Songwriter/Producer/Musician Rick Rowan was originally signed by Barton Music (publishers of many classic songs) when he arrived in Los Angeles in the 1980s.
Moving to Nashville a few years later, Rick co-wrote with several #1 hit country songwriters. His songs have been recorded by major label acts, and have been featured on numerous TV shows, including The Daily Show w/Jon Stewart, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Love It Or List It, MIami Animal Police and many others.
Now back in California, Rick has recently released LOST AND FOUND. Written and produced by Rick, this collection of melodic instrumental pop music features performances by some of the music industry's finest session players -- studio musicians who have recorded with Bette Midler, Barry Manilow, Dan Fogelberg, Burt Bacharach, Julio Igesias, Diana Ross, Billy Joel, George Benson, and countless others.
Besides Barton Music, Rick has written for several music publishing companies in the past (including Famous Music, Pride Music, Welk Music, and Chappell Music). Rick now has his own independent music publishing company, Colella Songs (ASCAP).
