Jeff Cardoni’s talents range from intimate independent fare to full orchestral majesty. With over 55 feature film scores and several network series to his credit, one can hear his work worldwide every day. His unique ability to cross genres has made him a powerful player in the film composing industry. Jeff originally studied classical piano while playing percussion in the school orchestra. But it would be rock and roll that would lead him to Los Angeles in 1997. After a brief stint as lead guitarist for the Warner Bros. band Alien Crime Syndicate, Jeff left to pursue film scoring full-time. He worked under several Hollywood composers including John Murphy (Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, 28 Days Later) while studying conducting and orchestration at UCLA. He was voted ASCAP 2019 TV Composer of The Year and nominated again in 2020 alongside Lorne Balfe, Bear McCreary, and Mark Snow.
His body of work ranges from studio features such as Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates, Step Up: All In, and Just Friends, to independent films such as The Confirmation, and the Sundance darling The Vicious Kind. His television scores include the STARZ wrestling drama Heels, the top-rated CBS comedy series Ghosts, the Mike Judge hit Silicon Valley for HBO, CBS drama Training Day with the late Bill Paxton, the highest-rated comedy of the year Young Sheldon for Chuck Lorre, the worldwide Jerry Bruckheimer produced hit CSI: Miami, and the upcoming HBO limited series White House Plumbers, starring Woody Harrelson and Justin Theroux, Lena Headey, and directed by David Mandel (Veep). Jeff is also an active songwriter, penning the theme songs to STARZ’s Heels (co-written with Ben Bridwell of Band of Horses), FX’s The League, MTV’s Pimp My Ride, and Fox’s MadTV, with songs appearing in countless films, including “Hard Knock Life” with Mike Myers in Austin Powers, “Long Road Home” featuring Gene Simmons of Kiss for CSI, and collaborating with Minnie Driver for an updated version of the classic “I’ve Got a Golden Ticket” with a live orchestra recorded at the Fox Newman stage. Jeff also produced several songs with Jon Lajoie for the soundtrack to The League and a Lexus Super Bowl spot with legendary alternative rock group The Pixies. He recently produced a reimagined version of the Mariah Carey classic track “Fantasy” for the Ryan Reynolds starring, Shawn Levy directed Fox feature Freeguy, featuring vocals by actress Jodie Komar (Killing Eve).
Other scores include the Golden Globe winning Netflix series The Kominsky Method, the 2022 ASCAP Documentary Score of the Year for Tony Hawk: Until The Wheels Fall Off, the #1 Netflix Comedy feature Me Time, directed by John Hamburg (I Love You Man). Upcoming projects include the Netflix comedy feature Players, docuseries Smartless: On The Road directed by Sam Jones for MAX, sci-fi drama Fallen directed by Matt Hastings (The Handmaid’s Tale) and the upcoming Amazon drama feature Sitting In Bars With Cake, directed by Trish Sie (Pitch Perfect 3, Step Up: All In).
