Hailing from Tel-Aviv, Israel, Shie Rozow was introduced to the piano when he was just 5 years old. Unfortunately, he had no interest in learning how to read music or practice, so after two years and countless frustrated instructors his parents gave up on their son's musical studies – or lack thereof. About 6 years later, Shie noticed the old dusty upright piano that had been abandoned for all these years and once again tickled those black and white keys. But this time it would be different. No teachers, no sheet music, no practicing. Shie simply played what he wanted, when he wanted, how he wanted. More often than not, his own compositions.
As Shie's affair with music evolved, he became fascinated with the technology of producing music, throwing himself into the world of synthesis, sampling & sequencing. Following his high-school graduation, Shie spent 3 years serving with distinction in the Israeli Defense Force before attending Rimon School of Jazz & Contemporary Music, where he began his formal musical training. Shie went on to earn a scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he completed his bachelors degree majoring in Film Scoring and graduating Magna Cum Laude. Following his graduation, Shie moved to Los Angeles where he built a career as a composer, music editor and music supervisor for film, TV and interactive media.
Shie's credits span nearly every genre and style including blockbuster movies such asGuardians of the Galaxy, Oz: The Great & Powerful and Spider-Man 2; critically acclaimed indie features like Big Eyes, Addicted and Hustle & Flow; feature documentaries likeErrol Morris' The Unknown Known& Tabloid; Hit TV shows includingGo On and Desperate Housewives, to name a few.
His work has earned him 13 Golden Reel Award nominations, including two wins – the first as assistant music editor for the hit musical Chicago, and the second as music editor for IMAX: Deep Sea. He lives in the Los Angeles area with his wife, two sons, and their pets.
