Meet John Capo of Wavelength Music in North Hollywood

Today we’d like to introduce you to John Capo.

John, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born and raised here in Los Angeles and I started playing the Piano when I was five years old.

As a teenager, I played keyboards and then started traveling across the United States and Europe playing in bands and also as a solo Piano player and Studio musician.

After several years of performing live, I decided to devote more time to songwriting and musical arrangement and production. I ran Hangar 14 Studios, working with bands and singer/songwriters as an Arranger, Engineer, Programmer, and Producer. I was also a resident composer for the independent ‘NuValley Orchestra‘, creating and performing symphonic and chamber style pieces.

I enjoy composing instrumental music and have released three albums: ‘‘Dream on the Outside’, ‘A Little Sugar for the Devils’ and ‘That Other Life You Lived‘.

After many years in the music industry, I transitioned into composing and Sound Design for film; working with the original Movie Tech Studios on Scoring, sound effects and Foley.

I was honored to receive awards for Best Sound Design and a nomination for Best Original Music from several film festivals for my work on the film Capsized from Geminii Films.

I also teach music, teaching anywhere from music basics, to how to produce a song or album from start to finish. Sharing my knowledge with others is something I enjoy very much. I’m currently working on music and sound design for two independent feature films due for release later this year.

Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
The road has basically been smooth since I already knew exactly what I wanted to do and didn’t allow myself to stumble along the way.
