Hire Music Composers Michael And Spider

soundsmiths Michael Ely and Spider Taylor have been creating, working and living together for over forty years. Their long-standing relationship comes through in their music, as they are very much "in tune" with one another.

In addition to their past work in punk and post punk bands, in more recent years, Ely and Taylor have recorded four CDs of original soundtrack music. They have also composed music for several commissioned projects and recorded a campy remake of “Happy Trails” for the documentary "Walking with Freedom" which screened unofficially at Sundance in 2005. In early 2008, Michael and Spider's song "Hanuman, The Monkey God" from their Deities CDs was picked up by Touchstone Pictures for use in the release of the hip hop dance film "Step Up 2 The Streets."
