Jan is defined by his unique ability to transform a promising concept into a hit song or record – a feat he has achieved repeatedly, across genres and generations. He’s equally adept at composing and recording music for film and television, having a raft of award-winning projects under his belt including Picnic at Hanging Rock, Red Dog, Two Hands, Little J and Big Cuz, Bran Nue Dae and Serangoon Road.
Jan’s musical education began early under the guidance of his father, acclaimed film and TV composer Cezary Skubiszewski. He then worked as a sound engineer and producer at the iconic Sing Sing Studio in Richmond, which hosted the likes of Kanye West, Cat Power and Nick Cave.
Since those days, Jan has had runaway successes in genres ranging from hip hop to roots and rock n roll, and has produced ARIA-award winning records with Australian icons such as John Butler, and helped emerging artists hit the big time (ILLY). His work as a record producer and composer for film and television has won critical acclaim and a raft of awards and nominations at ARIA, APRA, AIR, Film Critics Circle of Australia, Screen Music Awards, National Indigenous Music Awards and many more, as well as production credits on several gold and platinum records.
Since opening Red Moon Studios in June 2017, Jan has been flat out making music with Aussie Icons such as John Butler, Dan Sultan, AB Original, Gang of Youths, Meg Mac and many more, as well as composing the score to Picnic at Hanging Rock with his dad Cezary.
