Rob Mounsey is a self-proclaimed music nerd, having taught himself classical music composition at the very early age of 11. With a natural passion for music, he earned his way into the Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he migrated his energy into the world of jazz while studying with the likes of Gary Burton, among others. Fresh out of school, Mounsey briefly hit the road with the Tommy Dorsey Band, but decided life on a bus wasn’t for him. A wise decision, as his career as a studio musician and solo artist began to flourish. Settling in New York City, Mounsey went on to perform with and produce some of the biggest names in music, such as Paul Simon, Steely Dan, Eric Clapton, Madonna, Diana Ross, Ashford and Simpson, James Taylor, Michael Franks, Rihanna and many more. But Rob Mounsey ‘s career is expansive. Not only has he performed with the biggest names in the industry, he’s also taken on projects for television and film, such as creating music elements for Sex and the City, and for films like “Working Girl” and “Bright Lights, Big City” with Donald Fagen. He’s a six time Grammy nominee and has taken home two Emmy’s over the course of his career. And the good news is that with all of his successes, he’s still as passionate as ever for his craft.
