Kurt Farquhar Biography

Born in Illinois, the youngest of five children, Kurt's musical education took him from the streets of Chicago to the Music Conservatories of France. By the age of twelve he had already written his first symphonic work. Today, Kurt Farquhar is a four-time BMI award winner for most performed music on prime-time television. For over two decades Kurt has been one of the most dominant composers in television music (King of Queens, The Game, Lincoln Heights, Girlfriends, Sister Sister, Soul Food, The Parkers, South Central, The Proud Family, and many others). Some of Kurt's film credits include "Not Easily Broken", "Cover", "Lifted", and the soon to be released "96 Minutes". Kurt Farquhar is also the founder and CEO of True Music, a highly respected music licensing catalog based in Pasadena, CA.
