Bio

Mateo

Mateo Messina is a Grammy winning (Juno, 2008) composer who writes music for film, television, and the symphony.

His signature sound can be found on many of today's Oscar winning movies and independent film hits. The beauty of unfamiliar sounds becoming musical is one of Mateo's unique sought after talents.

With studios in Hollywood and Seattle, Mateo and his team deliver a unique style of filmscore. His style is curiously familiar and always interesting, his energy is ridiculously limitless, and his creativity knows no bounds. He's a dreamer and a doer. Also, since the age of 23, Mateo has written, produced, and premiered over 20 symphonies. Each premiere has been a benefit concert for families at Seattle Children's Hospital. To date, he and his team have raised over $2,000,000 for these children and their families. Mateo is an accomplished writer, a unique storyteller, a seasoned producer, a dependable man of his business, and one of this generation’s most innovative composers.
