Hi, I'm Rob from England. I'm a multi instrumentalist but primarily a guitarist. My main focus is writing and producing music. I really enjoy the creative process behind making movies. I consider film composers to be filmmakers as much as any other crew member, and I believe serving the story is the most important job role composers must fulfil.
I am a huge film buff and love everything to do with movies. I grew up on the films of Spielberg, Zemeckis and Lucas and have been greatly influenced by them. I also love the classic films from the golden age of Hollywood. More recently I've been enjoying the films of directors such as Steve McQueen, Denis Villeneuve, Ryan Coogler, Edgar Wright and Barry Jenkins.
My musical style is broad and eclectic, covering anything from J Dilla to Debussy. This makes me very versatile as a composer as it allows me to write for a number of different styles and genres.
I love the challenge of making music to serve something bigger than itself. I look forward to working closely with the fantastic new talent that L.A has to offer in the world of Film.
