Jason Hill is a multi-talented artist who has made a name for himself as an award-winning film composer, platinum-selling recording artist, record producer, and mixer.
As a film composer Hill got his start working with acclaimed director David Fincher on the psychological thriller film Gone Girl and has since worked on many projects with Fincher as the original music composer. Such as the Emmy-winning series MINDHUNTER, Voir, Videosyncrasy and Fincher’s only animated short film, the Emmy-winning Bad Travelling (part of the Emmy-winning series Love, Death, and Robots). Hill was also the original music composer on the upcoming film and Sundance award winner Magazine Dreams (2024), Apple's Extrapolations and City On Fire, Netflix’s Fyre: The Greatest Party That Never Happened, The Confession Killer, This Is A Robbery, Showtime’s Couples Therapy, and the film The Buffalo Hunt.

Hill is a multi-instrumentalist skilled at playing guitar, cello, piano, synthesizers, drums, and bass among many others. However, he is also known for inventing, building, and mastering his own unusual instruments which help in the unique sonic tapestries of his scores and productions.
In addition to his work in film scoring and production, Jason is also the lead singer, guitarist, and producer for the band LOUIS XIV along with the band Vicky Cryer (which contained members of bands The Killers, Muse, Julian Casablancas and the Voids, Jet, and Jamiroquai). In 2011, he also joined The New York Dolls and played bass on several tours after producing the album Dancing Backward in High Heels, their final Dolls album. He has produced, written records or otherwise worked with such artists as The Killers, David Bowie, Robbie Williams, Jet, Sky Ferreira, New York Dolls, Brandon Flowers, Ariel Pink, , The Virgins, Macy Gray, Neon Trees, The Bronx, Nick littlemore/Luke Steele - Empire of the Sun, IDKHBTFM (I Don’t Know How But They Found Me) among many others. He was also a part of the seminal alt country band CONVOY in his early years.
In 2015 Hill bought a building in Glendale that was originally built as a music studio in the mid-1970s and reimagined it into one of the world’s premier modern recording facilities, Department of Recording and Power. This iconic complex was once the birthplace of massive hits from The Beach Boys, James Brown, Barbra Streisand, Billy Joel, Michael Jackson, Joni Mitchell, Joe Cocker, and many more, and is now reborn for the next generation of influential artists.
