Juan A. Thompson


Juan A. Thompson, a native of Dayton, OH, got his initial start in music in 1996 when his friend took him to a local independent label's studio. He was mesmerized by the atmosphere and knew that music was something he wanted to be involved in. He made his first beat on Playstation's MTV Music Generator and found himself hooked on production. A few years later, he found his nitch with consulting and advocating for other independent artists. Over the years, he has worked with dozens of independent recording artists, and independent labels in many capacities (producer, writer, A&R, management, marketing, consulting, and executive advisor). Juan has always had a passion for seeing artists reach their full potential. 

Juan is a graduate of Southern New Hampshire University where he has his Associate's in Business Administration. He's also a former boxer of over 20 years, his favorite NFL team is the Dallas Cowboys, and an avid video gamer, PS5, to be specific.  He currently resides in Newport News, VA.
