Paul Spaeth

From The United States

Beginning piano lessons at age 5 and composing shortly thereafter, Paul Spaeth is currently 21 years old and is attending the University of Southern California to study film scoring with world-renowned professors – active and highly respected members of the composition and film scoring industries. One of only four students accepted worldwide in the highly selective program, it is no doubt this young composer/pianist is destined for success.

His first year in LA brought him two credits in large-budget films as music composer and pianist, one by the youngest film director to ever be on the Academy board. With a CD of piano music written merely at the ages of 14-16, Paul Spaeth has sold thousands of copies entirely on a grass-roots effort through his company SpaethMusic, Inc. and has performed solo for an arena of 9,000+ people. Recently, he was the youngest recipient of a 2003 LA Chapter Scholarship award from the Recording Academy (The Grammy Awards). Other interesting facts include his better-than-Top-Ten position on's Overall and Indie download charts continuously for countless weeks (the only artist on the Overall charts without a record deal), well over one million downloads on, as well as being recognized with one of the Top 20 songs of 1999 and the Top Downloaded Artist in LA. With an sales rank peaking 200, Paul Spaeth has sold better than similar artists such as Jim Brickman and even platinum Enya albums. He performed at the twice-postponed 2001 Emmy awards in Los Angeles with the USC choir and Barbra Streisand. As a high school student, Paul had the honor of arranging the state anthem “On Wisconsin” for the 2001 Presidential Inaugural Parade in Washington D.C. Paul also won the Pepsi-Summerfest Talent Search at age 15 (the youngest competing) by performing solo piano against rock and pop groups. He is currently working on his goals of songwriting and film scoring success, while also performing and working on future album releases. His musical taste and sound varies, easily allowing him to score several genres of film and write for, or perform in, both the popular and classical worlds of music.
