Daniel Scott is an award winning Quebec composer, orchestrator and conductor for film and television. Born and raised in Montreal, his father was a composer and his mother a classically trained pianist. Both were professional studio singers whose love of music instilled in him a life-long passion for it. From the age of five through his early teens, he often spent his time in the recording studio working as a singer and actor for radio and television commercials.
Apart from his formal training in guitar and voice, his early years were cradled in musical diversity as he absorbed the sounds of jazz, classical, folk and progressive rock music, which became the building blocks of his musical language.
Whether scoring with the complex colors of a full orchestra, the contemporary sounds of electronic instruments or the intimate simplicity of a human voice, Daniel's approach to film scoring is always deeply connected to emotion and storytelling, for within his passion for music lies a deep love for compelling, well crafted stories.
With extensive experience in live action as well as animation, he has collaborated over the past twenty years on a multitude of films, television series, documentaries and video games.
Apart from his success as a composer, he has often been called upon as the choral director for the French adaptation of songs for Warner Brothers and Walt Disney films.
Daniel Scott is a five-time recipient of SOCAN’s (Society of Composers, Authors and Music Publishers of Canada) National/International Award for the “most performed Quebec composer for film and television”. He has also been nominated six times for the Gémeaux and Gemini Canadian television awards.
