John Graney is a composer living and working in Los Angeles. After graduating Berklee College of Music in 2003 he racked up a laundry list of touring gigs for ten years (Arctic Monkeys, The Wallflowers, She Wants Revenge, Lenka, Honey Honey, The Californian) before finally settling down back in LA to write, record, and sing for commercials and TV placements (Levi’s, McDonald’s, Target, Bud Light, Pizza Hut, True Blood, Aint Them Bodies Saints) If you’ve heard an Auto Zone commercial in the last ten years, you have heard his voice. Yes, you are reading a bio for the “get in the zone” guy. His true love has always been composing for film and television, and since graduating from AFI with a masters in film in 2020 that’s all he has been doing. He loves wringing big emotions and pulling stories out of alternative musical ensembles. He is proud to have his first feature score for the film, “Junction”, directed by Bryan Greenberg (One Tree Hill, How to Make it in America, Prime) screen at Cannes 2023. He followed that up with a fun, massive, Bernard Hermann-esque score for Slamdance award winning project “Fishmonger” by exciting AFI up-and-comer, Neil Ferron. He is currently writing music and lyrics for an amazing animated musical about the life and love story of Mileva Meric, uncelebrated genius and first wife of Albert Einstein, with script by the incredible Monica Beletsky (Manhunt, Fargo, The Leftovers)
