Brian Carr

Born: Prescott, Arizona
Lives: Los Angeles, California

Brian began working in Hollywood as an assistant and orchestrator on more than 150 episodes of Family Guy and American Dad in the storied scoring stages of Fox, Sony, Paramount, and Warner Bros. During which time he developed a deep affinity for what might be considered the musical language of Hollywood’s golden era. This led to a fruitful relationship with film makers David Dodson and Marius Balchunas, spanning 10 feature films since 2013, including the Russian Comedy of the Year in 2013 (8 First Dates), and the most successful film in the history of Ukrainian cinema (Me You He She, 2018), starring Volodymyr Zelensky.

In 2018 he moved into a new studio space in Burbank within the post production facility Aura Sound and Color. Housing an arsenal of vintage and modern synthesizers, a Hammond Organ, a vintage Winter upright piano, and an ever growing collection of percussive noise-makers, the suite of rooms include a main writing room, a booth, as well as an additional writing room and booth for an assistant or visiting artist. In September of 2018, Brian was commissioned by the Orpheus Male Chorus of Phoenix to write a work in commemoration of their 90th anniversary, which will be premiered in a concert series in April/May of 2019.

Recent work includes new title themes for shows on USA (Growing Up Chrisley) and Discovery (Breaking Homicide), as well as upcoming projects for Warner Chappell Production Music. He holds cats… as well as degrees in music composition from Pepperdine University (B.A.), and Arizona State University (M.M.)
