Meet the Composer
Composer Steve Syz was introduced to music at age 5, attending piano lessons until he discovered GarageBand in high school. His musical interests sparked during his freshman year of college, where he focused on his craft to compose 'epic music'. Upon graduation, he changed his focus to trailer music and started to write for trailer music companies like Gothic Storm, Revolt Production Music, Songs To Your Eyes, and Astral Music Publishing. He worked as an in-house composer at Ghostwriter Music, but later pursued a more freelance life. He now works out-of-house with Ghostwriter Music and Gothic Storm.
His first solo trailer album, Valor, debuted on September 14, 2018 featuring 60 live string players under Songs To Your Eyes. His other works include a short film animation (The Last Raindrop), and various video games (Rolan's Quest, Gloop's Adventure).
He was awarded 'Best Sound' for his score on a 48-Hour Film Project called, 'The Cure'. He was also a finalist for his work on a promotional stop-motion project for the book, 'Divine Comedy' by Glen Scrivener.
Born in New York City, Steve spent his childhood abroad in Singapore and Sydney, Australia. He attended Trinity College in Hartford as a music major, and was accepted to the prestigious summer film scoring institute at University of Cincinnati's College-Conservatory of Music. He lived in the D.C. area after graduation before settling down in L.A.
