Stephen Houston

Film and Trailer Composer

Stephen Houston on SoundBetter

Need something epic? Or maybe tense? Emotional? Something to draw viewers into your world?

My name is Stephen Wilson but my composer/artist name is Stephen Houston. I make many different types of music, from hip hop to singer/songwriter. From synthwave to orchestral.

My favorite music to make is hybrid orchestral, epic tracks for trailers, film, TV and video games!

Give me a video to score and I'll score it.
Give me a reference track, not to copy but to emulate the energy... I can do that.
Or let me know what energy you're going for, what story you're telling... and I'll make music that evokes that very feeling for your viewers.

If you're not a media creator but still need some epic sounding music, just let me know your needs and we'll sort something out!

I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.

Interview with Stephen Houston

  1. Q: What type of music do you usually work on?

  2. A: Usually epic tracks. But I do love to work on more chill, yet dramatic and tense tracks.

  3. Q: What's your strongest skill?

  4. A: Hybrid orchestral composition.

  5. Q: What do you bring to a song?

  6. A: I bring a certain depth and vast energy to the project.

  7. Q: What's your typical work process?

  8. A: My process depends on the client's needs. If a video already exists I would score it to its exact needs. If not, I would use a reference track or description of the energy needed to get the right feel. Then I'd start with the instrument that first comes to mind or has been requested and I would build the track around that. Finetuning it until I've achieved what's needed.

  9. Q: Tell us about your studio setup.

  10. A: I have just gotten a fantastic laptop for work. I use Cubase 12 Pro, with several different instrument libraries and synthesizers, such as EastWest ComposerCloud, Omnisphere and more.

  11. Q: What other musicians or music production professionals inspire you?

  12. A: I'm vastly inspired by Hans Zimmer, Two Steps From Hell and Really Slow Motion. Lesser known is CRZYSND and Michael Yang, these guys really inspire me every day.

  13. Q: Describe the most common type of work you do for your clients.

  14. A: I usually make cinematic music for YouTubers and such. This is my most popular service.
