BIO

Roy Oommen is an award-winning music producer, arranger and composer who leads the team at Silent Stone Music based out of the Toronto area. As an artist having grown up in the Greater Toronto Area, Roy learned to play the piano at the early age of 4. His music education includes classical training from the Royal Conservatory of Music, as well as jazz education from Humber College, partnered with private instruction in various styles.

His work as a producer and arranger over the last 25 years can be heard on recording projects from artists such as the Juno Award-winning gospel group Toronto Mass Choir, singer/songwriter Mark Masri (featured on David Foster's PBS special 'Hitman'), Integrity Music songwriter/recording artist Greg Sykes, singer/songwriter Kelita (several-time Juno Award and GMA Canada Covenant Award nominee).

Having learned to create music on an old Atari STE computer, a 4-track reel-to-reel player, and a Boss DS-330 synth module, Roy co-produced his first project for a local artist which went on to receive Certified Gold status in the Philippines. His first full album as the sole producer won a Canadian Juno Award, and numerous other awards.

In 2004, Roy began to broaden his creativity into the realm of composing music for motion pictures and television. His first music score for a 4-part TV series, 'Journey To Christmas’, was nominated for a Canadian Screen Award for Best Original Music.

 

Silent Stone Music has successfully created music scores for several documentaries including:

- 'The Sky Is Not The Limit' (featuring International Space Station Commander Chris Hadfield)

- 'The Goal of The Century' (featuring hockey legend Paul Henderson)
