Our Studio’s History

About Us

Founded in early 2017 with the merger of two separate production projects, Imprint Recordings is the combined effort of proprietors Charles Esposito and Justin Kavva.  We have over eight years experience in home studio recording and music production, and extensive involvement in the local music scenes in Rockford and Chicago areas.  We continually develop our skills though self-directed study as well as current enrollment in Berklee College of Music online program for music production.  Our goal is to keep the production transparent to the listener, so they connect with the music and the artist.
