Biography

As a composer, Nick Urata—front man of the internationally acclaimed band DeVotchKa — has scored such films as Little Miss Sunshine, the Sundance hit that garnered four Academy Award nominations. He recently co-scored the hit romantic comedy Crazy, Stupid, Love (starring Steve Carell and Ryan Gosling). His other scores include Fling, I Love You Phillip Morris, The Joneses, Waiting for Forever, Father of Invention, and Dustin Lance Black’s directorial debut Virginia (starring Emma Roberts and Ed Harris. ) His latest work includes the score for the Stephen Gyllenhaal comedy Grassroots and Little Miss Sunshine directors Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris’s Ruby Sparks. Coming up for Urata is Arthur Newman, Golf Pro for director Dante Ariola.
Urata left his native New York to play music in Chicago, then moved to Denver where he formed DeVotchKa. Their music, in particular the song “Till the End of Time,” left its impression on the indie hit Little Miss Sunshine, and Urata has enjoyed an impressive stay in film ever since.
