Juan Escovedo

At a young age, Juan Escovedo began teaching himself how to play bongos, congas, trap drums, timbales, percussion and other instruments. When he turned 14 he began playing with his father, Pete Escovedo.

Since that time, Juan has established himself in the the industry as undeniably a musician of complexity, style and originality. His artistic achievements flow from his rich musical heritage and compassion for his art form.

Juan Escovedo tours, writes and records both as a solo artist and with his family – father Pete Escovedo, brother Peter Michael and sister Sheila E. Currently they have a new CD titled “The-E-Family” which is quickly rising up the charts. Juan co-wrote and produced three of their new songs. The CD features Josh Stone, Gloria Estefan, Earth, Wind & Fire.

Juan Escovedo expects to drop his very own CD next year. He’s made special appearances in videos and film as well recording and performing with many of the most notable artists of our time. To his credit here are just a few more:
