COMPOSER, SONGWRITER, STORYTELLER
Composer Reel (2023)
Israeli composer, songwriter and instrumentalist Omri Lahav creates music with the approach of a storyteller - blending a lush, melody-driven style with a strong sensibility for story and world-building.
Educated in Western classical music and a self-taught folk artist, Omri's passion for folklore and music from around the world allows him to bring some truly unique colors to every piece of music. His ability to write in a broad variety of genres, combining craftsmanship and technology with a profound love for modern orchestral repertoire make Lahav a versatile and effective composer.
Nominated for an Israeli Televsion Academy Award in 2015 and 2020, Omri is a graduate of Berklee College of Music and a member of The Recording Academy, and the Israeli Film & Television Academy.
In 2021 he created music for the EMMY nominated pilot "Over My Dead Body", which premiered at the 75th Cannes Film Festival. That same year, Lahav was longlisted for a Best Original Score OSCAR for his work on the feature documentary "Quiet Explosions: Healing The Brain" by two-time EMMY winning director, Jerri Sher.
Lahav's 2019 world music score for Wildfire Games' indie hit 0 A.D features Los Angeles Opera soprano Elizabeth Zharoff, and is distributed by leading VMG label, The Materia Collective.
Omri lives in Israel and works as a full time composer for media.
