Personal profile

Bob Crawford, born in the Bronx, NY, is one of those rare people combining musicality, scholarship, and business acumen into one seamless individual. After graduating from the University of Virginia in 1971 (Phi Beta Kappa/Magna cum laude) Bob embarked on his musical career full time. From being the Musical Director, Guitarist, and Vocalist for the National Company of Paul Sills’ “Story Theatre”(1972-3) to the publishing of his book “Symmetric Cycles” by RMCO MUSIC, Bob has been actively involved in songwriting, arranging, producing, and studio work as a guitarist and vocalist for the past 30 years. In 1975, Bob founded Josandra Rehearsal Studios in NYC which became the home of such celebrated musicians as Pat Martino, Larry Harlow, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Mongo Santamaria, Slide Hampton, Sam Jones, Tom Harrell, Kevin Eubanks, Larry Coryell, John Abercrombie, Brand X, Tom Rush, John Hammond, Aztec 2 Step, Jocelyn Brown, Meat Loaf, Loretta Devine, and Roz Ryan among many others. In 1986 he acted as President of Lions’ Den Recording in NYC until 1990 when he formed RMCO MUSIC, his full-service production, recording, publishing, and consulting company. Still active today RMCO MUSIC boasts such varied clients as Larry Harlow, Mick Taylor, Jocelyn Brown, Maxine Brown, Ron Richardson, Vickilyn Reynolds, Carl Hall, Beverly Crosby, and Vondie Curtis-Hall. In 1991, Larry Harlow (2008 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award Winner and Latin Music Hall of Fame Member) recorded “My Time Is Now”(“Mi Tiempo Llego”) on the album of the same name, co-written by Bob Crawford and A. Dennis (Doc) Williams of the O’Jays released on Cache/Fania Records. In 2006, Maxine Brown (R&B Hall of Fame Member and Tony Award Winner) recorded another of Bob’s compositions “I Want To Be Loved” released on “From the Heart” (Mee Max Music, Inc.) He continues to write, publish, and seek music licensing/placement opportunities for underscoring/transitions in film, TV, radio advertising, and product placement in genres such as Pop, R&B/Soul, Crossover Jazz, Indie Rock, Dance, Singer-Songwriter, & New Country idioms to this day.
