One of the most versatile composers, songwriters, and arrangers in the industry, Adam Gubman’s work has been featured on dozens of television shows and commercials including AMERICA’S GOT TALENT (NBC), TABOO (National Geographic), G4TECH TV, MTV, REAL HOUSEWIVES OF MIAMI (Bravo), AURORA (Univision), ALGUIEN TE MIRA (Univision), CORAZON VALIENTE (Telemundo) and multiple national SKECHERS campaigns.
With more than 550 video game titles under his belt, Gubman composed for major interactive industry leaders, including UBISOFT, NEXON, SONY ONLINE INTERACTIVE, ACTIVISION, SQUARE-ENIX, KONAMI, ELECTRONIC ARTS, GSN, STORM8, GREE, PLAYDOM, PLAYFIRST, and DISNEY ONLINE INTERACTIVE.
Born and raised in Southern California, where he currently lives, he entered the music industry in 1994, releasing his first album under an independent record label. He entered the video game industry in 2006 with his first game for Sony Online Interactive, PIRATES OF THE BURNING SEA. He has since gained recognition as a songwriter, video game composer, and arranger for bands like CRITICAL HIT and TAYLOR DAVIS.
As a contract composer, Gubman has written for many high profile projects including NBC television broadcasts of the 2012 WINTER OLYMPICS, the NBC TODAY SHOW, the 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION and the 2010 ROYAL WEDDING. In 2013, under the direction of WARNER-CHAPPELL PRODUCTION MUSIC GROUP, Adam replaced the NBC TODAY SHOW theme song, the first time it has truly been replaced since 1988.
Most recently, Gubman is pleased to announce he is working as a contract composer for WALT DISNEY ENTERTAINMENT on some top secret projects!
Adam is currently a free agent.
“Adam is a wonderful composer with vision, style, and aesthetic depth. He composed production-ready cues with ease when my team needed to go wide, and he worked effortlessly and professionally – helping us ship early!””
Paul Lipson - audio director at Microsoft Game Studios
“The relationship we have with Adam is nothing short of irreplaceable. No other composer listens, responds, and produces results that consistently amaze us like Adam. From our core games, to our casual titles, and everywhere in between, we consider Adam a core member to our creative service agency, something we do not take lightly.”
Nick Thomas - Founder and CEO at SomaTone Interactive Inc.
“Adam is a phenomenal composer. He has a knack for creating memorable melodies and has the knowledge and skills to present them in superb arrangements. In addition, his positive and easygoing personality makes working with him a pleasure. I wholeheartedly recommend Adam for any project that requires great music.”
Richie Nieto - sound designer at Ubisoft Toronto
“Adam is a great composer who delivers on time and within budget!”
Bob Rice - owner of Four Bars Intertainment
“I subcontract to Adam when there’s an impending deadline and a serious amount of demanding work that needs to get done. In other words, Adam is able to very quickly turn around high quality work. He is talented and has a great ear. I have in in the past hired him (and will continue) for projects ranging from midi transcriptions to DS and Wii .wav compositions. He is exceptionally personable and professional and I would not hesitate to recommend him for game/web/mobile audio work.”
David Ortega - Composer and owner of Boston Soundlabs
“Adam composed much of the music for our Pirates of the Burning Sea computer game. His work was superb and we went back towards the end of production and hired him again for another round of music to make the game sound even better. He’s a terrific composer and very professional.”
John Thynes - Microsoft Studios
“Adams creativity and professional make him a pleasure to work with.”
Tim Kashani - Broadway Producer
