Christopher North is a composer for film, TV / original series, theater, dance and various ensembles. He's also a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumental musician, having performed at Carnegie Hall and on Grammy award-winning recordings.
Hailing from Texas, he's thriving in Brooklyn, having released 17 albums (with five more soundtracks out in 2017) and scored 40+ films, screening/distributed around the world. Many of these have won awards at film festivals, including Slamdance (where he is two for two), Hamptons, Soho, Big Apple, Houston, Newport Beach, Milan and Coney Island, as well as a special mention at DOC NYC.
These credits include: A New High (distributed by Orchard in 2017), Missing People (Best at Hamptons), Everything’s Jake (starring Ernie Hudson), Eavesdrop (featuring Grammy Nominated Eroica Trio), Bible Quiz (on Sundance Global, Best Documentary Slamdance 2013), L’Absinthe (thriller set in Paris/Manhattan) and Lucky Days (directed by/starring Angelica Page).

His latest feature films are Cut Shoot Kill (suspense/horror) and Two Trains Runnin’ (music/civil rights doc), — both very well reviewed — and the multi-award winning All In Time (romantic/comedy).
Cut Shoot Kill will be shown at this year’s Nacogdoches Film Festival, while Two Trains Runnin’, which was shown at last year’s Festival, was recently nominated for a Grammy.
