Welcome to UpCellar Music, the site of Film and TV composer/producer, electronic music design award-winning performing songwriter and keyboardist Stan Swiniarski.
I compose and produce instrumental music heard in numerous shows on a variety of television networks. I work in many genres such as: dramedy, pop/EDM, electronica, orchestral, country and world. My music has been placed in show genres including but not limited to: reality TV, competition shows and documentary programs. I love the musicological aspect of producing for Film/TV, giving me the chance to research and explore new types of music.
Electronic Music Design
II have done synthesizer programming for a number of musical productions for the acclaimed Ogunquit Playhouse in Maine.
I have written many songs throughout the years. I released two self-titled albums, and have charted on the Americana Music and Roots Music Report charts. As an independent songwriter, I have written a number of songs which were released by new artists in the US and Canada. Some of my songs have also been placed on television shows.
I am a classically trained pianist, which started at age 6. In my development I transitioned to pop and rock as a multi-keyboardist, adding electronic instruments to my arsenal. This led me to Berklee college of music where I received my degree, and later on returned to teach songwriting. Aside from solo performing, I have also played and toured with a number of artists, opening for headliners such as George Jones, Dwight Yoakam, Kellie Pickler, Colt Ford, Jeff Bates, Gary Allan, and America.
I have and continue to write and produce songs for the Songs of Love Foundation, donating my abilities to create custom songs for children with serious medical and emotional challenges. I have also been a volunteer instructor for the W.O. Smith Music School in Nashville, TN, giving lessons to children from low-income families.
