A self-described L.A. gutter punk in his youth, Rosen discovered jazz as a teenager and began devoting his every waking moment to the bass. Before even graduating high school, he was making national headlines for helping resurrect the career of jazz legend Henry Grimes, who’d been thought dead for decades, and generating serious waves around Los Angeles for his performances with luminaries like Bennie Maupin, Arthur Blythe, and Nels Cline. After college, Rosen dove into the world of film and television, recording with Oscar-winning composer Michael Giacchino on scores for everything from Super 8 and Star Trek to Fringe and LOST in addition to serving as music director for massive live broadcasts like NBC’s Fourth of July and Christmas in Rockefeller Center specials. On top of his soundtrack work, Rosen served as music director at L.A. hotspots Bardot and The Sayers Club, where he found himself performing live with Prince, will.i.am, Jamie Foxx, Perry Farrell, Bruno Mars, Macy Gray, Common, and countless other celebrities. Adding a slew of other instruments to his repertoire along the way, Rosen also managed to become a prolific session musician and producer/engineer, boasting a resume that includes the likes of Phantogram and Tinashe among others.
“I’m not afraid to talk about depression or anxiety or getting caught up in the materialistic trappings of the world,” says Rosen, a devout practicer Buddhism. “Enlightenment isn’t about the absence of darkness, it’s about learning to be okay with the mixture of light and dark that’s inside all of us.”
