Since the 1980s, US artist Jim Ragland has been composing and producing incidental, scene change and underscoring music for the professional theater. Projects have included tiny fringe theaters as well as The Kennedy Center. Credits include the Pulitzer Prize-winning Broadway production, "The Kentucky Cycle," and 100s of other shows - like Shakespeare, Chekhov, August Wilson, and Sam Shepard. With dozens of Spotlight Awards from The Seattle Times, a Lifetime Achievement Award from Theater Puget Sound, Variety says: “[Jim Ragland] creates worlds that capture the imagination."
Jim Ragland creates music that is perfectly aligned with a project's story line, and is a genius at combining styles, ethnicities and periods to come up with something that sounds familiar and catchy, but is still original.
