Long biography (with bold or italic text):


Gordy Haab is a Grammy-winning and BAFTA-nominated film, video game, and television composer. His most recent project is the Chinese blockbuster Fengshen - Creation of the Gods: Kingdom of Storms (Well Go USA), which garnered $400M in box office in its home territory prior to the film’s 2023 North American Release. Haab is also well known for his music for AAA and AAAA video game titles including Star Wars Jedi: Survivor, Star Wars: Squadrons, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, Microsoft’s Halo Wars 2, and Star Wars: Battlefront I and II, among others. In 2022, Haab was nominated for an International Film Music Critics award for his work on the feature film My Country, My Parents, and was bestowed the inaugural “Music City Maestro” Award by the Society of Composers and Lyricists for his ongoing support of the Nashville music and recording community. In October 2022, his music from Star Wars: Battlefront I and II was featured as part of DICE’s 30th-anniversary concert series and performed by the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm.

In 2020, for the second time in three years, Haab won ASCAP’s Composers Choice award for Video Game Composer of the Year. He also took home the inaugural Society of Composers and Lyricists Award for Best Interactive Score, and Music of the Year at the 18th annual Game Audio Network Guild Awards for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which he co-wrote with composer Stephen Barton. In 2018, Billboard proposed that he could be the “Heir Apparent to John Williams.”

For his work on Star Wars: Battlefront, Haab won Music of the Year, Best Interactive Score, and Best Instrumental Score at the 14th annual Game Audio Network Guild Awards and his work was nominated for a BAFTA for Excellence in Audio Achievement. Haab also scored Activision/AMC's The Walking Dead, based on the #1 hit TV series, and Microsoft's Kinect: Star Wars, which won Best Music at the Hollywood Music in Media Awards. He continues to compose the music for EA and Bioware’s Star Wars: The Old Republic, for which he was awarded Best Original Soundtrack and Best Instrumental Music at the 10th Annual Game Audio Network Guild (G.A.N.G.) Awards.

Haab’s music has received the highest praise from numerous industry publications and many of the world’s leading media outlets, including the Huffington Post, who said, “Star Wars: Battlefront is sounding better and better every day…this new Star Wars music will light your saber”. Hardcore Gamer said, ‘‘Star Wars: Battlefront features the best game score John Williams never wrote”. And the Los Angeles Times said, “Haab created ‘the B-side to John Williams’ score’”.

Haab is known for his unsurpassed understanding of the orchestra as well as his unique ability to blend contemporary and traditional sounds into one – oftentimes conceiving and creating brand new musical instruments to feature in his scores. He has recorded and conducted his music with orchestras from all around the world, including The London Symphony Orchestra, The San Francisco Symphony, The Nashville Symphony, and the Hollywood Studio Orchestra.

A few of Haab's other film, television, and video game credits include: Anchor Bay's Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon; MTV's The Truth Below; Dave Barry's Guide to Guys; Lionsgate's War; The Oprah Network’s The Judds; Roadside Attractions' Shrink; TLC's Little People Big World; ABC's Greek; NBC's Kath and Kim; VH-1's Scream Queens; Endeavor's At the Edge of the World’; LucasArts' Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings, and many others.

Haab is a graduate of the University of Southern California, where he received his master's in Scoring For Motion Pictures, Television, and Other Media. Prior to this, he received a bachelor's degree in Music Composition at Virginia Commonwealth University. While he learned from many composers in university and conservatory settings, Haab says that most of his music education comes simply from, “Playing in hundreds of rock bands and being an avid fan of Hitchcock, Kubrick, Lucas, and Spielberg films . . . "B" Horror Movies of the 70's and 80's . . . and all of their great scores.
