Gregory Russell Kuehn is an American composer, songwriter, musician and producer.
Kuehn's career began in Orange County's early punk scene, when he left his classical piano studies at California State University, Long Beach to join horror punk icons T.S.O.L. Together they made the album Beneath the Shadows, still a highly regarded and influential work.
Following his tenure in T.S.O.L. , he spent several years as a recording and touring musician working with artists including Bob Dylan, The Church, Duane Peters, Megan Mullally, Berlin and Ian Astbury of The Cult. Most recently, Kuehn has been performing with LA punk legends X, filling in for the late Ray Manzarek of The Doors.
Kuehn got his start in film working on the score for cult classic Repo Man, on which he arranged music and played keyboards. Since then, Kuehn has scored numerous films, including Confessions of a Superhero and Meet the Hitlers, both directed by Matt Ogens and produced by film maker Morgan Spurlock, A Small Section of the World, directed by Lesley Chilcott, and The Achievers, The Story of The Lebowski Fans. One of his songs was featured in the documentary The Other F Word, directed by Andrea Nivens. He worked with producer Peter Jackson scoring the trailer for the Amy Berg directed doc, West of Memphis, and has completed the score for Go North a new feature film directed by Matt Ogens, and starring Jacob Lofland, Sophie Kennedy Clark and Patrick Schwarzenegger. Kuehn composed the music for Shooting An Elephant, a narrative short film featured in the 2016 Tribeca film festival, directed by JP Rothie and written by Alec Sokolow. Code Blue, a short film Kuehn scored based on the T.S.O.L. song and the Jack Grisham short story, was featured in the 2016 Cannes Film Festival Court Metrage (Short Film Corner).
Kuehn has composed the music for CNN Heroes, Stand Up 2 Cancer, Give it up For Greg Giraldo and The Daytime Emmys. Kuehn has scored hundreds of television commercials for clients including Ancestry, MINI, Hyundai, Honda, Blue Shield, Nike, Adidas, DirecTV, Miller, Gatorade and Petco among many others.
