Leo Birenberg has catapulted to the forefront of TV and film music, one of the industry’s most sought-after composers. Currently, Leo’s music is featured in Dreamworks’ new Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny, YouTube’s mega-hit series, Cobra Kai, Hulu’s coming-of-age comedy PEN15, and Adult Swim’s Tigtone. Working across a variety of genres and platforms, he has scored Fox’s Son of Zorn, TruTV’s Adam Ruins Everything, Seeso’s Take My Wife, Comedy Central’s Big Time in Hollywood, FL, and the critically acclaimed documentaries In Search of Greatness and Red Army. He recently scored the indie smash-hit Plus One, which won the 2019 Tribeca Film Festival Audience Award.
Leo has also been a steady collaborator of composer Christophe Beck, working as a writer, arranger, and producer and has contributed additional music to a number of films, including Frozen, Edge of Tomorrow, Ant-Man, and The Peanuts Movie.
Kentucky-born and Chicago-raised, Leo spent his childhood making movies and playing music, eventually combining the two by studying composition at NYU and USC. Originally a woodwind player and vocalist, Leo’s musical background is diverse, with influences from classical, jazz, bluegrass, show tunes, rock, world and electronic music.
Leo currently resides in Los Angeles. When not composing, he enjoys working out, playing pennywhistle, and going on walks with his fearsome beagle, Napoleon.
