Welcome to the official web site of Grammy and multiple Emmy Award winning composer Brian Keane.
Multiple Emmy award winning composer, Grammy award winning producer, and noted guitarist Brian Keane has scored literally hundreds of films and television shows, and produced over 150 albums, mostly from his studio in the woods of Connecticut. His music has been hailed critically as "indelible and breathtaking" by the Los Angeles Times, "piercingly beautiful" by The New York Times and "masterful" by Newsweek, and he has been called a "musician's musician" by Downbeat, a "composer's composer" by The Hollywood Reporter, and “one of the most impressive musicians of the decade” by the editor of Billboard magazine.

Among Brian’s many enduring credits are “New York” the epic, multiple Emmy winning Burns documentary series that is among the biggest selling documentaries of all time, “Long Journey Home” which won a Grammy for it’s soundtrack in collaboration with The Chieftains, Van Morrison, Elvis Costello, Sinead O’Connor, and others, the classic “Winter’s Solstice” record series for Windham Hill which he produced, and his ground breaking ethnic recordings with middle eastern musician Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Irish musician Joanie Madden, and many others.

August 2021: Summer Updates

Brian was recently inducted into the New England Music Hall of Fame along with Muddy Waters, James Cotton, and others. He was awarded the New York Festivals Grand Award for his work on Susan Lacy’s “Very Ralph”, an HBO biopic about famed designer, Ralph Lauren. Brian also scored Fritz Mitchell’s 10-hour series “Saturdays in the South” for ESPN - SEC Stories, which also brought home gold awards from New York Festival’s Film and TV Awards. Brian scored a new logo for the SEC storied channel on ESPN’s network as well.

"Oliver Sacks: His Own Life” received a rare 100% rating both for audiences and critics alike on the Rotten Tomatoes site during its Kino Lorber theatrical release with Zeitgeist Films, with an upcoming network TV release in the spring of 2022 on the PBS American Masters television series. Soundtracks for "Oliver Sacks", and the 2020 critically acclaimed documentary “Driving While Black” came out on Valley Entertainment in late 2020. Brian recently completed a score to Steeplechase Film’s  epic 3-hour project on "Dante’s Inferno" for Italian TV, that will also be broadcast in the spring of 2022 on PBS.

Brian is slated to begin a couple of sports features next with Andy Billman’s “War on the Diamond”, a film about the Cleveland Indians, and award winning director Fritz Mitchell takes on the fascinating and controversial story of college football star Bobby Hoppe for ESPN, who was involved in a secret past homicide. The multiple Emmy winning Joe Lavine and Ross Greenburg formerly of HBO Sports are reviving their classic documentary “Nine Innings From Ground Zero”, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the attacks on 9/11. Brian won an Emmy for that score. Ric Burns' epic “New York” series is slated to add another episode as well for 2022. Leases continue to go well for Brian's music catalog through his searchable library. ASCAP has confirmed over 700 cue sheets, and nearly 10,000 titles for Brian Keane Music, Inc.

On a sad note, Brian’s father George F. Keane, a noted philanthropic investment strategist who founded The Commonfund and served as treasurer for the United Negro College Fund, passed away in May of 2021 at the age of 91. Brian was very close with his father, though their businesses had nothing in common.
