Meet The Leadership

Padraic Coursey, Director of Operations & Audio Production

St. Croix native Padraic Coursey returned home after 20 years spent between Philadelphia and Los Angeles. While in LA, Coursey co-founded Fluid Productions, a music company housed in the famed Cello Studio. At Cello Studio in Los Angeles, Coursey composed songs, produced, and developed new artists. He’s also worked on a number of projects for TV, including Discovery Channel and NFL Network. All the while he dreamt of building a state-of-the-art studio in his home island.

In 2008, Coursey finally realized his dream and built Aqua Sounds Studio, one of the top recording studios in the Caribbean. Later he co-founded Aqua Media, marrying audio and video production under one roof.

As a composer and songwriter Coursey has worked with a number of bands and artists in both the U.S. and Caribbean, resulting in five albums that have made it to the Billboard charts.
