As the creative force behind BloomNote Music Productions, ASCAP award winning composer Nate Bloom has scored and produced music for short films, commercials for radio/TV and released a CD of instrumental music. Born in that great music city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, Pa., Nate’s favorable concert reviews go all the way back to his kindergarten report card. He's been busy composing, producing, performing and teaching music ever since. After receiving a Bachelor of Music degree in 1986 from the University of Miami, he took a job as a production assistant for a small direct-response advertising agency, Lawrence Butner Inc. He soon left the agency side to team up with commercial composer, recording artist-band leader and trombonist, Rod Levitt, where he gained valuable experience repping, producing and contracting. While employed by the American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers from 1988 until 2004, he earned a Masters degree in Jazz Studies from the Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University, studying with such notables as the late jazz guitar legend Ted Dunbar, pianist Kenny Baron and bassist Larry Ridley. At ASCAP he worked with the biggest names in the business, including Burt Bacharach, Garth Brooks, Hal David, Robert Flack, Art Garfunkel, David Gates, Hank Jones, Lyle Lovett, Kenny Rankin, Lucy Simon and Dionne Warwick, among others. Today he continues his association with the organization as a writer and publisher member. He can be found appearing regularly as a freelance guitarist in the NYC/Tri-State area in a wide variety of ensembles and venues. Performances and collaborations include a diverse and internationally recognized collection of recording artists such as: Ava Barbar, Alex Bugnon, The Clickettes, Dick Dale, The Enchanters, Joe Feeney, The Harptones, Jimmy Knepper, Rod Levitt, Harold Maybern, Lillian Moss, Mike Stern, The Solitaires, Two Hearts, Dave Valentine, and The Willows, among others. He still makes time to teach and lives in New York City with his wife, Mary, son, Max and Shetland sheepdog, Parker.
