Garth Stevenson


Garth Stevenson is a Brooklyn-based film composer and double bassist. Raised in the mountains of Western Canada, nature became his primary inspiration and the common thread between his life and music. He has released two full-length solo albums, informed by his experiences carrying his 150-year-old double bass to the woods, the beach, and the desert. His most recent and critically acclaimed release, “Flying,” is an homage to a life-changing trip to Antarctica where he played along side seals, millions of penguins, icebergs and had 12 whales approach the ship while imitating their calls on his bass. In 2012, he was invited to Tuva to perform with world-renowned throat singers of the Alash Ensemble, Huun-Huur Tu, and the Tuvan National Orchestra. His most recent film scores include: “The Red Knot,” “A Fierce Green Fire,” “Young Lakota,” “Elon + Emmanuelle,” and “On Meditation.”
