Composer and recording artist Michael Whalen

Recently I had the chance to catch up with composer and music producer Michael Whalen. He's joined our show multiple times over the last few years to share his latest releases. You likely have heard his music at some point, as he's worked on more than 800 TV and film scores, thousands of commercials and numerous TV themes and video games.

Michael's musical output is enormous and ranges from "ambient/new age to jazz to soundtrack/theme music, world music, singer/songwriter, classical and crossover." This latest release is titled "Walk in Beauty, Like the Night." The "ambient" music clearly sets a tone and atmosphere, but also has quite a bit of melodic and harmonic material.

I hope you enjoy our chat and listen to the excerpts below! The album is available on most streaming platforms.
