  • Elad Marish, 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.
