What Film Scores Inspired Composer Jermaine Stegall (Coming to America 2, Praise This, Proximity) on His Way to Becoming a Composer?

Every so often, we get an opportunity to interview someone who composes music for film. We always learn so much about the collaboration between composers and directors from these conversations and this week's episode is no different.

We were delighted to speak with Jermaine Stegall, composer of films such as Coming to America 2, Praise This, Senior Year and Proximity. He's also worked with composer Daniel Hart on the recently released, Peter Pan and Wendy.

We Discuss:

-Jermaine's background as a musician

-The challenges of composing during COVID

-Some of the amazing musicians that Jermaine has been able to work with on his recent scores.
