Music for Others
As a freelance musician, I've collaborated with Fleet Foxes, The Metropole Orchestra, Benny Sings, Bauer, GOSTO, members of Steely Dan, The B-52s, The Free Design, Pedro the Lion, and more.
Below, find out about the more than 30 recorded releases (albums, singles, commercials, film scores) I've worked on over the last decade, as a composer, producer, vocalist, lyricist, and/or multi-instrumentalist.
For new clients, I'm currently offering services as a COMPOSER // PRODUCER (a composer who also produces completed recordings of said compositions) for art installations and film. Return clients can feel free, as always, to reach out about any service I've offered you in the past, even if that was a haircut or cupcakes.

Composer // Producer For HirE
Gwen Thomas (B.A. Music Theory and Composition, 2004, Seattle Pacific University), held two “Composer in Residence” positions by the age of 22, then carried out a one-on-one apprenticeship in composing, songwriting, orchestration, and producing under master film score composer Chris Dedrick (2007 - 2010, Toronto).
Since 2008, she scores and fully produces music and soundscapes, combining orchestral/ symphonic influences from classic Hollywood, with inventive vocal harmonies, and electronic elements. Her work in film, ads, and art installations has been heard around the world.
“[Gwen] did a great job in understanding what my music needed and what I prefer when choosing sounds that I think suit my music ... I still enjoy listening to ... the tasteful details and dimensions she added.”
— Tamara van Esch (aka Mevrouw Tamara)
