Josh Kramon was born in Silverlake, California and first fell in love with music when he was four years old, bringing his favorite Beatles records to nursery school. After learning to play the guitar at nine years old, Josh picked up every musical instrument he could get his hands on.
He listened to a variety of different types of music ranging from Jazz and Rock to Classical. After playing in different rock bands in high school, Josh delved into writing orchestral and electronic music on the side, eventually studying composition at USC’s renowned Thorton School of Music.
His studies at USC were cut short, however, when his band “The Imposters” were signed to Interscope records in 1994. The group had a cult following in the mid-nineties and performed regularly in Hollywood. After leaving “The Imposters” Josh switched gears and started focusing on Film and Television music which landed him a gig working for composer Jean Christophe Beck.
While working for Beck he got his first credited show; “Nick Freno: Licensed teacher: a multi camera half hour that ran on The WB network for two years. From there, Kramon built his career scoring in a wide variety of styles (most notably the “Veronica Mars” TV series and movie) and most recently “iZmobie” for The CW, “Forever” for ABC and the upcoming “Heartbreaker” for NBC.
Throughout the years Josh has also managed to put out his own songs on several records most of which he plays all the instruments and performs all the lead vocals. Many of his songs have been used in TV shows including “October Road,” “Miami Ink”, “Veronica Mars” and “The Rachel Zoe Project”.
In 2012 Josh teamed up with Chauncey Jacks to form “The Kays” whose songs have also been used on various TV projects including the final scene for ABC Family’s “Switched at Birth” and “Ben and Kate” for FOX.
