Mark Himley is a producer and composer whose music has been featured in many forms of media. Mark creates emotive and powerful music that supports the emotion and drama of any given platform.

Mark first realized the power of music in film as a young child when his mother pushed the mute button while watching a horror movie, and he instantly became fascinated with the role music plays. He got his first guitar at age eleven, and it became the instrument where he would first discover his musical voice.

Mark graduated from McNally Smith College of Music, earning his Bachelor of Music in Instrumental Composition. He studied under great educators such as: Sean McMahon (Spider-Man 3, The Exorcism of Emily Rose,  Ghost Rider, The Grudge 1-3, Drag Me to Hell, Priest) Adi Yeshaya (Arranger for: Prince, Whitney Houston, NBC's 'The Voice', Aretha Franklin, Burt Bacharach) Ken Chastain (Chief Engineer/Composer- Pixel Farm) and many more.

In May of 2017, Mark's work on the animated short film Earth Angel was nominated for "Best Original Score" at the Los Angeles Film Awards. 

Working with Mark was a privilege. In addition to his exceptional musical talents, Mark has a work ethic that sets him apart. From the beginning of our collaboration, Mark worked hard to understand my goals as a director and the needs of our story. He went above and beyond making sure he delivered exactly what the film needed. He was open to all feedback and flexible when things changed. But above all, he’s just a great guy to work with! I look forward to collaborating with him again in the future.
