Scott Szabo is the composer for several nationally syndicated TV series including “Judge Faith” (2014-Current) “Judge Alex” (2004-2014) and “Texas Justice” (2001-2004). He also produced and arranged the music for “Divorce Court” (2008-2012). In 2015 Scott won Best Original Music Award from the Houston Comedy Film Festival for a feature called “Doll Factory”. Also, in 2009, Scott won a Telly award for music for the short film Saving Evan White and won a Gold Medal in 2005 at the Park City Film Music Festival for his score of “Dancing in Twilight”.
Over the past 27 years, Scott has built a solid career as an accomplished and award-winning music composer for film, television and multimedia. With a broad approach to music, from world music to electronic to symphonic orchestra, he has spent years polishing and developing his style. The musical impulse began early in Scott. Born and raised in Austin, TX, Scott wrote his first song when he was twelve and began performing in rock bands at fifteen. The next year found him accepted into the prestigious High School for the Performing and Visual Arts (HSPVA) in Houston. However, Szabo was accepted to HSPVA on the basis of his talents in the visual arts.
Scott took music theory and piano courses, but it was art school that taught him to think conceptually and emotionally about a composition, be it on a canvas or a keyboard. Scott said, “I learned there are multiple ways to look at a problem and how to refine a raw idea. This really helps me as a composer, especially regarding music for picture.”
The 1980s and early 1990s saw Scott performing live as a singer and keyboardist through-out Texas and the southwest in bands that he put together while developing his own musical style and technique. Always writing and releasing his original songs, this culminated in Scott being signed to the indie label Fires of August.
