Welcome to the official web site of Grammy and multiple Emmy Award winning composer Brian Keane.
Multiple Emmy award winning composer, Grammy award winning producer, and noted guitarist Brian Keane has scored literally hundreds of films and television shows, and produced over 150 albums, mostly from his studio in the woods of Connecticut. His music has been hailed critically as "indelible and breathtaking" by the Los Angeles Times, "piercingly beautiful" by The New York Times and "masterful" by Newsweek, and he has been called a "musician's musician" by Downbeat, a "composer's composer" by The Hollywood Reporter, and “one of the most impressive musicians of the decade” by the editor of Billboard magazine.
Brian receives his 20th Emmy nomination for music composition, for the Fritz Mitchell film, "It's Time", (also nominated for best documentary, and narrated by long time Brian Keane Music engineer, Jeff Frez-Albrecht). Other recent releases include a commission for the 75th anniversary of the American Ballet Theatre, premieres nationally as a special on the PBS series "American Masters" on May 15th, "Debt of Honor" a film about America's wounded veterans will air on PBS later this year as well. "Enquiring Minds" a quirky festival documentary about the National Enquirer is out on NetFlix, and Neil Leifer's "Keepers of the Streak" aired on ABC and ESPN as a Super Bowl special in January, and as part of ESPN's "30 for 30 series" which just won an Emmy for best sports documentary series. Brian is finishing up work on his musical library which will release later this year, and at work on Ric Burns' "Pilgrims", a joint project of PBS and BBC, which will air nationally this November. Brian will also be making an appearance at the New Haven Symphony on May 28th.
