Kays Al-Atrakchi - Music Composer/Producer
During his extensive career, music composer Kays Al-Atrakchi has received an impressive amount of press, industry accolades and awards.
After graduating Cum Laude with a Film Scoring degree from Boston’s prestigious Berklee College of Music, Kays rapidly became one of the key creative forces in the emerging Florida film and music scene of the late-90’s.
Along with a prolific songwriting partnership with Rob Thomas (Matchbox Twenty, Santana), Kays rapidly connected with visionary filmmaker Dan Myrick (Blair Witch Project) with whom he developed a lasting creative relationship.
Now based in Los Angeles, Kays' unique creative approach has resulted in a number of critically acclaimed film scores for such studios as Warner Bros., Universal, Sony Pictures, Lions Gate; networks like ABC, NBC, Disney Channel, SyFy, Lifetime, MTV, Showtime and Discovery Channel and many advertising agencies.
Kays' uncompromising work ethic and dedication coupled with an innate curiosity for technology continues to yield wildly innovative, original music.
