Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Reinhold Heil is a German composer and musician working in film and television. He was a founding member of both the '80s German new wave band Spliff and the Nina Hagen Band, led by the punk diva (whom he met when they were both still in Germany--they're now expats). In 1984, Heil composed his first film score, for the German drama "Baby," but had his first breakthrough nationally, and internationally, composing and providing songs for Tom Twyker's hit 1998 crime thriller, "Run Lola Run." Heil teamed up with Twyker again for his far less successful romance "The Princess and the Warrior"--which starred "Run Lola Run"'s Franka Potente--in 2000, and again in 2009, for Twyker's big-budget crime mystery "The International," starring Clive Owen and Naomi Watts. Heil's own greatest success has come on television, primarily through his work on the FBI crime drama "Without a Trace": while he composed for only six episodes of the show, he also created the show's theme music, which ran for the length of its seven seasons, earning Heil four consecutive ASCAP Awards for Top TV Series.

Heil's other outstanding TV work has come in collaboration with creator David Milch: Heil composed the most episodes of his gritty western "Deadwood," from 2004 to 2006, and then for all 10 episodes of Milch's bizarre, short-lived, surfing-themed drama, "John from Cincinnati"--both on HBO. Heil has been living in California since the late '90s.
