Vagabond Audio Adds Composer Joshua Abrams
August 3, 2012 by Screenmag
Chicago-based Vagabond Audio has expanded into original music composition and added its first composer, Joshua Abrams, the company recently announced.
“We have done some composition through the years, mostly for existing clients who had specific needs,’ says Vagabond’s Risé Sanders. “We were so impressed with Josh’s work on The Interrupters that we wanted to bring his talents to the local commercial community. We hope it’s the beginning of a beautiful relationship.”
Abrams has worked on over fifty records over the past fifteen years. He has worked with a wide range of artists across many genres including jazz legend Fred Anderson, songwriting genius Bonny "Prince" Billy, and hip-hop/ soul pioneers The Roots, as well as leading his own ensembles. He recently scored The Interrupters, an award-winning documentary by Steve James.
The move came together because Abrams worked with Vagabond on The Interrupters, he said.
“We got along very well,” Abrams said. “They proposed that we try to work together and it seemed like an exciting possibility.”
Abrams has already done work for clients and is available for demos and commercial work through Vagabond Audio.
“Vagabond is already renowned for sound design and mixing,” Abrams said. “Adding the option of original music composition feels like a natural extension of the services they already offer.”
