SAUNDI WILSON – composer

Saundi Wilson has been active in virtually every sector of the music industry. His work in film and television began at age 19, and he has since composed music for A&E, CBS, ABC, and Disney as well as numerous short films. Saundi has licensed music to more than fifteen different television shows, including MTV’s “Jersey Shore.”

Shortly after completing the masters program at NYU’s Steinhardt School, Saundi scored his first feature film, “Manito,” which garnered honors at several film festivals, including Sundance and South by Southwest. Since it’s theatrical release by Film Movement, it has been licensed to HBO, Showtime and the IFC.

Saundi then began to collaborate with Sebastian Bardin, and together, they created The Brüknahm Project. Their first LP was released on Knitting Factory Records to critical acclaim and they went on to complete two European tours, performing on some of Europe’s greatest stages (North Sea, Jazz a Vienne). Brüknahm was commissioned by Universal (France) to produce tracks for Algerian star Khaled, and two remixes for AIR on the LP On My Way (EMI/Capitol). Saundi also laid down his eclectic groove as a DJ in various locales in Europe as well as his monthly Brooklyn Zoo parties in Paris.

Shortly after recording the second Brüknahm album The City of Light (distributed on Believe Digital), Saundi moved back to the U.S., bouncing between Los Angeles and Brooklyn. He remains active with The Brüknahm Project, performing with them as the featured artist at the Shanghai International Jazz Festival. Currently, Saundi is licensing songs from his catalog through Stephen Arnold Music, producing/writing for his new project Red Claire, featuring country/bluegrass artist Claire Holley, and he recently co-produced Canadian singer Jessica Brooks’ debut album Our Place Now (Bungalow 7).
