Paul Brill is an American multiple Emmy Award-nominated composer,[1] songwriter and producer based in Brooklyn, NY. He has scored dozens of feature films, television series and commercials, most notably including: Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work, The Devil Came on Horseback, The Trials of Darryl Hunt, Freakonomics, Full Battle Rattle, Page One: Inside the NY Times, Better This World, and No Woman, No Cry, among many others.[2] Brill recently scored the HBO film, "Burma Soldier," on which he collaborated with Rock legends U2 - composing a new string arrangement for an acoustic version of their classic song, "Walk On." He recently won the Best Music Award at the International Documentary Awards (IDA) for his score to "Better This World."[3] His recordings of original songwriting have been hailed as "Stunning," by Paste Magazine[4] and "A testament to the enduring potency of classical pop songwriting," by Pitchfork Media.[5] In addition to composing films and television specials for History, A&E, National Geographic, Sundance, MTV and PBS, Brill is the ongoing composer for the series The First 48 and Steven Seagal: Lawman. In 2001, he founded Scarlet Shame Records, a small record label that has released recordings by The Wingdale Community Singers, The Flying Change, Amber Rubarth and his own records.[6]

Paul also plays softball in Central Park. He's much better at fielding than hitting. (Just don't tell him that.)
