Michael Bryan Stein is a Los Angeles-based award-winning composer who has scored over sixty-five film and television projects. Michael composed the score for New Wave: Baseball's Next Generation, an UNINTERRUPTED documentary production from Executive Producers LeBron James, Maverick Carter, and CC and Amber Sabathia, in association with Major League Baseball.  Michael's score for the original series pilot, Workforce, had its world premiere at the TLC Chinese Theatres in Hollywood and was awarded Best Score at multiple international film festivals.    

Michael's other scoring projects include the short film Windows, selected by United Talent Agency for their NextGen showcase and nominated at the 43rd College Television Awards, and the short film Gladys Brown starring Anna Maria Horsford (Minority Report, The Wayans Brothers) which airs regularly on Shorts TV network.  He is currently scoring two feature-length documentaries scheduled for release in 2024.


An experienced multi-instrumentalist, Michael's scores often draw from his vast collection of guitars, percussion instruments, synthesizers, and exotic folk instruments.  He is sought-after as a collaborator for notable film composers including Kovas (composer for the Netflix series, On My Block), Joe Trapanese (The Witcher, Shadow and Bone) and Francesco Le Metre, with whom he composed additional music for the Amazon Audible series, American Football.

Michael's broad musical background includes music direction, arranging, music preparation, and playing keyboards and other instruments for many notable artists including Sally Struthers, Bernard “Pretty” Purdie, and Blood, Sweat & Tears.  Michael earned a PhD from UCLA in Composition for Visual Media and is a part-time professor at UCLA's Herb Alpert School of Music and at the Herbie Hancock Institute of Jazz.
