MUSICIAN / PRODUCER / AUDIO ENGINEER

"Focado, persistente, proativo, criativo, 
perfeccionista, detalhista ao extremo e apaixonado por música"

- Este sou eu - Pedro Canaan

Pedro grew up on São Paulo, Brasil, onde esteve sempre cercado pela música, where he was always surrounded by pop/punk, 80's hair metal, and bubblegum pop music. His life changed when she was 12 years old,   y for the first time in concert. It was from there on that she knew that she wanted to work in the music industry. Once in college, she landed an internship at Atlantic Records, and soon after became a WMG College Rep at Pace University. She now helps oversee the entire Warner Music U team, and she loves getting to work with all of the reps every day! Karlie is known for wearing a "Make America Emo Again" hat, a Britney Spears backpack, and for getting way too invested in Big Brother.

EDUCATION

 

Columbia College Chicago
 

BA in Audio Arts and Acoustic Concentrations: Audio Design and Production May, 2022

 

BMus in Music Concentration: Contemporary, Urban and Popular Music May, 2022

Pedro  grew up in Sāo Paulo, Brazil, and began to take an interest in music at an early age. At age 12, Pedro helped found the metal band: The Death Season, which has since been signed to one of the biggest labels in Brazil, playing shows all over Sāo Paulo. In addition to playing bass and keys in the group, Pedro also plays a key role in the band’s production and management process.

 

In high school, Pedro founded the revolutionary program: CRIA. The program aimed to help teach other students interested in the arts, involving more than 400 students within the first year. After high school Pedro was invited by Douglas Neves to co-produce an album at Estúdio Fusāo, which lead to his band's record deal.

 

Today Pedro studies at Columbia College Chicago where he double majors in Music and Audio Production and Design. In 2019, Pedro and his roommate Tony Klacz, created the studio/label "The Groovy Motherfunkers", that currently writes and produces for an array of artists throughout America. 

The Groovy Motherfunkers’ first shows consecutively pulled in hundreds of people each night. The label has already released an EP from the house band (2u4me by the Groovy Motherfunkers), as well as a single (Lips Like Chardonnay) and a full length album (Xeno) for their label’s premiere artist: Zeno Camera. The Group has several projects currently in the works including: multiple full length albums, EPs, and singles for an array of artists, a Brazillian tour, and large compilation tape being created through the recording of tons of undiscovered Brazillian talent. Besides playing bass and providing backing vocals for the house band, Pedro is the Executive Producer of all of the Groovy Mothefunkers' projects. Pedro is also the Musical Director, the head of Studio-Design, Co-Manager, and in charge of Gear Management. 
 

In addition to his work with the Groovy Motherfunkers, Pedro recorded and engineered a large portion of The Death Season's new, full length album, scheduled to come out in May of 2020.
