NEW YORK, USA // Ryan Nach is the Executive Producer and Composer for Knock It Out Music, a company he founded that specializes in scores for Ads, TV Shows, and Original Content. After interning in marketing at Def Jam in 2005, he started a label out of his college dorm room. There he cut his teeth collaborating with artists and producing hip-hop tracks including the Bucknell Men's Basketball Team's "Bison Anthem" theme song, a track that was played on ESPN following the school's historic upset over Kansas in the NCAA tournament.
His ad composing career began while working his first job out of school as an accountant with Ernst & Young. After meeting the head of an NYC ad agency during his time there, he seized an opportunity to compose his first pair of broadcast spots. While calculating quarterly tax payments for clients at his 9-5, he would run to the bathroom stall to take phone calls from the agency creatives about the music revisions, knocking those notes out from 9pm-5am. In 2011, he left his accounting job to form Knock It Out Music and hasn’t looked back.
His music can be heard in media for MasterCard, Nissan, Prudential, Verizon, Reebok, Adidas, and around 400 episodes of TV including the NCAA Final Four, NBA Games, NFL Games, MTV's Catfish, Real Housewives of Miami, Love & Hip-Hop, and more. Most recently, he worked on a CGI piece for Stink Studios as a part of Google’s “Small Thanks”, a platform that gives companies on Google Maps an opportunity to send a special personalized animated appreciation to their clients. While Ryan loves the studio, he views himself as a connector who is truly in the business of helping others.
