Steve Marcantonio is a Grammy Award winning engineer, an American original, and true legend in the music world. He is available for projects at his discretion. Steve is a New Yorker, a great Italian-American, a mensch, and a friend. He has worked with everyone from the late great John Lennon to Taylor Swift. In fact, Steve was one of the last people to see John alive. “I had just left him when he was shot,” said Marcantonio, who has worked with Vince Gill, Reba McEntire, Taylor Swift and many other Music City recording artists. “His death and life had a profound effect on me and the trajectory of my career... John had a real affinity for the sound engineer,” Marcantonio said. “He was really good to all of us and very respectful of us as we made records with him.” The impact John Lennon left on Steve is evident in the excitement and passion that he brings to every project. We are proud to have him as part of our family. Fun fact: Steve recently had a delicious sandwich named after him.
