THE TRUSTED AUTHORITY IN VINTAGE MUSIC STYLES
Chief Executive Officer
At an early age, Perry Firoz was trained as a classical musician. He developed a love of music while growing up playing in his school’s concert, marching, and symphonic bands across multiple instruments like the violin, piano, trombone, and harp. Continuing on from high school, Perry further developed as a proficient classical pianist giving piano performances and recitals all through college.
After completing his higher education in Mathematics and Music, he joined the Air Force as an Officer.

Soon after his honorable discharge from military service in the Air Force, he launched Epic Music LA, a music and licensing company based in Los Angeles specializing in placing music in film, TV, radio, advertising, and trailers. After building an extensive global network of extremely talented composers and music relationships across the entertainment industry over the years, Epic Music LA has established itself as a major, influential player in the industry.
