Meet the Composer
Composer Steve Syz started his musical career during his freshman year of college. Upon graduation, he changed his focus to trailer music and started to write for trailer music companies like Revolt Production Music, Songs To Your Eyes, and Astral Music Publishing. He worked closely with Gothic Storm, composing music for library albums and custom projects for about a year. He now works as a full time in-house composer at Ghostwriter Music.
His first solo trailer album, Valor, debuted on September 14, 2018 featuring 60 live string players. His other works include the introduction music for a pilot episode of a television show (Ghast Paranormal), 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 lived in the D.C. area for a couple of years before settling down in L.A. He was introduced to music at age 5, playing the piano until he discovered GarageBand in high school. 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.
