Maddie Stephenson is a Los Angeles-based composer, pianist, songwriter, and arranger known for her unique juxtapositions of harmony and texture. A recent Master's degree recipient from NYU Screen Scoring, Stephenson has had the privilege of collaborating with numerous talented filmmakers, showrunners, game designers, and podcast creators. Many of these projects have received recognition at festivals such as Doc NYC, Austin Film Festival, and the 33 International Film Festival (Best Original Score). Maddie is now working on the score for Federico Napoleone's LETTER BY LETTER, an independent feature currently in post production.
Since beginning her career as a composer in 2017, Stephenson has written a multitude of solo and chamber works that have been performed across the globe, reaching from Sutivan, Croatia to Topeka, Kansas. In 2020, she was commissioned by Washburn University to write a wind ensemble piece, “Cycles,” which premiered in May of 2022. Most recently, Stephenson was invited for the second time by Kearsarge Regional High School (NH) to write a piece for wind band, "Act Three," set to premiere this spring. 
Maddie was recently selected for the Composer Spotlight at the ASCAP Columbia Film Scoring Workshop 
(Spring 2023). During her undergraduate years at Boston University, Stephenson received the School of Music Departmental Award for Music Theory & Composition (2021), and was among two students selected to attend the 2019 ALEA III/Berklee Composition Workshop in Athens, Greece. She has acquired multiple awards for concert piano performance in her youth, and continues to utilize her chops in both her compositions and as an actively gigging pianist, which has led her to perform in historic venues such as Rockwood Music Hall (NYC), Mohawk (Austin), and Beat Kitchen (Chicago). Maddie has thoroughly enjoyed her journey as a musician thus far, and looks forward to where it will take her next.
