Los Angeles-based composer and conductor Brian Ralston has spent the past 15 years creating compelling, heart-pounding, uplifting, and beautifully melodic tracks that delight and inspire audiences. His creative gifts lend themselves to an extremely rich and beautiful sound that can not only be seen, but felt throughout his works.
After studying film music composition and conducting at the University of Arizona under film/TV composer Jeff Haskell, Ralston completed graduate level work in the Scoring for Motion Pictures & Television program from the University of Southern California in 2002. His studies and musical background sparked an extraordinary desire to enhance the heart of a film’s narrative with the language of music.
Ralston is best known for his work on the film score for Crooked Arrows, the first mainstream Hollywood movie about lacrosse, starring Brandon Routh and Gil Birmingham, directed by Steve Rash. The score reflects richly thematic melodies set against the thrill of victory and the pains of defeat in the action-packed sports drama, which has won him much praise within the film community. Most recently, Ralston worked on the intimate score to the dramatic love story Being Rose, which will hit theaters nationwide January 2019.
