• About the recording studio

    Waysound is a commercial recording studio in Fox River Grove, IL. The business was originally established in 2002 in Cary, IL under the name JPL Records by founder Justin P. LeBreck. As the business grew they re-located in 2009 to Fox River Grove. With the move, LeBreck had a strong desire to align his business vision with his product and new location by creating a long lasting brand under the new name Waysound. The business flourished and now proudly serves the Chicagoland area and beyond working with many happy clients.

Justin LeBreck

  • Owner & Producer

     

    Waysound was created by producer/engineer Justin LeBreck, a graduate of Saint Mary's University with a degree in Music Recording Technology. Music has been a passion for Justin from a very young age; studying piano, guitar, and vocal performance.

    Justin has worked alongside Grammy winning artists and engineers producing and recording for hundreds of clients. Through his experience, Justin is able to fully understand both the music theory and technical variations in music and production which lead him to create Waysound.

    “You won’t find another studio that matches our commitment
    to quality, comfort, and great customer service”– Justin LeBreck

    With the expansion of the music industry to the Chicago suburbs, Justin is bringing his dream of the once unrealistic studio prices down to a level to which every artist, writer, producer, and filmmaker can afford.

Jake Fontana

Now production assistant here at Waysound Recording, Jake handles everything from mixing and recording music to video production and graphic design as well.

Steve Firak

  • Audio/Video Engineer

     

    Steve graduated from Columbia College Chicago with a B.A in Audio, Arts and Acoustics. Over the last 15 years, he’s recorded albums for artists from alt rock (The Sunshine Boys) to experimental Americana (The Georgia Rae Family Band), audio books (Grammy Winning Storyteller Jim May) to sound design in a sit-com (Upstaged: The Series). Songwriting has been a natural result of working with and for many artists. This culminated in the creation of songs from jazz to heavy metal, from a cappella to orchestral music.

     

    Steve has produced videos and music for individuals, local businesses and mutli-national corporations. An amazing experience was the completion of a documentary on Chester Gould, the creator of Dick Tracy, filming over a hundred hours of footage over 7 years. It was aired on Chicago’s PBS (WTTW). As an audio engineer/producer at Waysound, Steve looks forward to putting his skills to use to help artists with their art while expanding his own understanding of sound, film and storytelling.
