“A good TV theme, DOES have Pavlovian powers!” ~ Jonathan Wolff

On this week’s episode of the Smartcast we invite acclaimed musician and composer Jonathan Wolff. Jonathan is the man behind the iconic Seinfeld theme as well as having written the music for over 75 primetime series.

Creating a sonic brand is this week’s theme as Jonathan discusses the many intricacies of establishing oneself as not only a musician, but also a brand in the creative arts.

The story about his musical journey is something of wonder. He’s a masterful pianist that is both entertaining and informative. Listen this week how a young artist from Kentucky became a Hollywood music icon, a composer for TV’s most well-loved shows (including Seinfeld, Will and Grace, Married With Children, SavedByTheBell: The College Years, Caroline In The City) and now a public speaker advocating the arts to the world!
