Jason Altshuler - Co-Founder/President - Jason has his 6th grade orchestra teacher to thank for his career in music. He was supposed to be placed in a woodshop class, but a scheduling error landed him in the beginner’s orchestra. This quickly spawned his unexpected lifelong passion for violins – not playing them, just passion for them. After he realized the drummer was the only one getting girls, he decided to lie his way into Advanced Orchestra as the house drummer. He could not then, nor can he now play the drums. Flash forward to college – he picked up his first guitar and drove his roommates crazy with his horrid daily renditions of “Sunshine of Your Love”. If you come by the ZOOmania studios, he will treat you to any number of cover songs, ranging from the aforementioned “Sunshine of Your Love” (not quite as horrid as it used to be) to a wicked acoustic version of some part of “Paranoid Android” that you sort of recognize. He walks softly and carries a big guitar. No violins. Now, a seasoned music supervisor/music editor/producer and composer, he and his childhood friend Jeremy Smith (after surviving 5 different bands together) founded ZOOmania Music with a very simple mission in mind: making great music for great projects.
Jeremy Smith - Co-Founder/CEO - Jeremy was forced to play piano when he was 7 years old. He hated it. He convinced his parents that he should play the alto saxophone at age 10. He hated it. He kept asking his parents for a drum set for Christmas. They wouldn’t buy him one – too loud. At 18 he bought his first guitar from Haight Ashbury Music and took lessons from Randy. He loved it. He calls himself a multi-instrumentalist now as he will attempt to play anything you put in his hands and make it work. Jeremy does not often play “Sunshine of Your Love” but is very experienced in translating Jason’s cover songs for those unsure of what they are hearing. He has confirmed in multiple interviews that he has, in fact, been in a bunch of bands with Jason in some form or another. He’s a producer and composer and enjoys everything from folk music to industrial. Jeremy is also an attorney, with roots from EMI/Capitol where he had the pleasure of watching the music industry scramble in a pre-iTunes/mid-Napster wave of litigation and horrible business models. He and Jason founded ZOOmania Music to bring great music to great projects.
