A composer, songwriter, singer, and band member of LA-based alternative rock band The Rescues, Gabriel Mann has made significant strides in every corner of the music industry.
Equally comfortable in drama and comedy, scoring, songwriting and production, Mann wrote the theme and currently composes for the award-winning hit comedy series MODERN FAMILY, now in its tenth season, and is currently writing and producing songs and score for ABC’s new drama A MILLION LITTLE THINGS.
Gabriel scored the Sundance Channel’s acclaimed prison drama RECTIFY, scored and wrote the original songs for all three seasons of Nickelodeon’s hit series SCHOOL OF ROCK, and recently finished music for the indie feature HUMOR ME, written and directed by Sam Hoffman of MADAM SECRETARY and OLD JEWS TELLING JOKES. Additional shows include ABC’s THE MAYOR, NBC’s MARRY ME, CBS’ 9JKL, DREAMWORKS Animation’s DAWN OF THE CROODS, FOX’s ROSEWOOD, AMAZON Studios’ THE KICKS, NBC’s ANGEL FROM HELL, ABC’s DR. KEN, and many others.
Mann has won numerous ASCAP Film and Television Awards, including 2015’s highest performance credits overall. He was a part of the Lester Sills Songwriter Workshop, and participated in the ASCAP Songwriter Residency in partnership with America SCORES, in which he co-wrote and recorded a song with students at Braddock Elementary School.
Mann produced SARA BAREILLES’ first album “Careful Confessions,” was the resident songwriter on all five seasons of Fox’s ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT and opened for ALANIS MORISSETTE as a solo artist on tour through Europe. He was also asked to compose for ABC’s YELLOW RIBBON CAMPAIGN for the 2013 holiday season, where composers were paired with filmmakers from the armed forces.
Additionally he opened for the legendary Rolling Stones in England while touring with Tim Burgess of THE CHARLATANS, sang on a JACK IN THE BOX Superbowl ad in Spanish, and is a featured vocal soloist in OFFICE SPACE and THE LORAX.
Gabriel backed up ADELE on the 2013 Academy Awards, sang on a MUSE album, and played a Christmas vs. Hanukkah show with KATY PERRY.
Between his busy schedule composing music and lending his vocals for various projects, Mann finds time to make his own solo albums, a series of yoga/massage/chillout records with side project Vive, and plays shows and records with The Rescues.
On Saturdays you will likely find him in a yellow shirt refereeing his kids’ soccer games, and/or dining at the Apple Pan on Pico Boulevard.
