John Parenti is a Southern California based record producer, composer and arranger. His first instrument and obsession were the drums and to this day, still considers himself a drummer first. He believes in songs with great melodies and is a champion for a well crafted lyric. You can count three #1 songs and six Top 10 Hits in the CCM market on his writing credentials. The most noteworthy was a national #1 hit for 13 solid weeks and is currently the longest running number one airplay hit in CCM history. He has produced over 70 artists involving every genre of music and has enjoyed many successes scoring original music for picture on network movies and advertising campaigns over the last 18 years.

Today his interests are in producing and collaborating with select singer songwriters who inspire him. He keeps a small roster of talent focusing complete attention to the artist and their craft with the sole purpose of making music that is impeccable, thoughtful and memorable.

John Parenti

SoCal surf meets soul with Summer Grace Watson's original songs. Her talent and heart are as real as they get. She is a record producer's dream.

Jon Garner masterfully channels Jazz, Gypsy, Folk and Vintage Cowboy to transport you to another place and time with his musical swagger and dead-level storytelling. He is a captivating writer, a monster guitar player and a music genre of his own. 

I've had the honor of working with so many talented artists. Each bring their unique sensibilities and musical gifts to the process. Here are a few standouts with Benny Hester, John Giannone and Leslie Page.
