Bryce Jacobs is a unique and eclectic composer who writes and performs his own brand of hybrid soundtrack music.
After completing a Bachelor of Music in Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, Bryce returned 18 months later to complete a Masters in Composition. It was during this time of study that Bryce realized that his desire and infatuation with film music was to be his musical focus from this point on.
Bryce's dedication to film music led to the development of a guitar of his own design – a guitar that was based on the range and capabilities of a piano. Through the facilitation of transcribing existing piano music faithfully onto this guitar, the instrument became a new and exciting platform to write and perform any style of music, which encouraged more of the hybrid-orientated music Bryce is continually developing.
As a session and touring musician, Bryce has worked for Australian artists such as Josh Pyke and Genevieve Maynard, as well as for international artists like Sophie B. Hawkins. He soon became more embedded in film scoring, which inspired him to move to Los Angeles and pursue his career as a film composer. He was involved with the orchestration, copying, recording, and performing of such films as "Happy Feet", "Jumper", "Gabriel", "Australia" and "P.S. I Love You".
With his move to L.A., Bryce also quickly attained a position at Hans Zimmer's Remote Control Productions where he has been a part of the writing and production of many hit films, video games and television shows, as well as working closely with Grammy and Emmy Nominated composer Ramin Djawadi. Such projects have included Warner Brothers' "Clash of the Titans", MGM/UA's "Red Dawn", EA's "Medal of Honor" and "Need for Speed - Shift 2", Activision's "Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3", ABC's "FlashForward" and 20th Century Fox's "Prison Break" and "Breakout Kings". In addition to this, Bryce has also performed on the scores for "Rango", "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides", "Puss in Boots”, ”Savages" and “Fifty Shades of Grey”, to name a few.
In early 2012, Bryce completed a unique Song/Score for the feature film "Bad Karma" starring Ray Liotta and Dominic Purcell. Bryce also worked closely with Hans as additional composer and featured guitarist on the Ron Howard film, "Rush", which was released to wide critical acclaim in 2013.
In 2015, Bryce collaborated with KT Tunstall on the indie film “Carried”. Shortly after this, he wrote the dark soul/funk infused score for the Sundance featured documentary “Drunk, Stoned, Brilliant, Dead: The Story of The National Lampoon”. The next year, Bryce completed a pilot for ABC Studios (U.S) that was executively produced by Reese Witherspoon (starring Ana Paquin, Blair Underwood and Penelope Ann Miller). In 2017, Bryce composed episodes of SyFy's "12 Monkeys" Season 3, and wrote and produced the score and feature song ("Best Man") to the hilarious indie comedy "Random Tropical Paradise". In 2018, Bryce composed the score for Icon Pictures’ “Yowie” series as well as composing music for Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment’s “Skyscraper” (starring Dwayne Johnson). Most recently, he composed music for Walt Disney Pictures’ “Christopher Robin”, which also featured his guitar and vocal performances.
