Between composing scores for film and television, producing and mixing for artists, and performing on guitar and keyboards, Samuel Jones has been a part of the vibrant Los Angeles music scene for over a decade.

Sam’s scoring work has encompassed a wide range of projects from Netflix’s 2018 animated feature Next Gen - featuring a 65 piece orchestra recorded at London’s AIR Lyndhurst - to six seasons of TNT’s hit drama series Animal Kingdom.  As both solo artist and prolific collaborator, Sam has contributed music ranging in style from electronic minimalism to lush orchestral to over 15 feature films, as well as TV, documentaries, games, video installations for internationally renowned artists, and advertising campaigns.

Apart from the screen media world, Sam has lent technical expertise and creative skill as a producer, recording engineer, and mixer to a variety of artists and music projects, including saxophonist Sam Gendel, experimental singer-songwriter-producer Katie Gately, jazz pianist Richard Sears, and avant-garde composer Ethan Braun.  His production and guitar work with DYAN resulted in the Looking For Knives album and Absence EP, both of which have been mined by music supervisors for major network TV and streaming placements.

Sam was born in New York and raised in Los Angeles, where he studied guitar and film scoring at University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music.  He spends his time away from the studio devouring films from around the globe, reading literary fiction and philosophy, and roaming the hills of Glendale.
