My Life long dream has always been to create music for a living
When I opened Kadin Music in early 2009 I began living the dream. Composing and producing new music daily... it's the ultimate high!
My interest in music started at an early age. When I was six I began taking classical piano lessons andI loved it right away. I would always rush home from school and play the piano for hours everyday. By the age of twelve I began writing my own music and that became my true passion in life. Soon after that I started getting into synths. At age thirteen I saved up my money and bought my first, a Moog Rogue (I still have it). Around that time I started writing and playing with various rock bands but after having a bunch of bad experiences making demos at professional recording studios I began putting together a home studio. It took years to hone my skills, a lot of which I learned from a teacher I met at Berklee College of Music by the name Craig Najjar.Craig taught me a great deal about songwriting and music in general as well as music production. Now fast forward to 2016, I still play in a band, Fools Faith is an award winning eclectic hard rock group. To date we've completed three albums. From drum tracking to mastering, it was all done right here
I love composing and producing music for film and television. Back in my college years a bunch of my friends were starting out in film and television industry and I was the guy with the home studio. It was a natural fit to compose music for their projects. In my early twenties, I was able to get an internship at 3-2-1 Studios (formerly The Record Plant) in mid-town Manhattan.This was my first exposure to working with a Neve console, every producers dream. After a few months of interning I was hired as an asst engineer but within the year, 3-2-1 closed it's doors. Luckily, my friends were able to get me a job working in television. Although I wasn't officially hired as a composer I became the "go to guy" when many of the producers I worked with needed music in a hurry. In the winter of 2009 I was laid off from my long time television gig and decided to follow my dream and make Kadin Music a full time endeavor. Since then I've been lucky enough to land music in hundreds of television episodes.
