Scott Jacoby of Eusonia Records mixes in Pro Tools HD3 in Eusonia Studios

Grammy-winning composer, producer, engineer and label owner Scott Jacoby started the Eusonia Records label in 2007 after four of the R&B and pop artists he was working with—as composer and/or producer—were dropped by the majors. “This was a way for me to ensure that the records I believed in would actually see the light of day.” Jacoby says. His first Eusonia release was Maiysha’s Grammy-nominated This Much Is True album, a project that exemplifies Jacoby’s depth of talent and involvement in his artists’ projects. Working in his own Eusonia Studios, he played a huge percentage of the musical parts—bongos, bass, clavinet, djembe, drums, acoustic and electric guitars, organ, piano, vibes and more—in addition to co-writing all of the original tracks and serving as the engineer and producer.

Now, Jacoby and his business partner, VP Alex Bilowitz, are building a strong music-centered label and recently welcomed another partner, Grammy-nominated producer/composer/musician James McKinney, who will work with Jacoby to discover and sign new artists. New additions on the artist front include Silya and Zach Deputy.And Jacoby is busy in Eusonia Studios, a recording-in-the-control-room-type facility centered around Pro Tools HD3 and Genelec 1031A monitors. Also in his arsenal: Avalon, API, Manley and Neve mic pre’s; numerous newer and custom mics; and a toy chest of keys, synths, guitars, etc. Jacoby still works with major-label acts, but almost all of his projects pass through Eusonia Studios at some point. He says his favorite role is “control freak,” where he can write and mold a track with real instruments, but also employ virtual methods that will best serve the song and the artist.
