Greg Nicolett (born June 4, 1982) is an American composer for film, television and video games. He is best known for composing the scores to various Disney animated television series including Goldie & Bear, T.O.T.S., and Puppy Dog Pals as well as the soundtrack to the PC game Potionomics.

Early life and education

Greg graduated from the University of Michigan in 2005, and immediately landed a job scoring the CW web series Smallville: The Vengeance Chronicles. [1] In 2006, Greg moved to Chicago and joined the punk-rock marching band Mucca Pazza as a trombone player.

In 2009, Greg moved to Los Angeles to pursue his interests in composing for film and television full time.


Films and Early Work

In 2009 Greg was hired to score the mobster feature film Chicago Overcoat. The score featured a live orchestra with guitar solos performed by Steve Mazur and trumpet solos by Dusty McKinney. The score combined jazz improvisations with blues, rock, and neo-noir elements to compliment the film’s modern setting.

In 2014 Greg composed the score for the film Muted, directed by Rachel Goldberg. The film won HBO’s Short Film Award at 2014's American Black Film Festival.[2]

Collaborations with Rob Cantor

In 2014, Greg was hired by singer-songwriter Rob Cantor to create string and vocal arrangements for the viral video "Shia LaBeouf Live." [3] This led to a multi-year collaboration between the two composers, beginning with the Disney series Goldie & Bear.

Following the success of that series, Greg again collaborated with Rob on the music for Disney Jr.’s T.O.T.S. During this time, Greg was contracted by composer Andy Bean to compose additional music for the Disney series ‘’Puppy Dog Pals.’’

In 2022, Rob and Greg were again hired, as songwriter and composer respectively, to score the animated series ‘’Pupstruction.’’

Video Game Work

In 2016, whilst composing the score for Goldie & Bear, Greg was approached to compose the score for Voracious Games' debut title, Potionomics. The developers were looking to bring a Pixar-like sensibility to the animation in the game, and felt Greg's experience composing for Disney would compliment the art style well. [4] The game was released in 2022 to mostly favorable reviews[5], and in 2023 the music was nominated for 3 Game Audio Network Guild awards [6] includng "Best Music of the Year," "Best Soundtrack Album," and "Best Music for an Indie Game."
