Composer

Yutaka Yamada is a Los Angeles-based music composer known for his work on the anime television series "Tokyo Ghoul", "VINLAND SAGA" and major Japanese films such as "Death Note:Light Up the New World", "BLEACH" and "KINGDOM". His masterpiece soundtracks for "Tokyo Ghoul" have gained worldwide popularity with related videos totaling over 120 million views on Youtube.

In 2018, Yamada composed for "Cry Me a Sad River", a Chinese film which had succeeded with USD $51Mil. In the same year, Eminem sampled Yamada's masterpiece "Glassy Sky (from "Tokyo Ghoul")" on his song "Good Guy" in his "Kamikaze" album. 
In 2019, he worked alongside Sony Pictures for their mega-hit live-action film "KINGDOM" in which he received a nomination for the 43rd Japan Academy Film Prize for Best Music Score. WIT STUDIO, famous for producing "Attack on Titan", released the animation series "VINLAND SAGA", with an original soundtrack composed entirely by Yamada. 

This year, Yamada collaborated with WIT STUDIO again on their most anticipated original animation series "GREAT PRETENDER". He had also recently worked with Riot Games for Spirit Blossom, a League of Legends film project.

Born in 1989, Yamada graduated from Senzoku Gakuen College of Music where he passionately studied musical composition. In 2009, he entered and won the first prize at VIENNA INSTRUMENTS Strings Arrangement Contest. Today, he is represented by Soundtrack Music Associates, and has since relocated his production base from Tokyo to Sonic Fuel Studios in Los Angeles.
