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.
