Ryan & Courtney Lofty make music for the coolest projects on the planet, from the full-dome NASA planetarium film Forward! to the Moon to the box-office dominating Fast & Furious franchise. 

The Aussie/American duo started out in unscripted television, working with reality tv powerhouse Bunim/Murray Productions on more than a thousand placements for shows like MTV The Challenge, The Real World, and Keeping Up with the Kardashians, before moving into game shows and co-scoring the reboot of the UK legacy smash The Crystal Maze.

From there they made their name in the competitive world of custom songwriting and scoring for animation. They are frequent collaborators with DreamWorks Animation, writing original songs to promote the top 10 Netflix kid’s show Gabby’s Dollhouse, co-scoring YA series Cleopatra in Space, and writing more than 70 songs for Doug Unplugs on AppleTV+. In the advertising realm, they wrote music for the 2022 AT&T March Madness campaign, trailers & level music for the global smash TETRIS, and many, many more. The duo is currently working on an upcoming DreamWorks/Netflix series, an unannounced Apple TV+ show and freelancing on the iconic Baby Shark series for Nickelodeon and Pinkfong.

Get excited. Let’s make some world-changing music together.
