A Composer with a Fantastic Passion.


John McKiever is a game composer and producer based in Charlotte, North Carolina. He specializes in science fiction, horror, and fantasy music for video games and film. He is also a veteran beat maker with 20 years experience. He creates music using vintage and modern synthesizers, classical instruments, advanced samplers and more. With beginnings as a classically trained pianist, he set off on his journey creating music at the age of 10.

His love for sci-fi altered his path into a world of analog synthesis and experimental sound design. Raised by an IBM engineer, pc games were his primary element of household entertainment. The two worlds collided in 2007 after landing a song on 2K Games’ NBA 2k7. It was then John discovered his true calling and focused on being a video game composer.
