Alexis Marsh

Composer


Dyan

Three-time BMI award-winning composer, songwriter and music producer Alexis Marsh
is known for her work on six seasons of the TNT hit show, Animal Kingdom. In addition
to her scores, her songs have been featured in over 30 productions across television,
film, advertising campaigns, and online series.

In 2021 she composed the score to the final season of TNT’s drama, Animal Kingdom,
alongside Samuel Jones, her creative collaborator for all 6 seasons of the show. In 2020
she scored The Unknown Country, a feature film about a grieving young woman on an
unexpected roadtrip directed by Morrisa Maltz. The film features a string ensemble
recorded in Los Angeles and received its premiere at SXSW in 2022.

Marsh began composing as a jazz musician in Canada, studying music performance in
Toronto and Louisville, KY before moving to Los Angeles to attend the University of
Southern California’s Scoring For Motion Pictures and Television program. It was at
USC that she met Samuel Jones and began co-writing and producing scores for several
projects. Their work can be heard on feature films that have premiered at Sundance
(Equity, Lila & Eve), Tribeca (Preservation), and South by Southwest (We’ll Never Have
Paris, The Unknown Country), as well as in installations by Alex Israel (Alex Israel x
Snapchat, As It Lays), campaigns for Pinterest, Glossier, The U.S. National Park
Service, and shorts for Sesame Street.

In 2016, she released an album of her songs, Looking For Knives, as DYAN. Co-
produced with Jones, they worked with Dan Dorff Junior on drums and keyboards, forming a band, and releasing an EP in 2018 called Absence. Songs from Looking For
Knives went on to appear in Truth Be Told, South Side, Marvel’s Jessica Jones, Lucifer,
Better Things, Virgin River as well as Xavier Dolan’s Matthias & Maxime.

Additionally, she and Jones recorded an orchestra at AIR Studios Lyndhusrt in London
for their score to Netflix’s animated feature, NextGen. The score’s main theme was
taken from the chorus of Marsh’s song, Faking, which is also featured in the film.

Marsh was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in the Canadian prairies, and has been based in Cincinnati, Ohio since 2014.
