about

JONATHAN SANFORD

Jonathan Sanford is a Los Angeles-based composer, music producer, and multi- instrumentalist scoring music for films, television, and stage. He is known for bringing unique sounds and unexpected ideas to standard platforms through an almost-archaic analog exploration process.

Sanford is the composer for the noir television drama Dare Me, based on the novel by Megan Abbott, currently airing on USA Network. He recently completed an upcoming Netflix Series from Tilted Productions (GLOW, Orange Is The New Black, Weeds) and is working on a comedy feature directed by Kimmy Gatewood.

Sanford’s previous work includes That Moment When for PBSNews Hour/Facebook Watch, original songs for YouTube’s Weird City, score for the EKO interactive series Timeline, and Off-Broadway stage play Tomorrow In The Battle (Stripped Scripts). Sanford has also scored documentaries for Syracuse professor Richard Breyer, tracks for Run and Jump directed by Oscar- nominated Steph Green, and short films with premieres at Tribeca and Cannes Film Festivals.

Sanford was born in Baltimore, Maryland, studying piano and violin before deciding on the saxophone at age nine. Jonathan went on to study classical saxophone, under the tutelage of Dr. Frederick Hemke at Northwestern University, where he was also a member of the 1996 Big Ten Championship Football Team.
