Uplifting

 

 

Audio MP3

Originally, this piece was a demo for an ABC drama. While the show never made it, this track has found a happy life since then as underscore for many car commercials. I love unexpected second lives.

Action – NFL

 

Audio MP3

 

One of the more unexpected pleasures I’ve had in recent years is creating music for NFL Films. Here’s some music to imagine yourself getting smashed by a 6’4″, 300 lb human missile on any given Sunday.

Dreamy

 

Audio MP3

Music for a Lifesavers commercial. They wanted dreamy and warm. I’ve always liked the feel of this piece (and, of course, the taste of Lifesavers).

Energy

 

Audio MP3

A nice burst of winter energy. This track has been featured in a number of commercials and radio spots.

Wistful Guitar

 

Wooden Sun Sketch

I love those times when a track comes together seemingly effortlessly. This track was one of those times. And it certainly helps tremendously when a guitarist like Chris Bruce is able to lend his talents.

Bouncy

McDonald’s will always have a special place in my heart– not because of the fish filet (though that craving does hit occasionally)– but because it was the first commercial I ever scored. Here’s a playful, quirky vibe to accompany a Happy Meal.

Playful

Audio MP3

 

A US commercial for a Dutch beer. I wanted it playful and fun– you know, music to drink by!

Holiday – Orchestral

 

Audio MP3

Originally written for a Honda campaign (Happy Hondadays), this somewhat over-the-top piece of winter wonderland fluff reminds me of what it’s like to feel warm while there are three feet of snow outside. And I need that reminder, cause we don’t get much of that here in Los Angeles.
