Jason Lazarus is a Los Angeles based composer, known amongst his collaborators for masterfully balancing the extremes of epic scale, gravitas and hard-hitting aggression, with intimate tenderness and sparse subtly. His work can be heard on dozens of films and close to a hundred episodes of television.
Shortly after receiving a degree in music composition from UCLA’s Herb Alpert School of Music, Jason was enlisted by composer Joseph Trapanese (Tron: Legacy, Oblivion, The Greatest Showman) and has since collaborated both as an additional writer and co-composer on numerous films, television shows and video games. Notable titles include Straight Outta Compton, Netflix’s The Witcher and Shadow and Bone series, and the King Kong anime series Skull Island, which the two co-composed.
Aside from his productive collaborations with Trapanese, Jason has scored entries into the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teen Titans, and Are You Afraid of the Dark? franchises as well as several independent features.
In addition to scoring work, Jason’s talents have been utilized in live and studio orchestral arrangements for Grammy Award-winning artists Kendrick Lamar and Kelly Clarkson, as well as Grammy-nominated artists M83 and Moby, and multi-platinum DJ and producer Marshmello.
Jason holds both US and Canadian citizenship.
