Scott Keever is a composer who, over the last twenty years, has had experience in a wide variety of styles, from orchestral to jazz to Americana to electronic.

Since 2002, under Human Soundtrack Productions, Scott has composed music for radio, theatre, podcasts, short films and feature length documentaries. He has been a music director/arranger for Brave New Workshop (comedy improv), Idiot Box (multi-media sketch comedy) and Blue Umbrella Productions (musical theatre).

In 2012, as a member of Balkan/Eastern European ensemble Orkestar Bez Ime (OBI), Scott won the Emerging Composers Award from the American Composers Forum. The ACF award inspired the OBI album “Unveiled – Live At The Celtic Junction” (2014), for which Scott contributed two pieces. He has produced a full-length solo album “Salieri’s Revenge” (2010) featuring his electro-acoustic compositions, as well as an album featuring his solo guitar work: "Solo Guitar - Vol. 1" (2018).
