Joseph “Dante” Delfino is an experienced audio engineer, music producer, and an accredited educational mentor that graduated from the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in 2007. As the founder of Miller Street Studios, he takes pride in running his business with the utmost level of professionalism as the General Manager/Chief Engineer. Dante worked with the property owner, Dan Nagal, and by 2008 he earned the opportunity to develop his newly founded company from the ground up. This was the break of a lifetime considering the long road of hardships he endured. Since then, he has linked up and worked with the likes of Lecrae, Wu-Tang Clan, Twista, Tedashii, Trip Lee, MER, Gemstones, Mike Petro, Kareem Manuel, Dave Pracyse and more.

Dante has legitimate experience in recording, mixing, and producing music over the course of +10 years. As an official partner of the Recording Connection Audio Institute, Dante teaches a nationally accredited audio engineering and music production curriculum that is offered to aspiring students looking to delve into this profession. He deserves a great deal of credit for turning Miller Street Studios into the “go to” spot for indie artists in Chicago. One thing he stresses is knowing your role in the studio atmosphere. Dante’s etiquette and approach are what set him apart from other engineers in the industry. He partnered with John Bassmaji in 2010 to launch the career of a local electronic musician/recording artist named Mike Petro. Dante is a one of a kind professional that is more focused on changing peoples lives’ through music rather than strictly pursuing music for financial rewards.
