Mark Isham is an electronic music innovator, jazz artist, and prolific film composer. Isham’s ability to create unforgettable melodies, combined with his willingness to experiment with innovative musical palettes, has earned him accolades including Grammy and Emmy awards, and Oscar and Golden Globe nominations. Isham’s inimitable musical voice is evident in his memorable scores for award-winning features including the 2021 Oscar-winning Judas and The Black Messiah, Crash, A River Runs Through It (Oscar and Grammy Nominations) with Golden Globe-winning Bobby, and Nell (Golden Globe Nomination). For The Black Dahlia, Isham was awarded “Best Score” by the International Film Music Critics Association. Most recently, Isham has scored the critically acclaimed film The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent for Lionsgate. Other recent projects include Bill and Ted Face The Music, The Godfather of Harlem, and Hulu’s limited series Little Fires Everywhere, for which he garnered his sixth Emmy nomination. 

In the course of his career, he has collaborated with top directors and artists including Shaka King, Lynn Shelton, Swizz Beatz, Jodie Foster, George Tillman, Robert Redford, Forest Whitaker, Tom Cruise, Brian De Palma, Chick Corea, Robert Altman, Sting, Will.i.am, Sidney Lumet, and Mick Jagger. In 2020, Isham made Cannes Film Festival history as the first film composer to perform a live in-studio concert of some of his most beloved scores, for the inaugural film music summit of the Cannes Film Market, the business counterpart of the prestigious festival. Mark Isham’s collective contributions to the film music community were recognized by his peers when he was awarded the prestigious Henry Mancini Career Achievement Award for musical excellence.

Nick Isham has developed his own signature sound pulling from a wide range of influences, from Van Morrison and Bill Withers to Ed Sheeran, Ryan Tedder, and Sam Hunt. Using his soulful voice and story-telling lyrics, Isham emotionally crafts his own, unique style of acoustic-pop music. For The Cleaning Lady, the Fox hit drama, Nick collaborated with his father and Grammy Award-winning composer and recording artist Mark Isham, and Filipino-American rapper/ hip hop artist Ruby Ibarra to write 5 original songs for the series, including “Lost Without You” and “Runaway”. Nick, Ruby, and Mark worked together to provide each song with a heart-wrenching yet driving pulse that stands alone from the series, while also moving the story forward in an evocative mood. Nick has written and/ or produced well over 1,000 songs in his writing career, for himself and others across many genres. He has 5 solo EPs and a number of TV/Film placements such as the end credit song called “Change” for the #1 Hollywood film Honest Thief.

 He performs as a solo, looping artist across the country from Los Angeles to Nashville to New York. With his beatboxing, guitar playing, and background harmonies, he builds tracks live with his looper, creating “stand in your seats” crowd singing, exciting and engaging shows.  

Ruby Ibarra is a rapper and spoken word artist from the Bay Area, CA. She released her debut album, CIRCA91 at the end of 2017 and has since toured across the United States at universities, empowerment conferences, music venues, and spaces such as the National Mall in DC, The Getty Center, and the De Young Museum. Ruby has been featured by notable publications including NPR, Huffington Post, South China Morning Post, Buzzfeed, XXL Magazine, and was featured in a Grammys/MasterCard commercial and campaign with R&B singer SZA. Ruby’s music is available on all digital platforms and can be heard in several museum exhibits, films, and television features.
