Two-time Emmy Award winning composer (12-time Emmy nominated) Joseph LoDuca has enjoyed a prolific career in writing for film and television. He began with director Sam Raimi’s Evil Dead Trilogy, and followed up in the action/fantasy genre with Xena: Warrior Princess (Emmy winner), Legend of the Seeker (Emmy winner), and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys.
Other television highlights include the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight), and Turner Network Television’s Leverage (for Dean Devlin), TNT’s The Librarians, Ash v. Evil Dead for Starz, and Disjointed, a Netflix sitcom starring Kathy Bates (David Javerbaum, Chuck Lorre).
In film, more recent scores include thrillers Bad Samaritan (Dean Devlin) and Cult of Chucky (Don Mancini); the romantic comedies Say My Name (Jay Stern) and Here:After (Harry Greenberger).
Current TV projects include the USA/SciFi series Chucky, the return of Leverage for Amazon/IMDb TV, and Evil Dead: The Game (Saber: Interactive), his first foray into video games.
Internationally, his films include Brotherhood of the Wolf (César nominee for Best Score) and Saint Ange. LoDuca also scored Patagonia (directed by Marc Evans), which was selected as the 2012 British entry for the Foreign Language Oscar, and included song collaborations with pop artist Duffy and operatic baritone Bryn Terfel. His body of work also features operettas, musicals and theme songs, which have earned him five of his twelve Emmy nominations.
On his life as a film composer Joseph muses, “I love my role in creating a unique, emotional world for a story, and in having the chance to evoke feelings in people they may not have expected.”
