Three-time Emmy award winning composer Jeff Beal has received his 13th Emmy nomination for his original score for the critically acclaimed Netflix television series House of Cards. Jeff is known for his diverse musical approach to film and tv scoring, having written award-winning scores for the films Pollock (2000), Appaloosa (2008), Wilde Salome (2011), and Blackfish (2013), and for television including the shows Monk (2002), Rome (2005), Carnivale (2003), The Company (2007), and House of Cards (2014).
Now based in Los Angeles, Jeff pursued a career as a jazz recording artist and composer in New York and then San Francisco, after studying composition with Christopher Rouse at the Eastman School of Music. He has recorded numerous recordings for Island, Mercury, and Koch Jazz record labels as a performer (trumpet) and composer. With musical roots as a jazz trumpeter and recording artist, Jeff’s compositions are infused with a deep understanding of improvisation, rhythm and spontaneity. Jeff’s work has been performed and recorded by world-renowned soloists, ensembles, and orchestras, including clarinetists Eddie Daniels and Chicago Symphony principal Larry Combs, the American Jazz Philharmonic, and the symphonies of St. Louis, Rochester, Pacific, Frankfurt, Munich, and Detroit.
