Composer • Arranger • Orchestrator
Music is an art but also a craft. It is the result of a careful combination of inspiration and process. Stories told with words are powerful. Stories told with music are unforgettable.
Born in Issaquah, Washington in 1990, Jeff Chambers grew up in eastern Washington and now composes and arranges music that is played and heard around the world. He studied composition with Dan Bukvich and Robert Dickow at the University of Idaho and has since made a full-time career in music composition. His music is frequently noted as fresh and exciting and in 2013, one of his arrangements was recognized by Rolling Stone Magazine as a "Mind-Blowing Cover".
In 2017, he began composing and orchestrating music with Jesse Sanchez for a new musical, “SUEÑOS: Our American Musical". The music of their new work debuted at The Green Room 42 in New York City on October 26, 2019 and headlined the New York Theater Barn's New Works Series on December 2, 2019. In August of 2018, Jeff served as a music assistant to a new musical called, "Once Upon a Rhyme” shortly before it was produced at New York University.
In 2016 he received the bronze medal in the Seattle Composers Alliance international call for scores with his string quartet, "Whitewater". In 2016 and 2019 he was the recipient of the "Best Score" award in the Seattle 48 Hour Horror Film Festival for his original scores, "Wild Roses" and "The Recursive Haunting of Abel Street". His scores are frequently heard in film festivals around the world including one of his more recent projects, "Crowbar" which has screened at dozens of film festivals internationally and has received numerous awards and accolades.
