RSR452 – Mark Rudin – Songwriting for Sync License Music

Lower that cheese flag dude! Mark talked about writing music for sync that is fun and relatable without being too obvious, building a hotel studio in Mexico, placing music in feature films, using the iPhone mic, horn arrangments, and Shruti boxes.

My guest today is Mark Rudin, an accomplished artist, producer, and songwriter with a masterful command of multiple instruments - particularly horns. His song "Miracle" was a winner on season 2 of the NBC show Songland, and his work has been featured in major ad campaigns for brands such as Grey Goose and Simple Mills, as well as trailers for the Tom and Jerry Movie and the movie, Easter Sunday. Mark newest release "That Looks Good On Me" ft. KONG is out now and we have a playlist of his music and discography in the show notes.

Thank you to Rodger Alan Nichols for the introduction!
