Jonathan Camacho Talks Film & Music



Having found relative success in his sojourn into film, record producer/composer Jonathan Camacho is looking to be more involved in the industry in the coming years.
Apart from that, it's business as usual for the producer and that means working with a wide variety of artists, experimenting with all types of genres and of course, bringing out the best in the people he works with!
"I definitely want to continue doing more film work in the future as well as continue working with artists in different genres. Like I said, I love working with people and helping them find their sound and help them find themselves in the process. Long term that's really what I want to be known for, someone that helps people find themselves", he said while speaking to Urban Craft magazine on the sidelines of announcing a brand new project.

Titled 'Hello Shannon', the project took the better part of 3 years to put together and is co-written/co-produced by Jonathan and his wife Shannon.
"Right now the project that I'm the most excited about is "Hello Shannon". My wife, Shannon, is an incredible songwriter and producer and we've been co-producing and co-writing a full length album for about 3 years now, but the album is done and is currently being mixed set for a release later this year.
"We've poured our hearts and soul into this album and I definitely feel like it's some of the best and most creative work I've ever done so I'm excited for everyone to hear it. To stay up to date with the album release, you can follow her at @_helloshannon on all social media as well as simply at helloshannonmusic.com", said the producer/composer.

Camacho is a graduate from the University of North Texas with a degree in music composition and works at C-Factory Productions as a producer, composer, songwriter and engineer.
"I have also worked in artist development at Septien Entertainment Group, an amazing company which under world renowned vocal coach Linda Septien has helped launch the careers of people like Demi Lovato, Jessica Simpson, Selena Gomez, Zach Herron (Why Don't We) and more. My focus at Septien Entertainment group was songwriting, production, and instrumental development", he said.

The talented producer/composer has over the years made considerable strides in both film and music and is looking to accomplish a lot more in the years to come.
"One of the turning points in my career was definitely when I was able to compose the music for the ESPN 30 for 30 film "What Carter Lost" about the 1988 Carter High football team. That film released in the fall of 2017 and a year earlier I also got the opportunity to work on a film called "Destination: Team USA" which was the first film commissioned by an airline.
"The film was commissioned by United Airlines to run as their in flight movie during the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro and then later was added to Netflix. I've also been able to work on projects that have been featured on Billboard Latin and on numerous TV shows worldwide.
"The ESPN 30 for 30 film is a big achievement for me. An earlier season of that film series received an Emmy so it's incredible to be a part of something like that. I've also worked on a few independent films that have played at different film festivals here in Texas as well as in Chicago and New York.
"I also worked with an artist named Nio Amesty on a latin pop album and the album was featured on Billboard Latin Online which was pretty cool. That album had singles that played on pop radio in Venezuela which was also pretty cool", said Camacho.

For the producer/composer there's never a dull moment and he is fully-immersed when it comes to his work, assisting artists in, not only finding their sound but also helping them better communicate who they are to the audience.
"I've been lucky enough to be a part of so many different kinds of projects. Like I said, it's never boring. One day I could be working on a cinematic score for something and then next day I could be working on an R&B production, or a country song, or an indie folk song. I love the fact that every day can look different. I'm blessed to have a lot of people trust me with their music and their careers and I take each and every project very seriously. I love working with people to help them find their sound. I'm not after so much just emulating what's out there as much as I am helping an artist get out the sound that they are hearing in their heads.
"Sometimes that process is quick and sometimes it takes a lot of time. Weeks, months, years even. But if an artist can walk away saying "that's exactly what I always heard in my head" then I'm happy. Sometimes an artist might not even know exactly what they want and they find themselves in the process and I love being a part of that. So sometimes an artist walks away saying "that's exactly what I never knew I always heard in my head" and that makes me happy as well. So I definitely feel like that's my focus professionally. Helping an artist communicate who they are", he said.
