Philadelphia-born, New York-bred, Los Angeles-based, Robert ToTeras is one of the most versatile composers working in television and feature films.
Recently Robert wrote the music for award-winning director Daniel Adams’ feature film ‘The Walk’, starring Terrence Howard, Malcolm McDowell and Justin Chatwin. ‘The Walk’ explores the Boston desegregation bussing crisis in the 1970s, and the ensuing racial tension which followed.
Since 2013 Robert has scored Oxygen’s hit show ‘Cold Justice’ produced by legendary producer Dick Wolf. ‘Cold Justice’ will air its 100th episode in September 2022.
Robert has also scored multiple shows for Netflix including ‘Sugar Rush’ (for which he won a 2020 BMI Award) and its spin-offs ‘Sugar Rush: Christmas’ and ‘Sugar High.’
Other projects have included TV shows for NBC, CBS, TNT, Bravo and TeenNick, documentaries for Showtime, and a series of viral promos for the hit HBO show ‘Girls.’
In a previous life outside of Hollywood and music, Robert ToTeras spent three years as professional blackjack gambler, and member of a card-counting team in Las Vegas. He has been politely escorted (by well-dressed security teams with earpieces) out of numerous and well-known gaming establishments. The story of his team’s exploits was chronicled in Josh Axelrad’s Penguin Press biography ‘Repeat Until Rich.’
