Our founder and principal engineer, JL “Pepe” Espada, has been a musician for over 45 years and has played on touring bands, bar bands, has been a studio hand, and ultimately a studio owner, operator, and producer. Pepe studied Songwriting and Music Production at Berklee School of Music and completed the Mastering Accelerator mastering program, making him a bonafide Mastering Engineer. He has also participated in in-depth mixing workshops with Berkleee Professor and renowned mix engineer Rachel Alina. As founder of the independent label Boneyard Records, Pepe is also the in-house producer for the label acts. His approach as a music producer follows the model of the producer as a Project Manager. The service includes pre-production (planning, scheduling, and budgeting), production (tracking), and post-production (mixing and mastering), but at the artist’s discretion, he can also provide creative input. As an accomplished songwriter, Pepe can not only contribute instrumentally to his client’s recordings (guitar, bass, keyboards, and vocals), but he can also assist in the song’s concept development, arrangement, and lyrics composition.
