Titled and everything is going fine, the film chronicles the life and career of Gray's Father, Spalding Gray. After graduating from USC's film scoring program in 2015, gray was invited to participate in the Sundance Composer lab, and has since gone on to make his mark in the film scoring world. his credits range from his work with singer-songwriter Mike Posner, as both an arranger and composer, his podcast theme songs for Tina Brown and Hillary Clinton, to multiple film and television credits as an additional composer, including Apple TV+'s debut drama, The Morning Show, and Netflix's Space Force, both under the musical direction of Carter Burwell, and Netflix's Dear White People and Bridgerton, under the direction of composer Kris Bowers. He is currently writing songs for an upcoming Apple+ series, in addition to completing a score for an undisclosed feature film.
Gray's talents encompass a broad range of genres, having written numerous orchestral scores, most notably in his work for Bowers on Kobe Bryant's The Wizenard Series audio book, as well as synth-heavy scores for shows like The Morning Show. His work has been described as "dynamic and evocative" with a "mature sense of drama" and a "sophisticated understanding of the orchestra."
