Stephen Rippy is a Texas-based composer with nearly two decades of experience writing and recording original soundtracks for games.

Since 1997, Stephen has provided music and sound design for a wide variety of titles and platforms; notable releases include Microsoft’s "Age of Empires" series, the spin-off "Age of Mythology," and "Halo Wars," as well as free-to-play mobile apps "We Farm" and "Adventure Bay." More recently, Stephen’s score for "CastleVille" won attention for its use of a live orchestra, a first for the social gaming developer Zynga.

Maintaining a separate body of work as a singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist, Stephen has independently released

ten full-length albums - including 2014’s "Mainland Static," which features a thirteen-piece string section recorded at Abbey Road Studios - and an instrumental EP ("Points," 2012).

Stephen continues to work in the Dallas area and is likely thinking about getting started on his next record.
