Rick Meyer

Co-Founder, Creative Director

Rumble partner Rick Meyer has been involved in the Minneapolis music community in one way or another for the last 30 years. He’s played every club from here to New York, and has slept on pretty much every crappy motel bed along the way. His long hours in band vans and endless nights in studios give him a unique, slightly blurry perspective on the music business.

Rick has composed an estimated 1000+ commercials over his 20+ year post production music career, and has been responsible for the soundtracks to dozens of iconic ad campaigns for the likes of Target, BMW, Budweiser, Chevrolet, Macy’s, ABC TV, Porsche, Sesame Street, and many more. In the past few years, Rick has composed and produced a dozen albums, including one self-proclaimed to be the best record to listen to while you try to sleep on a 14 hour flight to Sydney.

Rick spends his free time traveling the world and driving fast.


Matt Kirkwold

Composer, Engineer

Having produced dozens of records for bands across the U.S. (American Taxi, Throw the Fight, Baltimore), Matt officially broke into the national spotlight for his production of Quiet Drive’s “When All That Was Left Is You” on Sony Records in 2006, which included a single that spent 27 weeks on the Billboard Top 40 charts and was recently certified gold by the RIAA.. Most recently, Rocket Club, in which both Matt and Rumble partner Don Smithmier were members, charted nationally on the Billboard Country Charts with their song, “One More Day” and “One Thing Beautiful”.
