About the Composers
Leo Birenberg has catapulted to the forefront of TV and film music, one of the industry’s most sought-after composers. His music is featured in the cultural sensation Cobra Kai, Hulu’s cringe comedy PEN15, and Netflix’s Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous. Working across a variety of genres and platforms, he has scored Disney+’s superhero film The Secret Society of Second Born Royals, AppleTV+’s musical Central Park, Adult Swim’s Tigtone, Amazon’s Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, Fox’s Son of Zorn, TruTV’s Adam Ruins Everything, and the critically-acclaimed documentaries Red Penguins, In Search of Greatness, and Red Army. He recently scored for Weird: The Al Yankovic Story and the indie smash-hit Plus One, which won the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award.
Leo has also been a steady collaborator of composer Christophe Beck, working as a writer, arranger, and producer and has contributed additional music to a number of films, including Frozen, Edge of Tomorrow, Ant-Man, and The Peanuts Movie. He and Christophe recently worked together on Helter Skelter: An American Myth, a deep and grisly look at the life of Charles Manson, from award-winning filmmaker and documentarian Lesley Chilcott.
Kentucky-born and Chicago-raised, Leo spent his childhood making movies and playing music, eventually combining the two by studying composition at NYU and USC. Originally a woodwind player and vocalist, Leo’s musical background is diverse, with influences from classical, jazz, bluegrass, show tunes, rock, world and electronic music.
Leo currently resides in Los Angeles. When not composing, he enjoys working out, baking bread, and going on walks with his fearsome beagle, Napoleon.
