Christopher Drake

Christopher Drake

Composer


Christopher Drake‘s music empowers a diverse array of projects, transcending medium and genre. Drake has collaborated many times with beloved cult filmmaker Kevin Smith, and will head to Sundance 2016 for the premiere of their most recent collaboration, “Yoga Hosers,” starring Johnny Depp and Kevin Smith, as well as their daughters Lily-Rose Melody Depp and Harley Quinn Smith. This follows Christopher’s work on Smith’s genre-bending horror-comedy “Tusk,” which premiered at TIFF, featuring the same cast. 

Drake’s big break came when his music was discovered by Oscar- Nominated filmmaker Guillermo del Toro. Working with del Toro, Christopher scored the animated films “Hellboy: Sword of Storms” and “Hellboy: Blood and Iron,” featuring the voices of Ron Perlman and Selma Blair, as well as the video game “Hellboy: The Science of Evil,” and the Director’s Cut re-release of del Toro’s short film, “Geometria.”

Drake is a powerhouse in both the animation world as well as the video game world. Warner Bros. Animation entrusts Drake to bolster the action of some of their most successful superhero franchises. For the hugely successful DC Universe Animated Original Movies series produced by DC Animation legend Bruce Timm, some of Drake’s most recognized work can be heard in adaptations of Frank Miller’s seminal graphic novels “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns – Parts 1 & 2,” and “Batman: Year One.” He also scored “Batman: Gotham Knight,” “Wonder Woman,” “Superman/Batman: Public Enemies,” “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights,” “Under the Red Hood,” and many more. Drake’s best-selling video game credits include “Batman: Arkham Origins” and “Injustice: Gods Among Us.” 

Drake resides in Los Angeles.
