Josiah Bryan writes and produces epic soundtrack music, including cinematic orchestral pieces, internationally-themed soundtracks, electronic dance music, introspective piano solos, and lighthearted background music.

(2015) and Velocity

Taking piano lessons from the age of 7 until he was in college, he began by studying classical piano, then jazz in junior high school, playing in jazz bands from junior high until graduate school. He served for five years as a contemporary worship pianist at a local church and has played at numerous weddings and public events as a soloist, in small ensembles, and in big bands. In college he took classes in jazz improvisation and jazz harmony & arranging, giving him experience arranging for small and large ensembles.
