Mason Jar Music is production company and creative collective with studios in New York City and Nashville, TN. Founded as an umbrella for a community of music-makers in Brooklyn in 2010, the company has grown to represent a diverse group of award-winning composers, record producers, and video directors.
People often ask us why we chose the symbol of the Mason jar to represent our company, and what we mean by "Preserving analog principles in a digital age." To us, the tool of the cottage-industry canner is an apt metaphor for what we hope to capture through our ongoing collaborative work.
"Analog principles" is our short-hand term for the qualities that we value most in the art that has influenced us: hard work, collaboration, a reverence for the creative process, and above all, a deep desire to capture and convey the richness of the human condition.
We're thrilled by the potential that has been unlocked by the advent of the digital age, but we hope to use the tools and technology at our disposal to celebrate and amplify the raw qualities that make humans so great -- not sanitize, mask, or mechanize them.
Since our inception, we've had the privilege of serving as the creative directors on projects that featured many of our heroes. Our films and music projects have taken us around the world. In 2012, after our collaborations with Grammy-winning artist Feist, Mason Jar Music was named the world's 6th most innovative music company by Fast Company Magazine.
We're thankful for these accolades and opportunities, and we're proud of the work we have done together. But ultimately, as our logo reminds us, we're still just striving to perfect and deliver our own homemade blend of creative inspiration.
