When Pete Garcia graduated from The Los Angeles Recording School (LARS) in 2007, he set some pretty lofty goals for himself – work with the industries top artists, release his very own solo project, purchase a studio, and start a record label, just to name a few. Less than three years after graduating, he has accomplished each and every one of these. Garcia, a.k.a. Pete G, is most known for wearing many hats in the studio. He already has earned a number of credits as a Artist, musician, producer and engineer, working with stars from Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Rakim, E40, The Game, Tyga, Ya Boy, Eminem & Shady Records Artist(s) & Chamillionaire, and many many more. He continues to build his resume with other chart setters.In addition to working behind the board, Garcia has also had success behind the microphone, performing over 300 live shows and now releasing a music video once a month. His Latest Mixtape "Above All" did outstanding with numbers, and is now working on numerous projects set to release very soon, if they haven't release already.
“It all boils down to passion,” Garcia said. “Without it, it is hard to keep going no matter what it is you do.”
Garcia found his passion early, writing and making music at the age of seven. “My pops was in a band,” he said. “By high school, I was doing shows and making beats. I knew that I would eventually have a career in music.” After high school, Garcia enrolled in LARS where he would later graduate at the top of his class, having developed his engineering and mixing skills.
“LARS helped bring out the technical aspects of my recording, engineering & production side” Garcia added. “As a musician, engineer, and producer, you are always looking for the best in creating a sound. The only way I felt I could become the best was to surround myself with the best in the industry. LARS helped me do that and helped me enhance my abilities immensely.” Garcia also noted that wearing many hats in the studio has helped him when working with major artists. “My expertise in different studio positions allows me to share more as a artist, musician, engineer, and producer,” he said. “In addition, learning all aspects of the recording process has helped me become a better artist.”
Now at the age of 25, Garcia has become a very well-known in the music/entertainment scene.
While Garcia knows his path to success has found a fast lane, he realizes that there are other elements besides his passion and enthusiasm for music. When asked what he might share with other aspiring musicians hoping for the same success, he was quick to say that it is not for everyone. “You also have to be humble, and work hard!”
