Composer Bear McCreary earned his third EMMY nomination this morning for Main Titles Theme for STARZ’s BLACK SAILS. McCreary won the EMMY Award in the same category last year for DA VINCI’S DEMONS.

“I knew when I had the chance to team up once again with showrunner Jonathan E. Steinberg and the supportive team at STARZ that they would push me to write something unusual for this unique pirate drama. When I dusted off my hurdy gurdy and started writing a heavy metal sea shanty, I never imagined that one day it would be nominated for an Emmy! I am thrilled and grateful for this recognition, and to be in such stellar company as my fellow nominees,” said McCreary.
