International Sock Monkey Joseph Barker Columbus INTERNATIONAL SOCK MONKEY makes music for film, television, and theatre and specializes in producing and recording independent artists. Main music monkey Joseph Barker has written music for Google, Amazon, Showtime, MTV, Bulgari, and the Vancouver Film School, scored two short films, written and produced songs on twelve albums for eight different artists, and composed the music and lyrics for a full length musical. He's studied piano and theory his whole life and has a degree in philosophy, which entitles him to be very comfortable writing in the third person. He geeks out over recording gear but deep down believes a good song beats an expensive mic any day. He likes a well-planned recording session but always leaves room for happy accidents and wacky ideas. He likes travelling with his band, Bella Ruse, but is excited to be home in Columbus at the moment.
