Jeanne Montalvo is a Grammy-nominated audio engineer and radio producer. She spent almost a decade working in music recording before breaking into radio. She has worked as an audio engineer and producer for NPR, Bloomberg Radio, the Duolingo podcast as well as projects for the New York Times, Sony. She's currently Senior Producer for Futuro Studios. As the child of Dominican parents, she focuses on culture and music stories ranging from the inner workings of growing up bilingual, parenting bilingual children, and telling the stories of music icons past and present.
When she’s not taking a deep dive into her latest story, she stays involved with the music industry as much as she can. In 2017, she was nominated for a Grammy Award as Mastering Engineer for Vladimir Horowitz: The Unreleased Live Recordings, and her recording of Multiverse by Bobby Sanabria’s Latin Jazz Big Band was nominated for Best Latin Jazz Album at the 2012 Grammy Awards. In 2018, she was selected as the EQL resident -- a residency developed specifically for women engineers -- to work at the Spotify and Electric Lady Studios in New York City. She is currently the treasurer for the New York Section of the Audio Engineering Society.
