Joshua Garcia


Josh Garcia’s interest in music and recording began at an early age, with a 4-track cassette machine and picking up the drums. But it was his first studio session, recording his first band’s first (and only) demo in a studio, that mesmerized him and began his fascination with the world of audio engineering. It was then that he knew he had found his calling.

In the summer of 1997, Josh began as an intern at Time Bomb Records in Laguna Beach, CA. A few years later, he moved up the California coast to Sausalito, where he interned at The Plant for 6 months. Making his way to San Francisco, where he currently resides, he began working nights in rock clubs, getting to know the various aspects of live sound, while also spending his days working in the famous Hyde Street Studios. It was here that he took in anything and everything thrown his way by the studio’s staff of highly talented and experienced engineers and producers, absorbing a wealth of knowledge and gaining much valuable experience.

Garcia is highly passionate for all things audio, including creative advances in audio production. His audio upbringing and work ethic are deeply rooted in old school production techniques such as analog tape recording and capturing live “Off the floor” takes stemming from his experiences with engineers and producers including Dominic Camardella (Santa Barbara Sound Design) and the late, great Don Smith (Tom Petty, The Rolling Stones, U2). As a younger engineer, however, he also incorporates a very modern approach to production. Having learned from his time assisting forward-thinking and talented engineers like Matt Kelly (SF), Russ Elevado (NYC), Bill Stevenson (CO), and Ben Hillier (UK), Garcia follows in their footsteps by utilizing many modern production techniques as well.

Currently Josh is a studio Manager at Motor Studios in San Francisco as well as a freelance engineer available for Studio work, live sound FOH or Monitor engineer and able to travel for projects.
