Scott Doherty is a Los Angeles-based composer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter. He has spent two decades immersed in a rich blend of the city's music scene, moving seamlessly between his home studio, underground clubs and the city’s legendary recording facilities. He credits this experience for his masterful improvisational ability and keen ability to intuit the course of a morphing soundscape. He is right at home with almost any musical instrument and constantly invites new ones into his repertoire. 

Scott’s talents as a musical chameleon, his inexhaustible curiosity for the audible world and his ability to evoke and drive emotion make him a sought-after force as a musical storyteller. 

Scott leaves no stone unturned when it comes to unique sonic world creation. Whether it is capturing a dogs high pitched howl and manipulating it to spike tension in a pivotal moment of Orange Is The New Black, utilizing all of the percussion qualities of beer bottles and kegs as the rhythmic foundation of the Netflix comedy 'Brews Brothers' or by happy accident discovering that a butchers knife teetering in a metal pot created the desired feeling of a rollercoaster reaching its summit in the Kevyn Aucoin documentary Larger Than Life, Scott always strives to find “that sound” or approach that leaves an audience feeling like they are experiencing something new. 

Scott Doherty’s most notable work has been as co-composer for all seven seasons of the groundbreaking Netflix Original Series ‘Orange Is The New Black’. In addition, he has scored and written songs for numerous series, films, and documentaries on networks including Netflix, HBO, HULU, SHOW, MTV, E! Network, Nickelodeon and Bravo. 

He is currently in his studio in the mountains just north of Los Angeles working on projects to be announced later this year as well as enjoying hikes in the Los Padres National forest.
