BIO

Twin brothers Jason & Nolan Livesay grew up in Southern California and both began studying the violin at age 8.  Their music training continued into junior high and high school with an emphasis on composing and arranging.  They both attended Azusa Pacific University and UCLA, where they studied violin, composition, conducting, orchestration, and film scoring.  Their professional careers began with assisting composer Lee Sanders on THE AMAZING RACE for CBS, opening the door for scoring numerous independent films and movie trailers for every major studio in Hollywood.


Jason & Nolan have continued their careers working together as composers, orchestrators, and conductors for film, television, and musical theatre, including film scores by Alan Silvestri, John Ottman, John Paesano, John Bisharat, J.A.C. Redford, Nathan Lanier, and concert orchestrations for Broadway composers Jason Robert Brown & Georgia Stitt, and Broadway stars Ashley Brown, Lea Salonga, Sierra Boggess, and Ramin Karimloo.  The twins both held conducting positions with the Golden State Pops Orchestra, a professional orchestra in Los Angeles dedicated almost entirely to film music. Their works or orchestrations have been performed or recorded by the Hollywood Studio Symphony, Cincinnati Pops Orchestra, Golden State Pops Orchestra, the Sonus Quartet, the APU Symphony Orchestra, the Lake Avenue Chamber Orchestra, the Michael Skidgel Singers, and orchestras in London, Prague, Russia, Tokyo, and Slovakia.  Winning multiple awards for their compositions in film and television music (Telly Awards, LA Movie Awards, JPF Music Awards, APU Academic Hall of Honor), their "tag-team" workflow as composers, orchestrators, and conductors brings a unique efficiency to their projects and recording sessions.
