Rob Teehan is a creative adventurer, a master musical artist and craftsman, and a relentless seeker of personal growth.   He is an award-winning composer of music for film, TV, video games, and the concert stage, and a veteran musician, singer-songwriter, arranger, and music producer.

Rob recently completed a five-year apprenticeship in Los Angeles with four-time Emmy Award-winning composer Sean Callery, which saw him working on over 250 episodes of major network TV shows like Jessica Jones, Elementary, Homeland, Designated Survivor, Bones, Bull, 24: Legacy, and many others, often contributing additional music.

Born in Toronto, Rob began his musical journey studying tuba and classical composition and, at age 27, he became the youngest JUNO nominee (Canada’s Grammy equivalent) for “Classical Composition of the Year” in the history of that category.  Rob has written and arranged for classical artists across North America and was Composer-in-Residence for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, Sinfonia Toronto, and the Church of the Redeemer.

Branching out from his classical training, Rob became known around Toronto for his ability to play bass lines on sousaphone in any genre, and toured Canada and Europe with a multitude of bands including Lemon Bucket Orkestra, the Heavyweights Brass Band, the Boxcar Boys, and SATE.  Rob has recorded on over 50 albums and single releases, often serving as producer or co-producer, and has earned four JUNO and eight Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.

After completing the Canadian Film Centre Slaight Music film scoring program, Rob moved to Los Angeles in 2015. He brings his eclectic background and well-travelled ear into his film scoring projects, which have included award-winning documentaries The Babushkas of Chernobyl, Take Light, The Sugar Bowl, and the Oscar-shortlisted Frame 394.  He is currently at work on the Canadian feature film Scarborough based on the award-winning book by Catherine Hernandez.
