Theme Songs galore!

It just occurred to me how many theme songs I’ve written for various organizations and purposes. I thought I’d lay them out here to both share and for me to take tally and keep track of them.

For Nintendo, I had the pleasure of writing three theme songs. I composed the Nintendo Minute theme and jingle, the Nintendo Power podcast opening theme, and the Nintendo eShop The Download theme, which has become wildly popular on its own for some reason. All were an absolute honor and I still can’t get over how many millions of people hear these songs every month.

For game storefront and indie game publisher Humble Bundle I had the honor of composing their official jingle and boot logo. This song and its accompanying logo video can be found in the introduction of all the games they release! It was most recently used in the intro of the wonderful game Wandersong.

And I’ve done a lot of official theme songs for Podcasts out there. Here are some of my favorites:

And more are coming. Some very exciting ones, too! For now, enjoy this playlist of my best theme songs and I’ll update this post and the playlist as more are released.



Wizard of Legend soundtrack is out Right now!


Wizard of Legend launches tomorrow on Nintendo Switch, PS4, Xbox One, and PC but my soundtrack is out a day early on several music platforms. Speaking of early: early reviews are still trickling out but the word seems good already! I was delighted to see that Bonus Stage called my work "an absolutely sweeping and enthralling score."

It would mean the world to me if you'd buy and listen to this soundtrack. It's available now on iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, Spotify, Line Music, and Tidal. And Bandcamp! It will release on additional platforms in the coming days and I'll update this post accordingly as they come up.

I wrote this soundtrack over the course of a year, working with developers Contingent99 along the way to carefully match the game's various stages and challenges. Given that the game features super fast gameplay that revolves around magic spells and combos, I wanted to mix sharp, high-tempo synthesizer work with soaring orchestral backing. It took us awhile to figure out how that would work and we definitely went back to the drawing board a couple of times. I truly hope it does this awesome game justice.

Please let me know what you think!


I got to work with one of my heroes again!

Last year had me working with two greats from the Japanese game music world. I teamed up with Hiroki Kikuta (Secret of Mana, Soul Caliber V, more ) for the soundtrack of a role-playing game that is coming later in 2017. And I worked on an animated short with Norihiko Hibino (Metal Gear series, Bayonetta, many more) too! 

This year sees the release of a PC game called Toricky, and Kikuta and I teamed up on that one as well. Well, he laid out the main theme and I held the rest of it down. It's a flying game, so I wrote songs that were airy and light. It's out on Steam now, and if you're interested in both the game and my soundtrack, there's a discoutned bundle of game and soundtrack available!
