Jojo Villanueva

Jojo Villanueva is known to be one of the most active and productive music supervisors in the Film & TV Music community. As a music supervisor for Format Entertainment, he has been fundamental in the growth of this distinguished full-service music firm. Working with a broad range of clients, he has mastered providing keen expertise and insight into realizing musical visions for filmmakers, studios, production companies, and record labels. Known for his innovative talents, Jojo was sought after by Disney Pictures to help create a musical landscape that provided substantial indie cred without sacrificing “marketability” for the teen comedy Prom. No stranger to the importance of music in the teen comedy genre, he also contributed to the worldwide pop culture phenomenon of the American Pie film series, including his newest film American Reunion. Alongside esteemed Format Entertainment founder and notable music supervisor, Dave Jordan, Jojo helped bring to life the much-anticipated re-imagining of Arthur, in which a modernized soundtrack was tailored for the Warner Bros. romantic comedy that captures the classic essence of the much adored original. Also for Warner Bros., a charming musical narrative was achieved for the star-studded romantic comedy and adaptation of the best-selling novel Something Borrowed. Ever versatile, Jojo works in a wide variety of genres from dramas such as Fighting, to thrillers like The Hitcher, to a diversity of comedies such as spoof films Epic Movie and Vampires Suck, to the family comedy Marmaduke. A musician himself, Jojo studied jazz piano at the prestigious USC Thornton School of Music. He’s seen fame and recognition as a member of the hip-hop group Elements of the Outer Realm, with appearances at Lollapalooza and major terrestrial radio stations like KROQ.
