His dark, operatic, and richly orchestrated score for House of Cards has earned him six Emmy® nominations, and the Best TV Composer of the Year Award at the 2016 World Soundtrack Awards.

Emmy Award-winning composer and pianist Kris Bowers creates genre-defying music that pays homage to his jazz roots with alternative and R&B influences. From scoring documentaries like Muse, and Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You, to scripted series including For The People, Dear White People, and Black Monday, his work is a testament to his versatility as an artist.In 2018, Bowers collaborated with director Peter Farrelly and actor Mahershala Ali on their critically acclaimed film Green Book.
