Ali A. Memarian is the in-house Music Supervisor for Barefoot Music. He grew up living sort of a musical double life, with one foot in formal classical training, and the other in the Southern California alternative garage rock scene before leaving for Boston to attend Berklee College of Music. Graduating with a focus on songwriting in 2006, he returned to Los Angeles where he began working for Barefoot Music. Between this and stints in music publishing, licensing and a gig as music librarian for CBS Radio he was inspired toward a master’s degree in Musicology at Claremont Graduate University. These days he is rarely ever seen without his laptop and a pair of headphones, as he freelance writes for various art and music publications and puts his musicological training to use managing Barefoot Music’s entire catalogue of work.
