Logan Nelson scores compositions that evoke thrilling textures unique to each project. He was named the Best Young International Composer at the World Soundtrack Awards in Ghent, Belgium. Logan attended the festival with Oscar-winning director Barry Jenkins who named him a “must watch composer.”

Logan just composed the music for Season 2 of the Emmy-winning Apple TV+ drama, The Morning Show, in collaboration with Carter Burwell.
Logan’s score for Showtime’s Nothing Lasts Forever, directed by Sundance-winning director, Jason Kohn, received rave reviews, with the Hollywood Reporter describing the music as “mining the genre [of a ‘70s conspiracy thriller with] sometimes the spritely kick of a heist film." Logan is a frequent collaborator of Renan Ozturk and Taylor Rees, having scored projects with them for National Geographic and SONY. On the narrative side of film, he scored Straight Up; a romantic comedy on Netflix starring Randall Park and Katie Findlay.

As an additional composer for Kris Bowers, Logan wrote music on Netflix’s critically-acclaimed Dear White People and ABC’s For the People. Following these projects, they worked on the Oscar-winning film, Green Book, compiling both the original score as well as many of the source tracks. Logan previously worked at Hans Zimmer’s Remote Control Productions.

Logan has an EP, Lavender Echoes, on 1631 Recordings and Decca Records. His art piece with generative artist, Brendan Dawes, whose work is found at the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA), was recently auctioned at Sotheby’s.
Logan resides in Los Angeles, California.
