Jahn Sood is a New York based writer and composer. He wrote the script and score for the film We Were An Island. He assisted composer Pat Irwin (of the B-52’s) on the scores of Netflix’ The Good Cop, Showtime’s Nurse Jackie, HBO’s Bored to Death, AMC’s Feed the Beast, and several films. His original works for the theater including The Disappearing Man, In A Sea of Faces and others have been presented in New York, regionally and internationally.  He was a founding member of Ezra Furman & the Harpoons and toured nationally with the group.   He is a proud graduate of NYU Tisch and Tufts University.  When he isn’t writing, Jahn records rock bands, musicals, audio books and film scores.

In Production:

We Were An Island is having its first round of screening across New England.  Check out the schedule here.  Next stop is the Criterion in Bar Harbor, ME August 24th.

The Disappearing Man was in the NYMF Reading Series in July 2019.

In A Sea of Faces will have a reading Sept 7 on Governor’s Island with Hypokrit Theater Company.

I will be performing with Natalie Mishell and her band on September 9, 2019 at the Cutting Room NYC, celebrating the release of her record The Box.

In Development:

The Kukrejas – is a new TV pilot I recently wrote with director/co-creator Nikhil Mehta.

Out of the Shadow – is a new educational musical I am working on with Bit Art Productions.  The show explores how blockchain technology can be used as a tool to fight Modern Slavery.

How the Light Gets In – is a commission I just received from The ASCAP Foundation to write a new 30 minute musical that will be performed Dec 9th in NYC.

All the Things – is an EP I recorded with Natalie Mishell that we will hopefully mix and master soon, which features performances by Jacob Fjeldheim, Ben Kogan, Brianna Leary, Rich Pagano and ourselves.
