During his three year tenure at Sigma Joe engineered multitrack sessions for a variety of artists, including work for commercial clients. Joe's credits include sessions with Teddy Pendergrass, Patti LaBelle, Harold Melvin and the Blue Notes, and Grover Washington Jr. Kraus left Sigma to pursue freelance work, and in short order found himself busy running sessions in a number of Delaware Valley based studios.

Joe's particular proficiency in ProTools® and Performer® MIDI sequencing software have added an extra dimension to Masterwork's palette of services.
