Commercial Work

Credits range from independent films to television commercials and syndicated shows. I work in pop, rock, americana and classical styles, and can write pieces to fit your project. Below are samples and quotes.

“You are amazing! I can’t believe you got this done so quickly”    – Sarah Beth Wiley, Project Manager and Graphic Arts Designer, The Boston Group

“Thanks for your beautiful work… at such short notice”     – Steve Ellis, Aurotone (UK)

“Steve understood A Curated World’s personality and how the brand needed to be presented.  He quickly composed several pieces of music that used alone or mixed could compliment any of our video footage.  When edited into our videos Steve’s music is not forced on you, rather it effortlessly teases out the emotion I wanted to evoke.”     – Kay McGowan, A Curated World

“You are a great musician.  I am making great mixes and stems out of [your cues]. Thanks for doing such great work!”   –Michael Bizar, LA commercial music composer

“Your stuff sounds great! [Food Network] gave me the task of hunting down music for [a new] show, and of course I thought of you.”   –Jason RheinElephant Quilt Productions
