Mighty Speck Records
James Kasper, Founder & Director.
After producing the Vancouver Island Music Awards for a decade, James founded Mighty Speck Records in December 2012 with a vision to build a record label with a grander purpose – one with a mandate for community, charity work, artist development, and youth mentoring. James’ post-secondary education is in Linguistics and Broadcasting (radio & TV), and he specializes in artist development. In 2008, Monday Magazine named Kasper the “Hardest Working Person in Local Music.” He is also a singer songwriter, with several albums and tours to his credit, so he relates to the challenges of independent artists and makes it his mission to take artists to the next level in all facets of what they do. James is passionate about the ongoing building process of Mighty Speck Records and proud of the wonderful family of artists the label represents.
Trevor Woodland, Assistant to the Director.
Trevor Woodland is the latest addition to the Might Speck Records Crew, operating as an Assistant to the Director. Holding a Bachelor of Arts in History and Education, a Diploma in Cultural Resource Management, and a Certificate of Business Administration, Trevor is always seeking new ways to apply his skills in research, marketing, branding, and management, with his deep rooted passion for music. He currently works as a private music instructor teaching guitar and bass but he also moonlights as a luthier building guitars, amplifiers, effects pedals and a myriad of instruments that make noise. Coming from a family of construction managers, Trevor has a knack for understanding and proactively planning the logistics of what it takes to put on a show. Whether it’s building stages or building chord progressions, Trevor takes pride in being a jack-of-all-trades and is never one to shy away from a challenge.
