Some of Mike's Work
Michael Mangini is a two time Grammy Award–winning and multi-Platinum award-winning record producer and owner of Mojo Music, a production and artist management company. He has worked with The Jonas Brothers, Digable Planets, Baha Men, Joss Stone, David Byrne, The Beastie Boys, Run DMC, Bruce Hornsby, Smash Mouth, Dionne Warwick, Five for Fighting, Imani Coppola, Andy Grammer, AJR, Grace Weber, Diane Birch, Jillette Johnson, Hailey Knox, Jackie Evancho, Elise LeGrow, and many more. He was also the Music Producer for the film "Shrek."
While Mike spends most of his time in recording studios, writing sessions and professional consultations, he is excited to be a part of the Music Career Mastermind Program with Melissa Mulligan and her team. Mike and Melissa have worked together on many successful projects over the several years and share the same vision for encouraging aspiring artists to become self-sufficient, creative professionals.
Mike started his career in the music industry in 1985 at studios in Baltimore, Maryland. He also started writing songs, singing, and playing guitar for the band China Blue. Mangini and the band relocated to Los Angeles to record songs at various studios, which is where he first learned music engineering and programming. He went from being an assistant at Chung King Studios to becoming a multi-Platinum award-winning mixing engineer within two years.
“Working with Mike Mangini and all of the mastermind coaches has put me in such a happy and determined mindset with my music. I definitely could not have achieved this on my own, and I honestly don’t think I could make this music thing a career without them.
During the grad program with Mike, it was so remarkably helpful to hear what he had to say about my music. What I love most about working with him is that immediately after the masterclasses, I would feel so inspired by what he had to say that I would dive right back into my own project. Mike’s ideas were fresh in my head, and I just wanted to make one of my best songs yet.
The improvements I have seen in myself through the grad program and since then is almost unbelievable. The motivation, inspiration, and honestly pressure I experienced with Mike and the program has 100% made me a better musician.
I would like to say thank you for everything. I would not have this confidence in my future and in my music without Mike and all of the mastermind coaches.
Cheers to you all.” -Julia Johnson
