Jessica Rose Weiss is a composer based in Los Angeles, CA. She first fell in love with music studying ballet and theatre in New York City in her youth, and this passion eventually led her to Warner Brothers Studios in London. It was there that she was recruited by Hans Zimmer to apprentice at Remote Control Productions. After years working her way up the ladder as a music editor, she found a life-changing mentorship in film composition working side by side with Academy Award-winning composer Mychael Danna.
Jessica has created an impressive body of work across multiple music genres ranging from folk to electronic to orchestral. Last year, she scored Sony/Amazon’s Cinderella, directed by Kay Cannon and starring pop superstar Camila Cabello, which was the #1 streaming film Worldwide. For this achievement, she won her first BMI Award. Additional credits include the Netflix #1 hits Dog Gone Trouble and Afterlife of the Party, Everything I Ever Wanted to Tell My Daughter About Men (featuring a collaboration with pop sensation Sia), the Dolly Parton- produced Women’s Rights documentary Still Working 9 to 5, and Amazon’s dramedy Don’t Make Me Go starring John Cho and directed by Hannah Marks.
She recently completed the score for The Independent, a political thriller starring John Cena and Brian Cox, directed by Amy Rice. She also just wrapped up the music for Nicol Paone’s thriller The Kill Room, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Uma Thurman.
Jessica is an alumni of the Universal/Dreamworks Composers Initiative and a proud member of the Alliance for Women Film Composers. In addition to her film work, her music has been performed on stages around the world, from The Globe Theater in London to The Joffrey Ballet in Chicago to The Wiltern Theater in LA.
