— The son of Iranian refugees, Grammy Award-winning producer and songwriter Rostam Batmanglij was born in Washington, D.C. in 1983. He attended Columbia University where he studied classical music, and simultaneously focused on songwriting, recording, and production in his own time. In his last year there he began producing the first full-length album of his career, Vampire Weekend's self titled debut which would be the first of three gold records with Rostam as producer.
The beginning of 2016 saw Rostam announcing his departure from Vampire Weekend's membership, with a door left open to further collaboration in songwriting and production. It also saw the official release of new Rostam solo music, including the songs “EOS”, “Wood”, and “Gravity Don't Pull Me”.
By the end of 2016 Rostam had contributed songwriting and production to several of the most important albums of that year.
2017 sees further opportunities to hear both new Rostam solo music as well as several unexpected
collaborations. And finally, after opening for Brian Wilson at Brooklyn's Northside festival and headlining a sold-out outdoor show at LA's Broad Museum in the summer 2016, the opportunity to see Rostam perform new music in some of the most exciting venues in America.
