Justin Samaha writes and produces music for documentaries, feature films, industrials, machinima, art installations, freestyle dressage, live dressage music performance, and more.
His work is most often heard on PBS' FRONTLINE series, for which he has scored Emmy and Peabody award-winning films on Syria, the crisis in public schools, the Haiti earthquake, the BP oil spill, assisted suicide, and others.
Samaha is a magna cum laude graduate of the Berklee College of Music, and of Concord Academy. He lives in Manhattan with his wife (a stroke neurologist at New York–Presbyterian Hospital), their three children, and two dogs.
He is rumored to be one of the two mysterious members of the heavy metal band SEBEKAR, but Samaha neither confirms nor denies this.
