Jamhouse Creative

At the heart of the operation is respected recording industry identity Garry Smith whose experience as composer, producer, arranger, writer and director spans nearly three decades. Garry’s production skills have been integral to the success of countless national and international advertising campaigns. His work has also underpinned television series and film projects. While garnering literally scores of awards for his achievements in advertising, he has also found time to nurture a new generation of recording artists and to produce a host of creative albums.

Renowned for evocative soundtracks and albums that capture mood, atmosphere and a sense of narrative, Garry insists that his success owes much to the talented team that surrounds him. Indeed, long experience in the music industry has enabled close working relationships with a diverse network of operatives whose collective skills cover every possible contingency. The Jamhouse family includes both classically-trained and jazz-oriented arrangers as well as young artists accomplished in hip-hop, electro, pop, dubstep, drum n bass, rock, funk, soul and indie styles.

Highly regarded music industry veterans and youthful music production graduates (some of whom Garry taught during stints as a university lecturer at QUT) work harmoniously, shoulder to shoulder. The result is happy mix of seasoned professionalism and the fresh, sometimes quirky, ideas born of youthful exuberance – overseen, guided and monitored by Garry at every point and turn. It’s a buzzy and effective way to enhance any endeavour. Music is about communication – and the Jamhouse team connects with a broad spectrum of socio-economic groupings.

As a producer, Garry’s special talent is bringing out the best in a performer. He has the knack of creating a relaxed vibe in the studio and the ability to capture those positive feelings. Only the most accomplished sound engineers and musicians enjoy his employ. The quest for excellence is pursued from conception to realisation – until the finished work has been delivered. Jamhouse is the place to go for a great result. Jamhouse credo begins with a dedication to quality. Add talent and know-how – and prepare for an outcome that exceeds even the highest expectations. Ultimately, Jamhouse is about music…but music with a purpose.

Explain your purpose to Garry - and Jamhouse will do the rest. Let Jamhouse create and shape music that perfectly fits your needs. Long experience in music production for advertising has given Garry an instinct for what sells as well as for music that sounds great.

At Jamhouse, all bases are covered.

Jamhouse Creative owes its genesis to Suite 16 Audio Productions – a respected and highly successful Brisbane – based production house that set new benchmarks for advertising industry sound tracks through the 1980s and into the 1990s. At the heart of Suite 16’s success stood composer/producer Garry Smith who, as creative director, nurtured the studio from humble beginnings to undisputed eminence as Queensland’s music and sound design HQ.

Jamhouse Creative

What began as a modest 16-track recording facility evolved into a purpose-built 24 track analogue studio equipped with state-of-the-art recording gear, a dedicated programming room equipped with the then revolutionary Fairlight computer musical instrument. To listen to radio or watch television in Queensland in those days was to hear Suite 16 tracks promoting Fourex, Tooheys, DB Draught, Telstra, Toyota, GMH, Gold Lotto, and Mirage Resorts: brands whose jingles became as familiar as pop hits of the day.

Under Garry’s guidance, Suite 16’s award-winning run continued until 1997 when profound changes in the recording and advertising industries forced a new direction. To meet the challenge, Garry established a digitally-based studio within his family home. Because his house happened to be pink, Garry named his new venture Pinkhouse Productions. In the following years, he garnered another swag of advertising awards and plaudits for tracks produced for commercials, live shows and television series.

En route to the present, Garry turned his hand to writing and producing music for a computer game. He also began mentoring up-and-coming singer-songwriters, recording young artists, producing promising bands and lecturing at Brisbane’s QUT Creative Industries faculty. He became deeply impressed by the new wave of emerging talent – and now brings his wealth of knowledge and experience to the Jamhouse group of writers, arrangers, producers, singers, musicians and recording technicians.

The result is a fresh, new approach that is right for today: a highly professional blend of matured experience and new generation zest – ready and willing to propel your message precisely where it needs to go.

Excellent outcomes require exceptional people – and Jamhouse has the right stuff.
