Jon Everist is a Seattle based composer mostly known for his work in video games. He scored the critically acclaimed Shadowrun: Hong Kong and its predecessor “Dragonfall” which was named PC Gamers “Top 100 PC Games of All Time”. He is currently writing the score for BattleTech (coming in 2018); one of the most successful video game Kickstarters in history by Harebrained Schemes. Jon started producing electronic music at a young age, influenced by an eclectic mix of artists like Aphex Twin, MF Doom, Bjork and Radiohead. After producing and touring as a member of Seattle-based hip hop group Rudy and The Rhetoric, Jon pivoted to pursue a degree in music and began his journey as a composer. Jon’s style borrows influences from the different stages in his career, combining his electronic background with his obsession for the classical orchestra and modern film scoring techniques.
"The Shadowrun series was a joy to work on, and will always occupy a special place in my memory. I felt humbled and privileged that I got to write themes for characters like Glory, and to fill the streets of dystopian Hong Kong with my unique take on this compelling and rich universe. The talented team at HBS and their fantastic writing made my job easy.“ - Jon Everist
