ABOUT JARED DEPASQUALE

Jared is a storyteller.  Music is his language.

For over twenty five years Jared has composed the musical scores for some of Western culture’s most celebrated stories and iconic characters.

The recipient of numerous awards and critical acclaim, his work is widely recognized for its ability to musically capture complex characters amidst stories that are rich in texture and meaning.

Jared has contributed music to over a thousand different projects including scores to The Legends of Robin Hood (Gwilym Lee of Bohemian Rhapsody), The Secret Garden (Dame Joan Plowright of Driving Miss Daisy),  Little Women (Gemma Jones from the Harry Potter series), Les Miserables (Brian Blessed of Star Wars Episode 1), The Trials of Saint Patrick (John Rhys-Davies of Lord of the Rings), Ode to Saint Cecilia (Hayley Atwell of The Avengers series), and Brother Francis (Owen Teale of Game of Thrones).

Early in his career, Jared apprenticed under Emmy and ASCAP Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca. With LoDuca, Jared learned the business of composing for A-list projects including the globally syndicated television shows Xena: The Warrior Princess and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.  Immediately following his apprenticeship, Jared was recognized by Music from the Movies as one of the three most promising and interesting talents among film composers today.

Jared is more than a composer – he’s an artist in every sense of the word. His score tells an amazingly vivid story, but never gets in the way of the actor’s performances. Just when you think, “Surely, he’s used up his bag of tricks”, he opens another bag. I marvel at Jared’s skill, his knowledge of how to turn an idea into a work of art, and his humility at the end of the process.Dave Arnold, Peabody Award Winning Executive Producer
I had the opportunity to work with Jared on a couple of his music projects. I have always been impressed with the quality of Jared’s work, not only his production and compositional skills but his incredible guitar work. The fact that he is a “cool dude” is icing on the cake.Michael Omartian, 3 Time Grammy Award Winner, 17 time Grammy nominee
I have worked with Jared on a number of projects spanning over 15 years. He has proven himself to be detailed, organized, visionary and creative. His talents as a composer, producer, conductor and guitar player are absolutely first rate. He is a real pro and I can say that I’ve been proud of each project we have done together. He also has the distinction of being the only client that I have turned down Bruce Springsteen to work with. True story!Terry Christian, Grammy nominated recording engineer
I’m not often left speechless, but the music Jared composed for The Trials of St. Patrick has left me unable to find adequate words to say how remarkable it all is. Astonishing.  Unsurpassed.  Words don’t do this score justice.Paul McCusker, Peabody Award Winning Writer and Director
Jared is a unique blend of musician who’s skills cross all boundaries, the crucial recipe of inspiration and technique are thoroughly united in his music and create an exceptionally vast and beautiful musical world.C.F. Kip Winger, Grammy Nominated composer of Conversations With Nijinsky, and founder of the rock band, Winger
One of the most gifted composers I have worked with. Jared is wonderful to collaborate with and always delivers exactly what I was hoping for and more.David DeCoteau, Director of over 100 Feature Films
It’s one thing when music cues are composed and delivered with almost lightening speed.  It’s even better when those same cues are just off the charts brilliant.  Jared’s score for our production of Tom Swift And His Motorcycle is nothing short of breathtaking – capturing the excitement of adventure, and at the same time, the simplicity of 1910 America.  To call this score a tour de force would be an understatement.Jerry Robbins, Producer at The Colonial Radio Theatre on the Air
