Who We Are

Green Zebra was founded by Joel Henry Stein, who brings decades of professional experience in songwriting, producing, engineering, composing, performing, and arranging in order to best assist artists and clients with their music needs.

Joel’s talents and experience as a performer, composer, arranger, conductor, and engineer all converge in the recording studio. He has produced numerous rock, jazz, and classical musicians and has worked with members of the bands of Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, Duncan Sheik, Kelly Clarkson, Glen Hansard, George Michael, and Avril Lavigne.


Joel founded Green Zebra in Los Angeles in 2011 primarily as a music licensing company. In the first two years, he signed nearly 60 artists and bands and secured licensing deals for many of them. in 2016, Stein and Green Zebra turned their attention to producing and creating, collaborating in the studio with a wide range of talented artists, and providing music career consulting services to musicians who are serious about taking their careers to the next level.
