4 ReviewsEndorse R.A.M.P. Music Media
The most talented group of writers and musicians I've worked with. They are no only talented, but genuinely great people with such a love and passion for music.
Great guys to work with they can do it all!
R.A.M.P. composed and recorded the sound track for my short film The Fork. The Fork was awarded a Best Short Award at Bleedingham Film Festival and recognized at Canada Shorts. It is a finalist in the upcoming Rock The Shorts Film Festival in Los Angeles and the Blackbird Film Festival in New York. Reviews have complimented our soundtrack. R.A.M.P. elevated our project and I will always keep them on the top of my list.
Great people - bent over backwards to deliver, and they more than delivered. They’re worth listening to.
