About tandra jhagroo

I grew up in Western Canada with parents that are Jamaican, it meant spending time bouncing between Micheal Jackson and Metallica, Gregory Isaac to Teddy Pendergrass, Prince to the Police.
‘Music was so interesting then. Fearless and filled with lots of emotion! I’m always looking for that emotional tug in my mixes now”

After graduating with a Bachelors in Physics, I wandered into college that taught audio engineering. The time at Trebas Institute showed that I had a great aptitude for all things technical, but it was a trip to Jamaica that influenced me the most and really helped me to dive into the ART of music. Literally surrounded by mega-musical influencers – Sly & Robbie, Steelie & Cleavie, Robert Livingston (and more), I was able to hone the skills of shaping the intricate sounds of dancehall and authentic reggae live-recordings, the mastering of Jamaican dub style of mixing-on-the-fly and lastly mixing songs and album projects, not just Reggae, but a multitude of genres both related and non-related to it.

After 10 plus years, Red Bull Marketing offered a job that involved making arrangements and liaison between the Jamaican music industry and the Friends of Red Bull network seeking to complete projects on the island. Things for me eventually progressed, going from Engineer to Producer, Project Leader and A&R.

I am an active board member of GURLES Limited, a Jamaica-based organization that seeks to empower women in this globalized industry of entertainment. The organization formed a label, and as project leader and A&R, put together it’s first ever compilation album featuring acts from Jamaica and Canada, titled ‘Big Woman Tingz’.
