Music Composer and Producer
Film • Television • Multimedia
SHAUN DREW is a music producer, composer and arranger of distinction. His multi-colored and modern sound palette is marked with sophistication and maturity, and by an ability to harmoniously balance technical prowess with a visceral, emotive, often spiritual quality.
Shaun is known for his work as a film and TV composer, and for his collaborations with various LA-area artists and bands as an arranger and producer. A prolific writer for strings, Shaun often infuses his signature style with the orchestral sound by employing guitars, drums, keyboards, bass, ambient textures, and percussion, Shaun's primary instrument. Haunting melodies and intricate rhythmic phrasings are among the hallmarks of his compositional style.
Since 2015, Shaun has worked for Warner Brothers Animation as the composer for DC Superhero Girls, the original animated franchise, which WBA, along with its consumer products partner, Mattel, has developed into a billion-dollar brand. To date, Shaun has created nearly 500 minutes of original music for the brand's TV special, Superhero High, multiple video releases and on-demand content. Shaun also composed music for the 75th anniversary DC Comics documentary, Secret Origin: The Story of DC Comics. He created over 80 minutes of orchestral score in less than three weeks for the project. Shaun contributed the main musical themes for The Kid: Chamaco (Maya Entertainment), an indy boxing drama starring Martin Sheen and Michael Madsen, which was shot in Mexico. His first solo recording effort, an ambient album called The Great Dissolve, was met with positive critical reviews, garnering comparisons to pioneering electronic composers Brian Eno and Wendy Carlos. The record was honored as a finalist by the Independent Music Awards.
Shaun completed the original score to the horror feature film The Vault, which stars James Franco, Taryn Manning and Francesca Eastwood. A US and UK theatrical release occurred during September 2017.
