A variety of music services tailored to your needs..

Studio Nine's main focus is on composing original music for clients to license or buy outright. My original music has been used in 1,429 episodes of over 461 different TV shows and movies. Placements on ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX and many cable television networks include "You", "Shameless", "The Voice", "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", "Full Frontal with Samantha Bee", "Jack Hanna's Wild Countdown", "Let's Make a Deal", "Last Call With Carson Daly", "The Great Christmas Light Fight", "One Life To Live", "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" and "Vice" among many others.

I have tracks in the 2017 feature film "1 Mile to You" staring Tim Roth and the 2014 feature "Hector and the Search for Happiness" directed by Peter Chelsom and starring Simon Peg, Rosamund Pike and Christopher Plummer. I also had a track in the 2013 feature film “Inescapable” starring Marisa Tomei and Alexander Siddig and in a national ad campaign for Blue Diamond almonds.

In addition to my library of existing music, I have extensive experience working on custom composition projects. Custom songwriting clients include "Macmillan Educational Publishing", both the Mexico and UK branches and Nashville based music education company "Quaver Music".

My secondary focus is as a traditional recording studio. I have experience in voice over recording, songwriters have recorded many demo's here and I've done numerous mastering projects for local artists.

I'm also happy to provide live music for all types of events. "Check out my solo guitar site."
