Adam Gubman is a multimedia composer with a songsmith’s heart. He’s written melody-packed scores for feature films, theme park attractions, and more than 700 video games. He produced the smash anthem “This Is Me” from The Greatest Showman by Benj Pasek and Justin Paul, which won a Golden Globe and was nominated for an Oscar and a Grammy. As a song producer, he’s lent his tune savviness to the films and television shows Baywatch, John Shaft, Ride Along, Galavant, The Smurfs, and Sausage Party, collaborating with composers such as Alan Menken, John Debney, and Christopher Lennertz.
In the gaming world, where he got his start on 2004’s Pirates of the Burning Sea, he’s run the gamut of genres with original score—and often original songs—for some of the biggest mobile games and publishing giants like Blizzard, Ubisoft, Sony Online Interactive, Electronic Arts, and Disney Online Interactive. He’s also created music and songs for the magic-makers at Disney Imagineering for Disneyland, Disney World, and the Tokyo Disney properties.
Gubman grew up in Orange County, where he started composing, playing piano, and tinkering with computers at the age of 7. He produced his first record at 16, and after high school he joined producer CJ Vanston’s team, working on projects for artists such as Michael Bolton, Carole King, and Spinal Tap.
“I love the challenge of writing in varied styles, in mashing up ridiculous things that have never been squished together in the same song, and experimenting with genre-specific production boundaries,” he says, helping producers and directors “Imagine the sound of their world”.
