Heaven Records – Los Angeles


Craig Parker Adams – Creative Consultant and Product Advisor

Born on December 3rd 1968 in Minneapolis Minnesota, Craig started asking for a guitar from around the age of 2 or 3. Turns out that the first REAL guitar showed up when he was around 5 when his parents bought a nylon string guitar for his older brother that Craig had his hands all over.

For the next two decades, Craig became the local “Guitar God” and after many years of touring and recording his own music, he became the Owner of Winslow Court Recording Studios, which he founded in 1997. Known for its historical location and said to be one of the original RCA recording studios, it’s the same studio space that the great pianist and entertainer, Liberace, once owned.

Over the years, Craig has become the go-to-guy for many of Hollywood’s illuminati. He has recording such well-known artists as Scott Weiland (Stone Temple Pilots), Steve Jones (The Sex Pistols) and Billy Duffy (The Cult), Jazz greats Charles Neville (The Neville Brothers) & Herb Mickman, as well as Hollywood celebrities such as Val Kilmer and Gabriel Byrne. Craig has worked with everybody from Geoff Emerick (Engineer for The Beatles and Paul McCartney) and Jack Tempchin (Hit Songwriter for The Eagles). Craig has even had the honor of recording The Great Johnny Rivers.

Studio legends such as Bob Glaub (John Lennon) and Don Heffington (Bob Dylan), consider Craig’s Winslow Court Studios “the most comfortable place to make music in the world”. His vast resume and warm personality was the reason Craig was called on to remix the original Guns’ N Roses recordings, Hollywood Rose. His most recent experience in 2010 mixing Frank Zappa’s 70Th anniversary tribute was something Craig refers to as “a special honor’.

Richard Agata – Management

Rich Agata has been an integral part of the Music Industry for the past 25 years. Born in Hollywood, CA, he grew up in the San Fernando Valley and played in the usual high school rock bands – with one notable exception: his bass player was Taras Prodaniuk (Dwight Yoakam and Lucinda Williams).

After graduating with a degree in Journalism from the University of Southern California, Rich’s diverse career in the Music Business began with 17 years as Art Director for the weekly international trade newspaper, Radio & Records. As an academician, Rich, has taught at the University of Southern California as well as Brooks College and the Art Institute of Los Angles in Santa Monica.

A talented musician in his own right, Agata’s 10-song CD entitled: “let’s call it hope” was released on indie label R-Turn Records and features the immense talents of Peter Case and Greg Leisz.

In fact, American Songwriter Magazine Editor, Paul Zollo, reviewed Rich’s cd thusly: “He’s a gifted and passionate songwriter with a propensity for writing and performing songs of unchained passion… This is a timeless mix of musical styles highlighted by powerful songs…” As an artist, Rich has opened for both Matthew Moore (songwriter for Joe Cocker) as well as for the late-great Etta James.

Today, Rich’s main focus is guiding the music careers of the Heaven Records featured artists. He brings 25 years of real-life experience with him and sees himself as a diplomat and peacemaker in the more-often-than-not jaded music industry.
