With a diverse musical style that encompasses such genres as electronic, rock, orchestral and world music, award-winning composers Jeff & Greg Burns could accurately be described as the "modern man's musicians." They've lent their talent to such projects as "Andy Richter Controls the Universe," "Heist," "Lucky," "Life on a Stick," "Listen Up," "Notorious C.H.O.," Tony Hawk's "Pro Skater," Mattel's animated film series "Max Steel," and for the last four years have contributed to the harmonic backdrop for CBS' top-rated, investigative drama "NCIS" currently enjoyed by some 20 million viewers each week.

Born in Kingsville, Texas, the Burns brothers travelled the world as Navy brats before settling in Albuquerque, New Mexico where they spent much of their childhood eagerly absorbing the FM airwaves and vinyl medium-of-the-day. In high school, when the twins were made aware of a freshman guitar class as part of their otherwise-academic curriculum, they eagerly enrolled and shortly thereafter formed a band.

Inspired by their early home demos, the brothers' next endeavor entered them immediately into the arena of musical engineering and production when they pioneered their own mobile recording studio while Jeff attended the Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences and then downloaded the indoctrination to Greg.

At the age of 25, the Burns brothers set their sights on the music capital of the world and ventured to Los Angeles with their $2,000 life savings and a gear-filled van. Once settled, they quickly landed engineering gigs at the world-renowned Ocean Way Recording complex where they toiled away their days in 14-hour sessions with such international icons as Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, Eric Clapton, Stevie Wonder, Aerosmith, Dr. Dre and Alanis Morisette. It was here at Ocean Way where a chance meeting with Brian Kirk would begin a longtime personal and musical friendship that would eventually lead to a career in TV music composition.
