Based in Atlanta, Ross Lara is a platinum selling music producer, engineer and programmer. He is sought after by highly successful music artists the world over, including Paul Oakenfold, Backstreet Boys, and K-Pop sensations SHINee and VIXX, to bring his particular blend of notable songwriting and electronic programming to their worlds.
Having played an integral role in the success of numerous artists around the world, Ross decided in 2013 to take a new direction. It was time to hone his craft, to honor his creative vision and to start taking promising emerging artists under his wing. This mission, coupled with his desire to create innovative compositions and exceptional sound design in an industry of increasing non-conformity, led to the birth of Archipelago Entertainment. The Company is dedicated to the production of outstanding musical recordings and the development of promising performing artists. Archipelago's first artist, Adara, will make her debut this Spring, followed by a collaborative project between Ross and former EMI/Virgin Records singer/songwriter Dave Cook.
The adventure aspect of Archipelago will capture the greatness within people. The company's partnership with GoPro Cameras will allow international, multi-generational audiences to experience the thrill of global excursions, distant competitions and monumental discoveries as if they were there.
With his insatiable appetite for the art of music production, Ross Lara continues to be an inspiration in the studio, blending his love of vintage equipment with his instinct for the latest industry trends. This passion results in a singular sound that, when combined with his humble approach, continues to make him a sought after collaborator and one of the uncommon talents in his field.
