Tom Capek

Tom Capek has been a valuable member the AINWM team since 1991. Tom’s very unique skillset places him at the very beginning, as well as at the very end, of every recording in our library. Pre-production on all of our masters begins in Studio B at Colorado Sound with Tom engineering. Once we have finished tracking and mixing, every song goes back into Studio B where he carefully guides each one through the mastering process. In addition, Tom’s keyboard expertise, specifically Hammond Organ, is heard on several of our recordings. 

As a professional musician for over 30 years, Tom has performed and/or recorded with Dotsero, Nelson Rangell, Chris Daniels, Lannie Garrett, Images, Chuck Pyle, Peter Kater, Colorado Springs Symphony, National Repertory Orchestra and others. He toured nationally with the Henry Paul Band as well.

Tom studied jazz piano with Mike Longo (pianist and arranger for Dizzy Gillespie) in New York City. He attended both Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for Computer & Systems engineering, as well as the Manhattan School of Music in New York.

Some of his production credits include music arrangement for numerous Baby Einstein educational videos for children, and original music composition for the documentary, The Life and Times of Allen Ginsberg. In 1993, he and Colorado Sound won an ITVA (International Television & Video Association) award for Best Original Music Production.

As a producer, Tom has worked on a variety of projects, including three projects with classical guitarist, Darren Curtis Skanson. Skanson's “Classica” (2000), reached #11 on Billboard's Top Classical chart. Tom also co-produced the jazz group Dotsero's “Jumpin' Through Hoops” album, and has performed with them at numerous jazz festivals including "Genuine Jazz in July" at Breckenridge, Colorado, and the Winter Park Jazz Festival. Tom has also produced several local and regional bands including Exit 232 and Starless.

In addition, Tom has mastered over 200 album projects at Colorado Sound, from jazz to classical and folk to rock, and everything in between.
