Two-time Emmy Award winning composer Joseph LoDuca is no stranger to large orchestral action, adventure, fantasy, and thriller music. His varied career features operettas, musicals and theme songs, which have earned him five of his twelve Emmy nominations.
Internationally, his films include Brotherhood of the Wolf (César nominee for Best Score) and Saint Ange. LoDuca also scored the film Patagonia (directed by Marc Evans), which was chosen as the 2012 British entry for the Foreign Language Oscar. The project included song collaborations with pop artist Duffy and operatic baritone Bryn Terfel.
Josephʼs extensive work for television is highlighted by Xena: Warrior Princess (Emmy winner), Legend of the Seeker (Emmy winner), and Hercules: The Legendary Journeys. LoDuca composed the music for TNTʼs Leverage (for Dean Devlin), director Sam Raimiʼs Evil Dead Trilogy, and the Starz Entertainment series Spartacus (produced by Raimi/Tapert/Donen and Steven DeKnight).
In 2017, his broadcast work included Season 4 of TNT’s The Librarians, Season 3 of Ash vs Evil Dead for Starz, and Disjointed, a Netflix sitcom (David Javerbaum, Chuck Lorre); two feature films - Bad Samaritan (Dean Devlin), Cult of Chucky (Don Mancini); and Pleasuredome, an 80’s-themed musical. Current projects include the indie rom-com Say My Name, Mr. Iglesias for Netflix, and an off-Broadway production, Before We’re Gone.
He sums it all up: “I am a storyteller and my language is music. The discoveries made when I work closely with a director - that's what continually surprises and inspires me.”
