CREATIVE DIRECTOR / PRODUCER
Kurt is no stranger to producing and directing high-level talent...
With music in his blood from the beginning, Kurt asked his parents if he could take piano lessons when he was 4. The teacher accepted him at 6, and he was off and running. Fast forward through childhood and countless bands and gigs, Kurt was awarded a talented undergrad scholarship to the University of Illinois for piano. Upon graduation, he was accepted into the prestigious Media Writing and Production program at the University of Miami.
Today, as a writer/producer/composer, much of Kurt’s work is in the brand space. He’s created music and songs for brands such as Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, Ford, Samsung, Olay, Opal etc. As an artist, and one half of the electronica duo Worldwide Groove Corporation, their music has been licensed around the world on several down-tempo compilations, and remixes that have been licensed into film and TV.
As producer/creative director for Resin8 Licensing, Kurt brings a wealth of experience to the creative process, not only in creating content himself, but in providing guidance to our other creative partners as well.
MOST INFLUENTIAL ALBUM
FRONTIERS | JOURNEY
Having studied classical piano all thru my childhood, but always loving pop music as well, the Frontiers album was a glimpse into what I could be as a keyboardist. From the opening synth hook in “Separate Ways” to the textures of “Send Her My Love” and of course the huge hit “Faithfully,” I was fascinated with the sound and role of keyboards/synths in a pop setting.
