Classically trained Composer and Tonmeister Audio Engineer with a passion for producing & mixing. I love helping creative artists bring their productions & mixes to the next level, incorporating my knowledge as both an experienced musician and sound engineer.
I have worked in film, commercials (Mercedes Benz), online publications (Nowness, Document Journal), artist releases (Noé Solange, Urchin, Andrea Balency) as a composer, producer and audio engineer.
My background: Masters in Composition, Royal College of Music (London, UK)
Masters in Sound Recording (Tonmeister), McGill University (Montreal, Canada)
I love to bring my understanding of composition & arrangement together with my interest in production & mixing, to create a piece of music that works both musically and sonically. My ultimate goal is to bring exciting music to its full potential, allowing the artist to be able to express themselves completely.
I have studied under such names as George Massenburg & Richard King, giving me invaluable production and engineering experience. I have worked in studios ranging from Revolution Recording & Redpath Hall (Canada), to boutique studios in Berlin & London. I have worked across classical, pop, jazz and electronic genres, giving me a wide understanding of production and mixing for acoustic and electronic instruments.
I produce and mix my own music under the name Ross K. In 2020 I released my debut LP Braedalyn, performed in venues across Europe. A recent highlight was reaching #1 on Hype M for the track 'Slow Game'.

Ross was really good to work with in scoring my short films. He is really good at working with notes but also goes above and beyond to put his own creative flair on each piece of music and mixing he does which is more than you can ask for. Would recommend having him work on your film, whether that is mixing or original score, because he is meticulous and creative.
Luckily I had chance to work with Ross on a classical music recording session, he is a very professional and reliable producer, the whole project was done with efficiency and high quality. I’d highly recommend.
I had the pleasure of collaborating on a track with Ross.
His knowledge in composition and mixing allowed us to create a unique piece together! He communicated effectively and was very efficient. Highly recommend.
Ross composed the music for Narcocorrido, my first feature and I've been recommending him ever since. We worked remotely which brought its own challenges, but after an initial exploratory feeling out process he produced work that simply blew me away. It was a great creative experience and look forward to working with him on the next project.
Ross helped me with mixing and mastering my latest project 'Not Like This'. Ross is a great collaborator and communicator, making the entire process smooth. His patience and thoughtful approach to production helped steer my tracks in whatever direction I wanted. On top of this, Ross extended his services, offering me invaluable advice on my compositions as I was finishing the songwriting process. 5 stars from me!
