Rob Teehan began his musical journey studying tuba and classical composition and at age 27, he became the youngest JUNO nominee (Canada’s Grammy equivalent) for “Classical Composition of the Year” in the history of that category. Rob has written and arranged for classical artists across North America and was Composer-in-Residence for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, Sinfonia Toronto, and the Church of the Redeemer. Branching out from his classical training, Rob became known around Toronto for his ability to play bass lines on sousaphone in any genre, and toured Canada and Europe with a multitude of bands including Lemon Bucket Orkestra, the Heavyweights Brass Band, and SATE. Rob has recorded on close to 40 albums, often serving as producer or co-producer, and has earned four JUNO and nine Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.
After completing the Canadian Film Centre Slaight Music film scoring program, Rob moved to Los Angeles where he currently resides. He brings his eclectic background and well-travelled ear into his film scoring projects, which have included award-winning documentaries “The Babushkas of Chernobyl”, "Take Light", “The Sugar Bowl”, and the Oscar-shortlisted “Frame 394”. For the feature film “The People Garden” he co-wrote and produced two Japanese pop songs; for the historical epic “Bitter Harvest” he spent three weeks traveling across Ukraine recording rare village folk musicians. Current projects include the feature-length documentary “Fighting In The Dark" and the upcoming feature film "Scarborough" based on the award-winning book by Catherine Hernandez.
As in-house composer at One Callery Productions, headed by four-time Emmy award-winning composer Sean Callery, Rob has contributed to many hit TV shows including “Jessica Jones”, "The Hot Zone", "Bull", “Homeland”, “Elementary”, “Designated Survivor”, “Bones” and “24: Legacy”. Rob is also an indie folk singer-songwriter who performs under the stage name, Kalon Hart, and recently released his debut record "Love Is Surrender".
