Ryan Lott composes music for film, theater and dance. Lott has worked with choreographers Travis Wall, Stephen Petronio and Gina Gibney. Film credits include composing and arranging for five major features, most notably The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby (2014), Paper Towns (2015), and Mean Dreams (2017), which premiered at Cannes and the Toronto Film Festival 2016.

In addition to his solo work, in 2007 Ryan founded Son Lux. Son Lux “works at the nexus of several rarely-overlapping Venn Diagrams” (Pitchfork). With the additions of guitarist-composer Rafiq Bhatia and drummer Ian Chang to the band, Son Lux is now a ferocious trio both live and on record. Their latest release Brighter Wounds, released in February 2018 on City Slang Records, documents this new venture while showcasing the band’s unique mix of electronic pop, unusual soul, and outright experimentalism.
