Robbie (Rob) Teehan is an experienced composer of music for film, TV, and video games, known for his nuanced and sophisticated scores to award-winning indie dramas and documentaries such as Scarborough, The Babushkas of Chernobyl, Love Letters from Everest, and the Oscar-shortlisted Frame 394.

Robbie spent six years in Los Angeles working with four-time Emmy Award-winning composer Sean Callery, contributing to over 250 episodes of major network TV shows Jessica Jones, Elementary, Homeland, Designated Survivor, The Hot Zone, The Inhumans, Bones, Bull, and 24: Legacy, and box-office #1 feature film The Marskman.  Robbie is an alumnus of the Canadian Film Centre’s Slaight Music Residency and the Berlinale Talent Campus.

Robbie studied classical tuba and composition and has written and arranged for artists and ensembles across North America.  He was Composer-in-Residence for the National Youth Orchestra of Canada, Sinfonia Toronto, the Colours of Music Festival, and the Church of the Redeemer.    At age 27 his orchestral work, “Dreams of Flying”, was nominated for a JUNO award (Canada’s Grammy equivalent) for “Classical Composition of the Year”. 

Branching out from his classical training, Robbie enjoyed a diverse freelance performing career in Toronto’s melting-pot music scene, and toured Canada and Europe with noted Canadian artists such as Lemon Bucket Orkestra, the Heavyweights Brass Band, the Boxcar Boys, and SATE.  Robbie has recorded on over 50 albums and single releases, often serving as producer or co-producer, and has earned four JUNO and eight Canadian Folk Music Award nominations.

Robbie is currently based in Ottawa and Toronto, Canada, bringing his eclectic musical background and sensitive ear to serve a global clientele in the media and entertainment industry.
