    Maureen Crowe | Independent Music Supervisor

    Maureen Crowe is a true pioneer, leader and one of the most powerful voices in music supervision today. She continues to challenge the entertainment industry landscape to evolve and inspire, while preserving the integrity of music design supervision in all media. Recruited by The Recording Academy, Crowe was elected as the first female President of the Los Angeles Chapter of the Recording Academy and National Trustee, where she advocated for music supervisor voting rights and award status. She also brought together leading music supervisors to form the Guild of Music Supervisors and created the Guild of Music Supervisor Awards, while advocating and securing membership in the music branch of The Television Academy. This led to the creation of an Emmy Award for music Supervision in addition to increasing the representation of woman winning Emmys.

    As the Founding President of the Guild of Music Supervisors in 2008, Crowe made incredible strides towards rights advocacy, fostering colleague relationships, educating future professionals, promoting her peers and their work. Plus, she was responsible for driving the many vital initiatives that have created a strong foundation for the Guild membership, governance, advocacy and sponsorship development.

    As a music supervisor, Crowe is known for her exceptional musical design, casting, original song creation, on-camera performance and marketing acumen and has been called upon to come in and “redesign” the musical style of a film. Crowe has spearheaded some of the most groundbreaking achievements in the field, most notably the creation of the best-selling soundtrack album of all time. With 45 million copies sold worldwide, The Bodyguard soundtrack includes the chart-topping single “I Will Always Love You,” which Crowe pitched to producer and star Kevin Costner. During her speech accepting the GRAMMY Award for The Album of the Year, Whitney Houston thanked Crowe for her “ears” in suggesting the song.

    Crowe’s passion for music began growing up in a family that loved musical theatre. Piano, guitar, glee club and musical performance from elementary through college acted as her training ground. As a journalism major at Marist College, she interned and was hired at CBS News Radio 88. Transferring to Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Communication, she worked for The Associated Press for the Lake Placid Winter Olympics and eventually was on-air talent and producer for a local New York PBS TV series called “Upstate Travels,” where she featured contemporary music as score.

    Her recent projects include, I Wanna Dance with Somebody, the Whitey Houston biopic produced by the Houston family and Clive Davis; “The Ms. Pat Show” for BET+, Jordan Cooper, Brian Grazer and Lee Daniels-produced; HBO documentary “Steven Van Zandt”; Apple Skydance Animation project; Kristin Chenoweth and Kenny Ortega’s Broadway Boot Camp; PBS American Masters “Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It,” produced by Norman Lear, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and Michael Kantor

    Crowe is a member of The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, The Television Academy, The Recording Academy, and The Guild of Music Supervisors.
