Bio

Atlantic City Writer/Producer Kollabing with anyone who wants to write and publish material to sell to known artists or have a solo CD project. I write jazz for the purpose of producing my "After Dark Core” Jazz band. I write pop/Funk/dance/rock or whatever musical Genre to try and sell to publishers and or Known artists. 

I enjoy playing my mini moog  as it is my axe of choice :) http://www.kompoz.com/compose-collaborate/home.track.project?trackId=24336&projectId=7253

 Background 

My name is Rich, I am living in the USA (Atlantic City NJ) & I've been playing music for many years. I built my own recording studio from 2002-2005 and started recording in June 2006 (also some less serious recording in the 1980's 1990's). Besides recording, I was a live performer from 1978 thru 2001 and then left the business to manage my family and focus on my Information Systems Career with a major American Corporation. I have always been involved in performing and music composition (piano, keyboards, cello, some guitar and bass, orchestral and horn arrangements), which has enriched my musical life.

In 2008 I joined Kompoz.com to collaborate with musicians all over the world and help broaden my session musician base for my studio, using Regional talent in New Jersey agumented by the global talent around the world.

I had 3 musical band project concepts prior to kompoz that remain active in my studio to date.  My studio jazz Band called "The After Dark Core" which I write and play Jazz Fusion, "The N$"  which is a pop rock band project , and "The Loose" which is a female base pop top 40 Vocal Project.

After joining kompoz I started a Country project called "The Feud" and also incorporated some of the jazz musicians from Kompoz into another Jazz Start up Virtual band in the private sector.

In March of 2010, my home was robbed and then  i lost my studio to a flood and spent 9 months rebuilding the studio. My muscial time has been limited due to illness and my daytime job in 2011, but I continue to write and invite musicans to the Private sector of Kompoz.com.  I am thankful for all the support I receive from Kompoz members and from the regional players who come to my studio from New Jersey, and the Philadelphia area! -  USA! USA! USA!
