Brian Jones, Music Supervisor

A native of South Dakota and Wyoming, Jones began his career as a songwriter and recording artist, touring the United States with his indie rock band. In New York, he joined the William Morris Agency handling touring for some of the world’s biggest artists. After WMA, Jones joined BANG as a composer and producer, quickly rising to partner while working closely with founder, Lyle Greenfield, to bring Bang further into the worlds of film, television and emerging media. His composing and production credits range from spot work for Guinness, Nike, McDonald’s, Ford, Victoria’s Secret and Mini Cooper, etc. to television work for MTV, ESPN, Bravo, NBC and as music supervisor for the CBS hit series, Blue Bloods. In tandem with ongoing spot work, Brian is currently supervising Lionsgate feature film, The Stare, starring James Franco and Winona Ryder, the Web series Undergrads for Rabbit Bandini Productions and composing original music for an upcoming series on NatGeo. In addition to his work for BANG, Brian has lectured at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development and served as a speaker and panelist for many music and entertainment industry conferences.
