A native of Santa Monica, California, film composer and recording artist Steve Greaves has been heralded as “the modern child of Herb Alpert and Henry Mancini” by Music Connection Magazine and Luxuria music radio’s Carl Howard, host of Space Patrol, calls him “the Now Sound of absolute now”!
With a background that includes influential L.A. power pop bands Hello Disaster and Johnny Rebel, Steve’s early love of film music compelled him to focus on the craft of writing and producing music for picture in earnest at the New School in New York City and later the film scoring program at UCLA.
In 2003, Steve was selected from among hundreds of applicants by the Society of Composers and Lyricists for its exclusive mentor program, a unique opportunity to meet and work with many of the finest composers, musicians and technicians in Hollywood. At that time, Steve also worked closely with Canadian composer Matthew McCauley producing the score for two seasons of the Gene Roddenberry sci-fi series Andromeda.
Steve’s recent projects include scoring an award-winning broadcast campaign for AMC’s Mad Men season 5, scoring and music supervision for director James Pillion’s short film Bug, music library development, interactive branding initiatives, feature film scoring and soundtrack placements including The Change Up, Jersey Shore, Charmed, Burn Notice, The Carson Daly Show, Big Rich Texas, MTV Cribs, NY Ink, Auction Kings and many others. Steve’s score for the feature documentary Tin Can Sailors Will Not Be Forgotten won the Audience Choice Gold at the 2012 Park City Film Music Festival. His score for the short film Commentary premiered in Park City at Sundance 2011.
