In the covered wagon days of the Internet, I used to tell my Hollywood peers something like, “If you can tell a beautiful story around a campfire, you can tell a beautiful story in any medium.” Today I say, it started it starts with love, singing true. Here is an excerpt from my triple trilogy […]
What did I do when I got stuck in a bathroom (while doing laundry in said bathroom) in a cabin on 7 isolated acres on the side of a mountain on an island, where no one else was expected to visit for at least 3 days? I listened to my own knowing – and I […]

There’s a kind of cowboy code I like to live by. It’s a code of the West kind of code, that I’ve modified to fit me. And what matters to me. Where I talk straight and shoot straighter – when it’s necessary to shoot. Where I only say I’m going to do what I’m really going […]

President, Swell Music and Sound
Born in Israel’s central coast and hailing from a direct line of the tribe of Levi, music runs deep in Elad Marish’s blood. When his parents moved to the US Midwest in his early childhood and he was exposed to the sounds of American rock like AC/DC, Queen, and Kiss, there was no looking back. Depeche Mode, art rock, funk, and psychedelic sounds sealed the deal. Playing in bands from age 15 in the Valley and moving to the Bay Area in his 20s in pursuit of the music, he studied under Joel Jaffe and Studio D, learning the craft of engineering. After listening to that same country song more than 150 times, he quit the desk-side of the glass to follow his singer/songwriter instincts. At 28 he moved to Venice, played in his band, and started rOOm audio, learning the trade of audio post production and composing. He has written multiple albums’ worth of material and is in demand as a creative director, producer, sound designer and mixer for brands, agencies, and production companies worldwide under the banner of Swell Music + Sound.
