Isaac Peña is a music producer in the broadest sense of the word. Whether in the studio or on stage, he has mastered many aspects of the music making process. For the past 25 years he has served as composer, arranger, director and/or instrumentalist in many musical groups and presentations ranging in ensemble size from 2 to 35, and representing a wide variety of genres including Latin, Classical, Jazz, Rock, Indie and R&B/Soul. Some notable highlights from recent years include concerts in his hometown of Austin, TX that he conceived and directed with co-production from the Live Music Capital Foundation. The first was a presentation of his group Trio Los Vigilantes at the State Theater with a 14-piece string accompaniment in 2014; then the following year a concert performance of songs from the Great American Songbook accompanied by a 26-piece orchestra, and featuring 8 of Austin’s finest singers; and finally in 2016, a presentation called Midsummer Mambo, performing Mambo, Cha Cha and Bolero classics with a 16-piece ensemble. In the studio he takes his talents as a composer and instrumentalist, and combines them with his skills as an audio and mixing engineer to provide a complete recording producer package for his clients. He has recorded and produced several Austin musical artists, and also recently worked with another producer to help provide material for the music library of cable sports channel ESPN. Currently he is working with Anthropos Arts teaching trumpet lessons to students from low-income families as he has every year in the spring for the past decade. Isaac is busy preparing Straight Up with a Ginger Twist; charting songs, leading the 8-piece band!
