About The Composers
Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth began working together in 2003 while scoring a film project, eventually leading to a partnership that has taken them through a variety of film, television, and now, videogame scores.

DiCola, known for co-writing eight songs for the movie STAYING ALIVE and composing, performing and producing the music scores for the movies ROCKY IV and TRANSFORMERS: THE MOVIE  (1986), continues to see his music featured at major sporting events throughout the world and cited by composers in the film and videogame industries as a major source of inspiration. Meriedeth, a Detroit native who made a name for himself performing with the Romantics, Tina Turner, and many other groups, has since become known for his contributions to prime time television shows such as THE BIG BANG THEORY and others.

Together they offer everything from the driving progressive rock heard throughout the episodic PC RPG, SATURDAY MORNING RPG and Activision's TRANSFORMERS: DEVASTATION to upbeat, comedic action in ANGRY BIRDS TRANSFORMERS, to intricate orchestral stylings that can be heard in their film and television scores. 

Vince DiCola and Kenny Meriedeth are represented by Scarlet Moon Artists.
