Joshua Sitron is a music composer / producer, multi-instrumentalist and sometimes shaman filmmaker. He has written music for Nickelodeon, Fox, Disney, PBS, and Showtime, including the mega-hit show, Dora the Explorer for which he served as musical director and composed the theme song and underscore.
Recently, Josh composed the Main Title Theme and musical underscore for Jonah Hill’s animated FOX sitcom Allen Gregory. When not composing music for film and television Josh produces bands and other artists at his studios in Brooklyn, NY and Northampton, MA. Including Nikki Blonsky (Hairspray, Smash), Margaret Garrett (Mr. Airplane), Mark Mulcahy (Miracle Legion, The Adventures of Pete & Pete), Duke Amayo (Antibalas, Fu Arkest-Ra), Eric Biondo (Beyondo, the Monkees), Stuart Bogie (TV on the Radio, Iron & Wine, Superhuman Happiness), along with the bands, The Wild Yaks, Big Nils, Goat Boy, Hylo-fi, Lazer& the Dookers, The Expandable Brass Band, Josephine & The Mousepeople and others, some of whom he performs with at live shows.
In 2003, Josh released his first solo original CD, the deeply personal Biblical Digital, he describes as ‘the soundtrack to my spiritual awakening’. CDBaby.com made it a featured editor’s pick and wrote, “From epic, dramatic, thunderous and sweeping like a film score to intimate, visceral, well-directed plaintive lines, this electronic album encompasses a full spectrum of light and dark, of mind and emotion, simply rotating around creativity and musical voice rather than any particular genre indications.”
That same year, he began an independent children’s project, FunkeyMonkeys, which aimed to impart more conscious and spiritual values than those dictated by the corporate children’s marketplace. To date, FunkeyMonkeys includes 5 CDs, a live band & Off-Broadway show, and several short videos. In 2002, Josh joined the accalimed improv comedy and spontaneous theater troupe, Centralia, as accompanist and musical director, which led to the 2002 Fringe Festival Musical Generica. The masters of long form improv, the Centralia group weaves 60-minute entirely made up musical theater pieces that transcend comedy.
