects have unique goals and challenges and at FunkJoint Studio we want to put our ears and resources to work for you to help you meet those.

Of course FunkJoint Studio is equipped to produce quality demo's, EPs and Live Off-the-Floor Recordings. 24 independent analog channels including 20 XMAX Class A mic preamps can accomodate almost any band for live recording and streaming with 4 independent auxiliary mixes that can serve up to 12 headphone output lines (including 3 dedicated wireless).

The recording space is a comfortable room that lends itself to collaboration, treated just right to provide a naturally warm and suprisingly retro sound.

About Sauvelm

Biography

Hello, thanks for being here!

My name is Sauvelm and music has been ingrained into me from my time in the womb. Growing up I was always either listening to or playing music. I'm a classically trained pianist (The Royal Conservatory) with an in-depth knowledge of music theory and a deep love of jazz, blues and improvisation. I'm a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with an appreciation for many genres. My ear (and a limitless appetite for great music) has remained my trusted guide in performing on stage and recording in-studio with over 15 years experience.

I have lived in Saskatoon since 2010 and am a proud father and loving husband. I'm a full-time member of 3 Saskatoon bands (FunkJoint, Johnny Don't, Living Colour) and am an experienced session player in many others. I've learned that Saskatoon, like much of Canada has a rich music culture that I am happy to be a part of and look forward to help grow even more.
