Notes Global Executive Producer Hamish Macdonald, “I am very excited to see Zac take on the newly developed role of CD of Music, NY. Not only is he an incredibly talented musician, but he has a deep understanding of how music can enhance pictures to communicate to their most effective and engaging degree. And now as CD, he can utilize his experience to drive the composers to ensure Nylon’s high standard of production continues and is never compromised.”
Adds Colwell, “I’ve been working with this talented team for the last two years and I’m honoured to be given the opportunity to expand our relationships. Even before I arrived, Nylon has always been known for its musical authenticity, so I’m going to continue finding new and creative ways to explore the beautiful relationship between pictures and sound, with our creative family of musicians from New York, Sydney and around the world, flowing through our studio here in Soho.”
Austin, TX native Colwell grew up in a musical family, playing drums, piano, guitar, saxophone and flute. A classically-trained jazz composer, he brings a true artistic perspective to his projects and continues actively performing and composing outside of Nylon. In addition to his commercial compositions, he is the drummer and producer of CHAPPO, sings his own songs with Fancy Colors, produces artists of all different genres, and most recently toured with Bleachers.view more - Hires, Wins & BusinessPress Kitchen, Thu, 21 Sep 2017 14:41:48 GMT
