Bear McCreary wins Emmy Award

Da Vinci's Demons theme wins best Main Theme

This fall McCrearys music can be heard on the new series Marvels Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. McCreary continues to write for the television show The Walking Dead. Recently he lent his talents to Syfy and Trion Worlds groundbreaking entertainment experience, Defiance, a combined launch of a MMO videogame.
