About PJ Rasmussen

The Journey of PJ Rasmussen

PJ Rasmussen is an internationally hailed composer and guitarist who splits time between scoring for media and displaying his virtuoso fretboard skills.

In 2013, PJ began his career as a hot-shot guitarist under mentor and jazz legend Bucky Pizzarelli, where he quickly gained recognition for his unique blend of rock, blues, folk, and jazz music. This led to the release of back-to-back charting albums of original compositions, featuring renowned GRAMMY-winners like Scott Robinson and Lauren Sevian.

In 2015, PJ Rasmussen formed the 21-piece Boardwalk Jazz Band as his compositional ambitions continued to grow. For the next few years, the band was his main musical outlet as a composer and performer, finally culminating in two nationally syndicated broadcasts (An American Christmas and Sounds of Summer) that have reached approximately 90% of American homes.

In 2019, PJ composed his first film score, and with the reshaping of the entertainment world after COVID, has gone on to score three award-winning films that have appeared in festivals on multiple continents.

Not surprisingly, the sound of the guitar plays a central roll in his music, but the context constantly shifts. From intimate accordions or violins to orchestras and ethnic music, PJ’s compositions are always bursting with melody and a unique sense of harmony that borrows from diverse sources like Will Nelson, Herbie Hancock, and Ravel.

PJ Rasmussen has worked with acclaimed clients such as John Deere, Trinity Broadcast Network, and the Florida Imperial Symphony. His music has left a lasting impact in various industries, from corporate branding to film festivals and YouTube channels.
