David R on SoundBetter

Whether you're working on a comedy, cartoon, or anything else, this two-time Emmy-nominee has a unique skill set to push your project over the finish line!

I'm a two-time Emmy-nominated composer who splits his time between TV/movie projects/country pop songwriting & producing, and composing & arranging for big band.

I specialize in scoring cartoons and comedies. I've written the score for such show as Tom & Jerry, The Pink Panther & Pals, and Maya & Miguel.

I love scoring all types and genres of film; but I truly excel at comedies. I can add a dimension to your project that you may not have even imagined.

I view film scoring as a truly collaborative art and make it my goal to provide you with a score you'll love.

Another aspect of my scoring that you might like (or hate) is I love to come up with a concept for the (along with the director) that's unique to the project.

I can offer a unique take on what your project needs and deliver a thoroughly professional score.

**NEWS- my song, Christmas in L.A., just placed second in the Music City Song Star contest!**

As a pop music producer, I can help you at any stage of the songwriting journey.
I can offer insight into where your song is working and some helpful suggestions on where it might not be.
I can build a track for your song with a current and professional sound.

    David is an amazing composer who understands perfectly the art of scoring a cartoon – especially when your two main characters are trying to kill each other! The time and effort he put into helping me out with the score for my first animated short was second-to-none, and I’ll definitely be calling on his services again in the future. If you need any kind of music for your cartoon, he’s your guy!

    David was a dream to work for- clear and detailed instructions before recording even began which minimised the need for any amendments, and a true professional throughout. Would definitely recommend!

    Great production taste and style as well as lyrics and melody. I was super impressed with the catchy-ness of the song and how clever and well written the lyrics were. Highly recommend on production/ and top lining.
