Michael “Nomad” Ripoll truly is a drifter who has made his presence known in countless cities around the world. However, he does not wander about without direction or purpose.
With his skills as a session guitarist, composer for TV and film, solo artist, and music director for Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds, his journey has led him around the world to touch the hearts of many with his guitars and various stringed instruments and the sound of his voice.
Some of his film work includes Men in Black 3, Kung Fu Panda, The Departed, Terminator 3, Into the Blue, and What Women Want.
His television score compositions include American Idol, The Today Show, Desperate Housewives, ABC World News, and So You Think You Can Dance, among many others.
The talented artists he has worked with include Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Sting, Carrie Underwood, Michael McDonald, Trisha Yearwood, Michael W. Smith, Justin Bieber, tobyMac, Kirk Whalum, CeCe Winans, Vanessa Williams, and many, many more.
Nomad has graciously taken the time to share of his wisdom and experience in the music industry and I’m stoked to have him as the guest on today’s show!
