About Us


We're two guys who began composing and playing music together over 40 years ago. We created Grace Recording in 1974, as our production facility where we write, record, edit and duplicate almost every format of audio and video commercial production. You need 100 CD or DVD copies fast. No problem. You need a voice-over :60 commercial or an audition CD. No problem. You'd like an estimate on your next audio or video project. No problem. We chose a quiet little Hamden street on which to rig our mics. You'll find state-of-the-art Avid Pro Tools Audio and Adobe Premiere Pro Video workstations. You'll find veteran composers/editors with graduate degrees in music from Indiana University mixing in our audio and video suites. Best of all, you'll find personal service and reasonable rates. Give us a call.


Fred Rossomando, President


New Haven born and Indiana educated, Fred Rossomando follows in a long line of successful local musicians. He received his Masters Degree in Music for Instrumental Conducting from Indiana University. Fred studied conducting with Howard Barlow, the venerable Firestone and Bell symphonic maestro. Several of Fred's works have been published through Dick James Music, New York and London. His compositions include piano solos, choral and instrumental works in a wide range of styles. He has scored works for radio and television commercials, including Sesame Street programming. Fred recorded the music for a grammy-winning album for the Broadway hit Ma Rainey's Black Bottom. Fred was an instrumental/choral music teacher in the Wallingford, CT Public Schools and at Quinnipiac University, where he touched the lives of countless students for 40 years.

Originally from Kilgore, TX, Lee earned degrees in music from the University of Miami and Indiana University.  He studied clarinet with Herbert Blayman of the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra, William Klinger of the Miami Philharmonic, and has played under composer Aaron Copland. In the equally serious world of commercial production, Lee is a two-time winner of the American Song Festival, appeared on the first New York Songwriter's Showcase, and has scored for films, radio and television commercials.
