Andrew Gross

Creative Director &
Composer

Andrew Gross is an award-winning composer, music supervisor and music licensing/asset management specialist, who also likes to roast coffee beans in his spare time.

After scoring his first studio feature at the age of 25 (Bio-Dome for MGM), Andrew has gone on to score over 30 features and 100 episodes of primetime TV. Some of his credits include: The King of Queens (CBS), Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny (New Line), and 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag (Orion). Andrew’s music has also been licensed to numerous films, including Nacho Libre (Paramount), The Good Girl (Fox), American Idol (ABC), and the trailer for Ratatouille (Disney).

He has won numerous BMI Film and TV Awards for his work on King of Queens, including Gold and Platinum Awards for his string arrangements on Tenacious D albums.

Andrew has a passion for helping filmmakers, producers, editors and music supervisors find the perfect music for their projects. Gross lives for that moment when he plays a piece of music under a scene and everyone watching it is immediately transported into the story, and leaving goosebumps on their arms.  

Recent projects include scoring and music supervising the Emmy nominated, Why We Fight (Verizon GO90) and The Dress Up Gang (TBS). He just wrapped music supervising the upcoming Netflix series, I Think You Should Leave. And he is currently scoring the documentary, Skin Deep: The Battle Over Morgellons.

Andrew teaches Music For Documentaries at New York Film Academy and is on the Board of Directors of The Production Music Association.

He lives in Topanga, CA with his wife and their dogs, chickens and goats.
