About Christopher Young

One of the foremost talents in film music today, Christopher Young has scored an impressive number of features in virtually every genre, all with strikingly original music. Upon moving to Los Angeles after college, Young studied with composer David Raksin at UCLA Film School. Early successes such as Hellraiser, The Fly 2, A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy’s Revenge helped establish Chris as one of the most gifted up and coming composers who had their own unique musical voice. In Young’s long lasting career, he’s worked with notable directors such as Sam Raimi (Spider-man 3, Drag Me To Hell), Lasse Hallstrom (Golden Globe nominated score - The Shipping News), Norman Jewison (The Hurricane).
