Here’s my biography page. I have one because every composer has one.

I’m never sure what to write for these. It’s an uncomfortable task to praise yourself on your own website (and probably in the third person, to distance yourself from your self-adulation.) And of course, I’m supposed to only mention the good things; I shouldn’t bring up that time in highschool marching band where I lined up on the wrong side of the field before a halftime show.

Ultimately, I’d ask that you just listen to my music.

All that being said, I’ll list a few facts, if only to distinguish myself from the other handful of Dan Brandts out there who are composers:

-I attended Youngstown State University for a Bachelor’s in Music Composition, and graduated in 2010.

-I completed an internship at NFL Films in 2009. Did you know that the Mermaid Man and Barnacle Boy theme from Spongebob Squarepants was originally written for NFL Films by Sam Spence? Not sure what it says about me, but that was my biggest takeaway.

-I attended Colorado University in Boulder for a Master's is Music Composition, and graduated in 2013.

-Long walks on the beach.


I'd be happy to hear from you! Please contact me at dan [at]
