“The rolls in Hollywood are filled with fully competent composers. Then there are artists like Bryan E. Miller who rise above the norm to display their art and genius as a character in the film. His music stirs the soul, brings life and majesty to the visual moment. His star has begun its ascension.”
Gerald R. Molen, Academy Award Winning Producer
“Music is an essential ingredient in all of my films. Bryan’s score has catapulted my film, enhancing and complimenting performances, editing and the cinematography. Rarely can a composer surprise you while staying true to the film’s vision. Bryan does both.”
Nathan Frankowski, Film Director
“Tech values are polished across the board, with composer Bryan E. Miller earning special credit for his genuinely stirring opening theme.”
Joe Leydon, Variety
“Our movie needed 1920’s jazz, live orchestra, and traditional Native American instrumentation — Bryan nailed it perfectly and made our movie the best possible!”
Paul Sirmons, Producer for TE ATA
“As a director, it is an incredible experience to see good scenes become real pieces of art through the addition of music…I think with America a profound challenge was put forward to composer Bryan Miller, and thankfully he not only met the challenge, he exceeded what I thought was possible.”
John Sullivan, Director (2016, America)
“Bryan has created a lot of epic and ambitious scores, many times under the gun and with little time. But he always produces beautiful results. He’s that unique combination of a true musician who is also technically precise and stays focused on the client’s needs.”
Writer / Director Cory Edwards (“Hoodwinked”)
“I was so impressed by Bryan’s diverse musical pallete on America…Imagine a World Without Her. The music was stirring and evocative. Having the honor of working with most of the great film composers living today, I have to say, Bryan’s music is comparative to many of these composers.”

Randy Argue, Feature Film Director (Feeding Obesity, Shoot or Be Shot)

Bryan E. Miller is a creative film composer whose goal is to help maximize the emotional impact of visual media by creating powerful, evocative film scores.
Bryan studied at the Grove School of Music, and UCLA Extensions Film scoring program. Early in his career Bryan honed his craft by assisting composer Mark Waters on more than 50 episodes for Disney and orchestrated and conducted for composer Mychael Danna who has since won an Academy Award.
Bryan then founded Sensory Overload Music, where he has composed and produced music for hundreds of projects and has created over 80 albums of music he licenses to movies, television, commercials, documentaries, and DVD features. His clients include Walt Disney, 20th Century Fox, Lionsgate, NBC Universal, CBS, ABC, A&E and The Style Network.
You’ve probably heard his compositions in American Idol, Dancing with the Stars, Boston Legal, The Big Bang Theory, Next Top Model, The Shield, General Hospital, Southland, and Access Hollywood, or listened to his signature music for the Comcast Logo. His music has also been featured in Superbowl commercials, Tony Scott’s Dodge Ram campaign and numerous TV spots for Nike, Microsoft, Taco Bell, AOL, Wells Fargo, Campbell’s, Dodge, Honda, Yamaha, John Deere, Lexus and Ford.
It was based on his versatility in multiple musical genres and his passion for making a difference beyond just art that Bryan was chosen to compose the score for the new feature film by New York Times best-selling author-turned-filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza – America: Imagine the World without Her. This is the much-anticipated follow-up to D’Souza’s surprise hit, 2016: Obama’s America becoming the second highest grossing political documentary in history.
Produced by Academy Award-winner Gerald Molen (Schindler’s List, Jurassic Park) and scheduled for wide release on July 4 weekend. The story spans continents, centuries, and musical styles—from orchestral, Americana, Mexican, Irish, Native American, Negro spirituals, electronica, to protest rock—which gave Miller a chance to showcase the depth and range of his musical expertise.
Bryan has signed with Milan Records, which will release the America soundtrack album in July 2014.
America is actually Miller’s third feature documentary this year. Though primarily a composer of dramatic and narrative films, Miller loves the documentary genre, and frequently takes time to compose music for charities and humanitarian organizations like St. Jude Children’s Hospital, World Vision, Best Friends Animal Rescue, and The Museum of Tolerance. Bryan’s view: “It’s a wonderful feeling when you can be part of a passionate team that wants to bring positive change to the world.”
Bryan E. Miller is a rising star in Hollywood who is refreshingly un-Hollywood. Originally from Albuquerque, NM, Bryan now lives in Los Angeles with his wife and 3 children. Bryan is equal parts pragmatist and idealist. He gets the job done in an efficient and ego-free way, all the while striving to create music that “stirs the soul” and “connects us to something bigger than ourselves.”
