Life and career

Jeff Danna Jeff Danna Resident Evil Apocalypse 2004

Danna was born in Burlington, Ontario, a brother of composer Mychael Danna. A reluctant piano student at age eight, he found solace in the guitar at age eleven and began playing professionally at fifteen until a hand injury at age 21 curtailed his performance career.

He subsequently began composing for films and moved to Los Angeles to continue working. Jeff has created scores for a long and varied list of films. His credits include such diverse projects as the hit film adaptations of the video game/action franchises Resident Evil: Apocalypse and Silent Hill, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D; the Ryan Gosling-Anthony Hopkins legal drama Fracture; The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Tideland, which were both directed by Terry Gilliam; Lakeview Terrace, directed by Neil Labute; a series of films for director Brett Morgen, including The Kid Stays in the Picture and Chicago 10; Closing the Ring, for director Richard Attenborough; and the cult classic The Boondock Saints, among others.

Additionally, his collaborative Orchestral Celtic albums with brother and composer Mychael Danna have enjoyed worldwide success, and placed on the Top Ten Billboard chart in the United States.

Recently, Jeff scored Brett Morgen’s Kurt Cobain documentary Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck, which premiered at Sundance and was released on HBO in May 2015. He also scored Tim Blake Nelson's Anesthesia, starring Kristen Stewart and Glenn Close.

Danna is scoring the FX drama Tyrant along with Mychael Danna, which had its season 2 premiere on June 16, 2015. Jeff received two Emmy nominations this year, nominated in the categories of Outstanding Music Composition For A Series (Original Dramatic Score) and Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for Tyrant. Jeff was nominated once before for Outstanding Original Main Title Theme Music for Camelot.
