Alex St. Cin

Co-Owner/Chief Audio Engineer

Along with deep family roots in Alton, Alex has a deep appreciation for musicians and their craft. Records he heard as a guitar-playing kid sparked an interest in production, eventually leading to a college degree and a career defined by that special synergy between artist and audio engineer that makes good recordings great.

Davo Stein

Audio Engineer

A St. Louis area native, Davo brings his love of music and a degree in audio production to Lighthouse. “I got into recording, because I always wanted an enjoyable job that didn’t feel like one”, he says. Davo brings that passion-not-work approach to every recording project.

Jay “Hart” Stanley

Owner/Studio Manager

Looking to start his own business and influenced by friends with home studios, Hart decided to open Lighthouse Sounds in 2016 and provide a service unique to the Alton area. Like his audio engineering colleagues, Hart is a fan of all musical styles and especially enjoys interacting with people before, during and after their sessions here.

Kyle Noonan

Audio Engineer

A bass-playing Air Force vet originally from Connecticut, Kyle got into recording by doing demos for his bands. He spent countless hours learning online, perfecting his craft and becoming a freelancer good enough to get noticed and recruited by Lighthouse Sounds.

Justin Level

Born and raised in Alton, Justin got into audio production from the other side of the glass. After years of band performances and recordings, he jumped at the chance to do formal, hands-on training at Lighthouse. Now, Justin offers this unique mastery of art and technology to you.

Caleb Lienard
