Bio

Corey Allen Jackson is a music composer for films, television and video games. He is also a conductor, keyboardist, guitarist and music producer. He was formally trained as a classical composer, earning bachelor and master degrees with honors from the University of Oklahoma. He then moved to Paris for additional training at the renowned La Schola Cantorum where he studied the famous Boulanger Method. He entered the world of film and television by composing music to NBC’s Starting Over and quickly began scoring indie films. Jackson’s fresh musical approach drew the attention of Oscar-nominated animator/director/producer Bill Plympton. Their collaboration produced Sundance and Tribeca successes Hot Dog, Shut-Eye Hotel and Idiots and Angels amongst other projects. Jackson’s darkest writing has earned him a horror fan base through many films including Left in Darkness, several projects for SyFy and I Spit on Your Grave 2010. The latter, unrated, received a limited release in the U.S. and was an international box office success. It has since become a top-earning Anchor Bay DVD.

Jackson recently scored Hansel & Gretel Get Baked (Lara Flynn Boyle, Molly Quinn, Cary Elwes), MTV’s animated series Good Vibes and Fox Digital’s Wolfpack of Reseda. A sought-after collaborator, Jackson has contributed to many productions, including Spider-Man 2, Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore and Vampires Suck. Video game credits include the award-winning James Bond: From Russia with Love, The Punisher, and the smash-hit The Simpsons. He also worked on the Grammy-winning Ozomatli album Street Signs.

Corey’s versatility as both an orchestral composer and contemporary guitarist and producer is immediately evident in his work, his mastery of both mediums lending itself to dramatic sensibility where a score can be utterly terrifying in one moment and lighter than air in another. He owes some of this versatility to being equally at home in the rock/pop and classical worlds his rock background led him to be classically trained as an orchestral composer both in the US and Paris.
