Bob Crawford–Multi-faceted Musician

Bob Crawford -Official Website

http://www.carosta.com/bob-crawford/

I work as a songwriter/composer, producer, guitarist, arranger, vocalist, recording engineer, Stage manager/Live Sound Engineer (currently with Grammy Award winner Larry Harlow and Zon del Barrio in NYC), consultant, studio owner, and now newly published author of “Symmetric Cycles”, my John Coltrane/Pat Martino/Nicholas Slonimsky-inspired music theory book.

I also provide customized music for and am actively seeking music licensing/placement opportunities with recording artists, for underscoring/transitions in film, TV, advertising and product placement, ringtones, video games, etc. in genres such as Pop, R&B/Soul, Indie Rock, Contemporary Jazz, Dance, Singer-Songwriter, New Country, and Folk idioms. 

Having  been in the music industry for quite some time I have a rather large song catalog & long track record, working with such varied artists as Jocelyn Brown, Mick Taylor, Maxine Brown, Dennis Williams (O’Jays, Temptations), Larry Harlow, Ron Richardson, Carl Hall, Aztec 2 Step, Beverly Crosby, Loretta Devine, and Vondie Curtis-Hall in such varied genres such as Pop, R&B/Soul, Contemporary Crossover Jazz, Rock, Dance, Singer-Songwriter, New Country, and Folk idioms.           

I have been producing artists in genres such as Pop, R&B, Rock, Contemporary Jazz, Dance, Singer-Songwriter, New Country, and Folk idioms for 25 years, ranging from Jocelyn Brown to Larry Harlow to Mick Taylor to Maxine Brown, among many others. I have my own recording studio, RMCO MUSIC, in Chelsea in Manhattan, or if you prefer another one we can work there, or online, if you so desire. Please let me know if you would like to set up a meeting so that we can more fully discuss your project. In the meantime, here is my web address so that you can find out a bit more about me…http://www.carosta.com/bob-crawford/
