is the partnership between
Shayne Plunkett and Jesse Wright, two long-time friends and collaborators with a passion for creating powerful and emotional music. The two musicians, located in the foothills of Northern California, work closely together as fellow producers, composers, songwriters, audio engineers, and music enthusiasts.
Jesse has made a career as an accomplished audio engineer, composer, and sound design professional in the Sacramento area, and as the guitarist and founding member of Sacramento hardcore band Before You Fall. Over the years, he has built and supported a strong regional reputation for excellence in audio engineering and mixing, recording many projects in rock, pop, hip hop, and electronic styles. Jesse’s specialties include audio mixing, music production, songwriting and sound design.
Shayne is one of the guitarists and founding members of New York-based progressive rock band Time King. Once an alumni of Berklee College of Music where he studied film scoring, he helped form Time King and eventually made roots in New York as a producer and performing artist for multiple music artists in rock, jazz, and country, as well as composing for classical orchestra ensembles. Shayne’s specialties include music composition, production, songwriting, orchestration, and music theory.
Over the past decade, both musicians have spent time performing, writing, and studying the music of countless different genres and their applications. Shayne & Jesse, while on their separate paths, would often oversee the production of all aspects of the projects they were on; from the smallest of details in the harmony or melody, to the overarching direction of an entire record’s cohesiveness. Details such as the narrative backdrop of a visual or audio drama, the era of music intended to invoke within a song’s production, or how to help prop up others creatively in the writers room when collaborating; these two guys have experienced and juggled a bit of everything in order to realize their artistic visions.
Shayne & Jesse now collaborate as a team to write music in the service of other artists and their work.

Shayne & Jesse have plenty of experience working with many different genres of music including pop, rock, R’n’B, hip-hop, and jazz. They know the delicate nature of putting together dense instrumental and vocal arrangements, as well as the value of simplicity. They know the in’s and out’s of sound design to get a pristine modern sound, handling live instruments for a warm organic sound, and anything in between. Meadow Vista Media offers full production, mixing, mastering, composition, and sound design, operating out of their studio located in northern California.
We understand that the function or role that audio plays in the overall experience is crucial but also requires great flexibility. Shayne & Jesse offer their experience and constructive direction to use music to help tell the story, no matter the context.
In the film and television industry, a composer’s job is always to help facilitate an artist’s vision. The composition must work in harmony with the narrative and the tone, attune to the writer or director’s needs. Shayne & Jesse have a keen sensitivity to storytelling that is necessary in order for the relationship between music and narrative to truly solidify.
