September 15, 2017

Composer Fred Coury's path to becoming a film and television composer is a fascinating one. Fred was the drummer for the rock band Cinderella and had an entire career as a rockstar before moving his focus to composition. Fred discusses his approach and process for the NBC series The Night Shift as well. We talk about the process of transitioning from being on stage in front of thousands of screaming fans to working alone in a studio. Fred talks about how his skills as a drummer and his background in classical composition helped him when he started writing to picture. Fred also shares the amazing story about how fellow rockstar Gene Simmons got him his first job as a composer to write for Gene's reality show. Fred's story is an inspiring one, and he brings an amazingly versatile background to the music he writes today.
