Custom Music For Media
The Perfect Music For Every Project
I collaborate with filmmakers and brands to create resonant, emotionally impactful custom music for ad campaigns, films, television, and digital media.
Do you want to have confidence in the music?
The wrong music can have a catastrophic impact on your final product. You need to have confidence that your unique vision and story are coming across in the music.
Sick of having no control over the music?
When you use stock music in your film, you lose control over one of the most powerful tools for impact. You need to be able to decide what you want your music to say.
Tired of forcing stock music to fit?
Without custom music, you have to scroll through endless music libraries and piece together different tracks just to force a round peg into a square hole.
What My Clients Have to Say
We love working with Keech on custom compositions! He is a great collaborator - really listens to what the clients are trying to achieve with each track, then brings a variety of creative options to the table. He is fantastic to work with in every way - his quality of work is excellent and also demonstrates an understanding of the commercial space with its limitations and opportunities (i.e. telling a brand story in :15 - :30 seconds!) His communication is prompt, and timelines are always met. Highly, highly recommend!

The music matters.
I care deeply about writing incredible music for your project. The music that I write for you will be 100% original and crafted to your vision. I want you to succeed. I want you to win and I want your film to be something you’ll be proud of forever.
What do you get when you hire me?
Control of the Music
Tell me exactly what you are looking for and we will work together to create the emotion, instrumentation, genre, and dynamics of the music to tell your story.
Collaborators in Every Genre
I work with world-class studio musicians and musical collaborators in every genre so that I can better serve any vision you might have.
Get Back Your Time
Wading through oceans of stock music to find a track that works for your project is time-consuming and exhausting. Gain back your time and energy and let me handle the heavy lifting.
Customizable License Agreement
Every project is different and requires its own licensing agreement. Let me know what you need from non-exclusive agreements to full buy-outs.
Every advertisement tells a different story. With each new project, I work to understand and elevate that story through the music. I believe that as humans, emotions are what drive us to action. And music is our most powerful tool for expressing those emotions.
Stephen was great to work with and made the process of creating a custom score easy. His talent and experience show in every note. Having custom music in our work really elevates the finished product. I’m looking forward to working with him again!
Justin Sweidel | Producer | Timber Pictures
Stephen not only knows how to write great songs, but he understands how to nail the correct tone and vibe for brands which is incredibly important when delivering to my clients. I have no doubts when I bring Stephen on to score that he will hit all the different touchpoints a brand is looking for in a custom score.
Andy Reale | Director, Creative Director | Climate
Working with Stephen was such a fulfilling experience. I still remember how giddy I felt after he played me the theme for the first time. It was everything I wanted and more… He always elevates my ideas while maintaining an emphasis on story and character. His music took the film to the next level.
