Mike "Or Michael's Fine Too" Malarkey


Hi, I'm Mike Malarkey

I'm a composer and music producer. I’m a graduate of the DePaul University School of Music where I studied audio engineering and composing. While in school I worked as session musician for multiplantinum producer David D.A. Doman; eventually branching out on my own. I've had music placements with Young Money Records, CBS Sports, Vice, History Channel, a wide variety of independent artists and scores for independent films that you've likely never seen but certainly have exquisite music.

You may have heard my music in collaboration with Big Dipper. Most recently making press (here, here, and here) with the sensual love ballad "LaCroix Boi" that Mike produced and co-wrote the music for. He also worked on the video as a producer.

As a director I've worked on a number of critically acclaimed web series including "FREESTYLE WRAPS" for Broadway Video's "Mas Major", and "The Adventures of Black Chaplin" for JASH. I also directed and co-wrote the indie web series Young Couple which swept the award ceremony at the 2015 LA Web Fest (I posted the laurels below, check 'em out)

I'm a skilled editor which I've done professionally to feed myself having worked for Will Smith, Chelsea Handler, Netflix, Condé Nast, Playboy, Funny or Die, and many others.
