Dewey Dellay started his career playing bass in such diverse settings as jazz with Gary Burton and Pat Metheny, rock with Ronnie Spector, and classical with the MIT Orchestra. His experience as a player naturally lead to composing for television, including the soap opera "Guiding Light", the cooking show "A Taste of the Mediterranean", and national commercials for products like AOL, Imitrex, Rogaine, and Levitra.
Some films he has composed music for are "Amy's Rules", "Pearl Harbor - The View from Japan", "Haunted Lantern", and "Chaos and Order" (documentary on The American Repertory Theatre).
Dewey's theater work includes original music for The Countess, presented at Lamb's Theater in New York and then in London's West End. It also includes Maiden's Prayer at The Huntington Theatre in Boston and Betrayal, winner of an Elliot Norton Award. He has also been nominated for an IRNE in Boston for sound design in Fully Committed produced by the Lyric Stage Company.
