Classically trained in composition, songwriter and composer Stuart Rau began his musical journey at a young age sharing lead guitar and vocal duties in his high school rock band Back Back Low Punch. Though eventually arriving behind a pair of turntables in the Seattle electronica scene spinning everything from house to hip-hop alongside names like Donald Glaude and DJ Scene, Stuart remained an avid producer and songwriter for local vocalists and MC’s.
His 10 years of experience producing and recording bands have given Stuart Rau a unique and fresh approach to each project. Musically and creatively innovative, his passion and work ethic serve as two of his greatest weapons. Success across several genres lend to his discerning ear which extends to his favorable use of vintage gear and live musicians as opposed to samples and loops. Now operating out of his studio in Venice Beach Stuart has interacted with brands like Xbox, Legos, IFC and Marvel, and continues to bring his high energy and focus to nail each and every project he is involved with.
