A Los Angeles native, Jeremy Tisser is one of today’s young up and coming film composers. His unique sound incorporates the world of big band and orchestra, while assimilating his rock & roll and metal backgrounds. Jeremy’s recent accomplishments include a nomination for “Best Mobile Game Score” at the 2013 Hollywood Music in Media Awards for his big band score to the iPhone game, ZombieSC.
Jeremy began his musical career at the age of 4, when he learned to play the piano. On his 9th birthday, Jeremy received a snare drum, a pair of sticks, and his first drum lesson. Since that day, his loyalty has remained with the drum kit. He joined his first band at the age of 14, which debuted at the old Knitting Factory in Hollywood, and recorded his first album less than one year later. Since then, Jeremy has worked with legendary Grammy-Winning engineers as Bruce Botnick (The Doors, Jerry Goldsmith) Bobby Fernandez (Ray Charles, Bruce Broughton), John Kurlander (The Beatles, Howard Shore), and Dennis Sands (Willie Nelson, Bill Conti, Ella Fitzgerald, Count Basie). Over the years, Jeremy has played all over Southern California with a dozen local bands, and toured the country as a drum tech for various metal bands, including The Human Abstract. He has recorded multiple albums with each band he’s played in at studios such as The Bridge, East West, Warner Bros, House of Blues Productions and more. Although he has since moved on to recording orchestras and big bands performing his music for films and video games, Jeremy continues to practice, teach, and record. He is currently writing his debut solo album, to be released in 2015.
