THE SINGING BEE/MUSICIANS

Steve Dorff

Industry observers have dubbed multiple award-winning Steve Dorff an enigma who has evolved into a gifted composer in every musical field. There is no way to capture the diversity he regularly displays scoring major motion pictures, television, theater or via an array of No. 1 hit songs. In addition to winning the NSAI songwriter of the year award, Dorff has also been honored with more than 40 BMI and 11 Billboard No. 1 awards.

His was a formidable breakthrough, accelerated through a highly productive association with the legendary Clint Eastwood, beginning with "Every Which Way but Loose."
Three-time Grammy nominee and a fixture on the nation's charts, his dossier includes nine No. 1 film songs and 15 Top 10 hits, including the Kenny Rogers' classic "Through The Years," a BMI 3 million performance song, as well as "I Just Fall in Love Again," the Anne Murray record that captured Billboard's No. 1 song of the year honors. His many songs have been sung by some of the greatest artists of our time -- Barbra Streisand, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, George Strait, Vanessa Williams and countless others.

Emmy nominee for five television compositions, his credits include such stalwarts as Murphy Brown and Murder She Wrote. You'll also find his name on classic hits like Growing Pains, Major Dad, Columbo and Reba.

His many TV and cable movie credits include the Emmy nominated CBS mini-series Elvis, the Hallmark Hall of Fame Rose Hill, Babe Ruth, The Quick and the Dead, Moonshine Highway and The Defiant Ones. Dorff's many movie songs and scores have been featured in numerous hits such as Rocky IV, Pure Country, Tin Cup, Dudley Do-Right, The Last Boy Scout, Curly Sue and Honky Tonk Man.

Perhaps Dorff's most ambitious move to date has been a giant leap into his first love, musical theater. He currently has two projects making their way to the stage -- Josephine (The Josephine Baker Story) and Pure Country (The Musical).

He continues to be ever present in today's recording scene with new songs being released by Lee Ann Womack and Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Bill Medley. He is currently producing a new Christmas CD with Rodney Carrington and starting production on a score for a new motion picture when not working on CMT's The Singing Bee.

Roger Cain

Roger Cain is an extremely dynamic and talented guitar player who makes a big impression wherever he goes.

His father, Christopher, has directed such films as Young Guns and Pure Country. His brother, Dean, is an actor.

Scotty Kormos

Scotty Kormos personifies modern drumming in its best light. Rock solid rhythms and an electrifying entertainer, he is pure fun to watch. Hailing from Cleveland, he has performed and recorded with an incredible range of acts, including young artists such as Mitchell Musso (co-star of the Hannah Montana TV show) to legendary artists such as B.J. Thomas and Bill Medley. His drumming has been heard on countless TV shows such as Beverly Hills 90210, Dawsons Creek, Party of Five, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, The Rodney Show, the Elvis mini-series and countless cable movies. He now lives in Los Angeles where for the last several years he has done numerous projects with The Singing Bee musical director, Steve Dorff. When Dorff needed a drummer for The Singing Bee, Kormos was his first call. In addition to playing nearly 150 shows a year, he has found the time to do more studio work and even start producing other artists for such major labels as Disney Records. He considers himself a musical drummer who serves the song first and foremost. His consummate skills as a drummer, producer and engineer keep him a top call musician in Los Angeles. When not in the studio, Kormos loves to perform with his The Singing Bee bandmates in their other band called Don't Stop Believin, a Journey tribute band.
