A Creative Director , a touring musician and a composer walk into a bar...

...and after a few rounds of trading war stories, Mean Machine was born. We envisioned a better way for creative storytellers and musicians to work together - by bringing them together - in one company.

Mean Machine connects film makers and storytellers to LA’s top musical talent with the goal of creating original, one-of-a-kind, never-stock compositions for creative projects.

Our work is made in collaboration with a network of professional musicians and producers under the supervision of an award- winning Creative Director/Art Director, a world-class touring musician, and a classically-trained composer.
