Jeffrey W. â€œJeffâ€ Danna is a Canadian composer and musician noted for his work in film scores. He is the younger brother of Academy Award and Emmy-winning composer Mychael Danna.
A reluctant piano student at age eight, Burlington, Ontario-born Jeffrey Danna found solace in the guitar at age eleven. He began playing professionally at fifteen until a hand injury in 1987 curtailed his performance career. He subsequently began composing for films and in 1991 moved to Los Angeles to continue working.
He has created scores for a long and varied list of films, both animated and live-action. His credits include such divergent projects as All Saints Day, Fracture, Terry Gilliam's The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus, The Kid Stays in the Picture, Resident Evil: Apocalypse, Miss Spider, Silent Hill, O, Richard Attenborough's Closing the Ring, and Neil Labute's Lakeview Terrace.
