LOS ANGELES, USA // J Bonilla is the Co-Founder and Creative Director of award-winning music company The Elements Music. With offices in Los Angeles and London, the company specializes in creating record-quality custom music for media and also licenses a vast catalog of songs and tracks.
J began his career engineering, programming, remixing, and producing records for some of the world’s biggest artists including Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Maroon 5, Keith Urban, and Christina Aguilera. His co-founding partner, Ian Dalsemer, also began his music career in the studio, engineering for some of the industry’s top artists (Beyonce, Elton John, Wu-Tang Clan, Dr. Dre). Together, the duo pivoted to music for picture, and set out to create a music company that would be regarded as best-in-class at creating “Real Records for Media”.
Over a decade later, The Elements Music has a roster of over 200 of the best artists and composers from around the globe, a robust production team in their Los Angeles and London offices, is a global Custom Music/Sound Partner of TikTok, and has a body of work that includes brands such as Nike, Samsung, BMW, Google, NBA, Porsche, Dyson, and Uber to name a few - as well as working with leading TV Networks like NBC/Universal on award-winning promos for ‘The Super Bowl’ and hit shows like ‘The Voice USA’ and ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’.
“It’s unreal that I get to wake up every day and create music with insanely talented artists and composers, work with teammates that I love and respect, and continue to build a company that I’m wildly passionate about!”
J is based in Los Angeles and lives with his wife Jackie and two children Cameron and Chloe.
