Happy Birthday Bear McCreary!

Today we send birthday wishes to Bear McCreary, accomplished composer of The Boy movie, Syfy’s “Defiance” series, Starz’s “Outlander” series, and many more!  By the age of 24, McCreary was launched into pop culture history with his groundbreaking score to Syfy’s hit series “Battlestar Galactica,” for which he composed “the most innovative music on TV today” (Variety). It “fits the action so perfectly, it’s almost devastating: a sci-fi score like no other.” (NPR)

Io9.com declared Bear McCreary one of the Ten Best Science Fiction Composers of all time, listing him alongside legends John Williams, Jerry Goldsmith and Bernard Herrmann. In addition to earning his first Emmy® Award in 2013, McCreary was voted “Composers’ Choice Composer of the Year – Television” for 2013 by his peers in ASCAP, the first award of its kind.
An Emmy® Award winner for Da Vinci’s Demons, Bear recently earned his fourth Emmy nomination, his first for Outstanding Music Composition for a Series (Drama), with Outlander.
