Kevin Matley is an award-winning film composer. His work can be heard in feature films, documentaries, and advertisements for National Geographic, Apple, Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Ferrari, and more. Most notably is his recent collaboration with director Ricky Staub on the 2020 TIFF sensation Concrete Cowboy starring Idris Elba and Caleb McLaughlin. The Hollywood Reporter calls out Matley’s score, saying the crime and chase scenes were “boosted also by Kevin Matley's soulful score with subtle Western accents.” The American western drama released by Netflix is available for streaming now. Matley pours his heart and soul into every note and believes that when music and story are combined, something magical happens. Matley’s mission is to help filmmakers tell stories with the language of music and elevate narratives using unique and unconventional methods and scoring styles.
