WHO WE ARE
Our coaches are experienced professional Songwriters with Gold and Platinum albums to their credit in various genres. Each has their own unique expertise but all share the same love and appreciation for the art of song. (They also have their fair share of stories from the road and the songwriting trenches of Nashville, New York, and LA).
Ralph is a consummate musician (Bass, Guitar, Keyboards), as well as an accomplished songwriter, composer and producer. He cut his teeth helping Eddie Money write and record some of his greatest hits, “Shakin,” “No Control,” “Where’s the Party” and several other Rock classics. Currently he has three co-writes on Sugaray Rayford’s Delta Groove Records release, “Dangerous.” He co-wrote “Blind Alley,” the title track to Rayfords previous release. Along the way he’s had covers by Vixen (“Fallen’ Hero,” “Highway to Heartache,” “Animal Magnetism”, Steve Stone (Single release “Standing on the Edge,”) The Regulators, The Swing Kings, Nitro and a few others.
His recent scoring/production credits include music composition and production for the best-selling dance/fitness videos, “Dancing With the Stars,” “Denise Austin’s Quick Burn Cardio” and Jane Fonda’s most recent DVD releases. Over the last four years he has composed and produced music for over a dozen releases from Cal Poz’s Fitvid productions. He was a composer for NBC’s hit series “Starting Over.” He was house composer for Kidthing Inc. from 2007 through 2009, composing scores for popular Dr. Seuss renditions of “The Cat in the Hat,” “Green Eggs and Ham” and others. He is currently composing and producing music for the Pearson Foundation, for educational applications. His music is included in Showtime’s docu-drama “Trantasia.” He has done independent artist productions and arrangements for Dick Van Dyke, Leslie Bixler, and Red hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith’s children’s CD’s “Moonfood” and “Rhythm Train,” as well as Jon Gindick’s award winning CD “We all come back as music.”
