Speaker Bio
Two-time Emmy-nominated composer Nathan Barr has received critical acclaim for his unmatched versatility, incorporating eclectic instruments from musical cultures across the world into his scores. This versatility for which he has become known was displayed most recently in Amazon Studios/Legendary Television’s hit fantasy period drama Carnival Row, starring Orlando Bloom and Cara Delevingne, FX’s Emmy-winning drama Fosse/Verdon, and Miramax’s Uncle Frank, written and directed by Alan Ball and starring Paul Bettany. Nathan is currently hard at work scoring Hulu’s upcoming series The Great, starring Elle Fanning and Nicolas Hoult, and Ryan Murphy’s Netflix drama Hollywood. Nathan’s hallmark adaptability has led him to scoring a diverse roster of some of television’s biggest shows. He has scored all six seasons of FX’s The Americans, starring Keri Russell and Matthew Rhys, which earned him an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music. Nathan’s music can also be heard in all seven seasons of HBO’s Emmy-winning and fan-favorite series True Blood and Netflix’s Hemlock Grove, for which Nathan earned his second Emmy nomination for the main title theme. In 2018, Nathan returned to score the third season of Amazon’s top show and acclaimed con-man drama Sneaky Pete, starring Giovanni Ribisi, as well as season 2 of AMC’s multi-generational western epic The Son, starring Pierce Brosnan. Nathan has a long record of scoring successful films as he approaches his 40th feature. A frequent collaborator with gore-horror master Eli Roth, Nathan scored his early cult-classics Cabin Fever and Hostel, and in 2018 scored Roth’s family-horror film The House with a Clock in its Walls, released by Amblin Entertainment/Universal Pictures and starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. Barr currently resides in Los Angeles.
