About Jimmy Hoyson

In 1984, Jimmy Hoyson left Pittsburgh for Los Angeles with little more than his guitar and $100 in his pocket. This serendipitous move would catapult Hoyson through a successful, ongoing career in the music industry employing a meticulous production style in the studio and a roaring passion for music in life.

Today, Hoyson is exactly where he wants to be: discovering and working with exciting new talent as Chief Engineer of Pittsburgh’s “The Vault Recording Studio”. As a nationally-travelling freelance producer and sound engineer, Hoyson stays on the pulse of the industry while working with Pittsburgh-based film production companies on their scores and soundtracks.

His clients continue to be an endless list of renowned and upcoming artists from the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Michael Jackson to Lou Reed and B.B. King. In addition, he has extensive experience working on film and television scores, 7th HeavenUgly Betty8 Simple RulesThe Wedding SingerAce Ventura and Walk the Line to name a few.

In 2018, Jimmy became a partner of Penn Film Group, a motion picture company that specializes in the development, production and marketing of feature films. Jimmy is excited to continue working on scores and soundtracks for film as he did in L.A. ­­— but now in the bustling, growing city of Pittsburgh.
