Eric Ivan Rosse is an American composer, songwriter, record producer, and mixer.
Eric started playing piano at age 8, eventually studying orchestration and arranging with Jazz great Joe Rotundi Sr., whose mentorship—along with influences of soul, rock, art pop and classical music—has laid the foundation upon which he continues to build.
After playing in numerous bands as a keyboard player and singer, he expanded on his career by scoring TV and commercials, then going on to produce Grammy-nominated artist Tori Amos' groundbreaking albums Little Earthquakes and Grammy-nominated album Under the Pink.
Recently Rosse co-wrote with Steve Aoki and Louis Tomlinson to pen the latter's solo debut single. The song is certified Gold and Platinum in several countries including reaching #1 on the US Dance/Electronic Sales Singles Billboard chart.
Through creative insight and intense focus, Rosse manages to bring impact and powerful appeal to the music he composes and produces, helping to create a unique musical and emotional voice for each project.
Life and career
Rosse was born in Chicago, Illinois and began studying music at a young age starting with piano lessons. Through his training with jazz legend Joe Rotundi Sr., he came to score an award-winning short film at the age of 17, 'Day's Last Rainbow', which was directed by James Herring. His first professional recording gig was at The Sound Factory in Hollywood, CA in 1980. Rosse was hired there to play electric piano on various R&B recordings, and continued gigging with various bands and musicians around Los Angeles until 1989, when he co-founded EMBR Music with his brother, Michael Carey. They operated for five years under the name EMBR, producing music spots for well-known media entities such as Coca-Cola, TDK, Anacin, Sega, Asics, NY Aids Awareness, NBC and CBS.
In 1994, Rosse began to focus heavily on album production, setting up his studio in unusual locations such as Taos and Santa Fe, New Mexico (where he produced Tori Amos' records), as well as Air Studios in London, where he produced projects for EMI-UK and Sony Music.
Currently, Rosse resides in Los Angeles and continues to produce, compose, and mix.
