Composer John Dickson Receives an ASCAP for
the Second Year in a Row
Composer John Dickson received his second ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors and
Publishers) Top Television Series award for his work on the USA Network’s hit series, Burn Notice last
night. The Top Television Series Award honors ASCAP composers who have written the themes and
underscore for the highest rated series during the period of January 1 – December 31, 2008.
Burn Notice will kick off its third season June 4, 2009 at 8:00 pm. “It’s great to be back at work with Matt
Nix and the Burn Notice team,” Dickson says. “The show just gets better and better.”
Dickson, a Texas native, brings a unique blend of musical artistry and cutting edge technology to the craft
of composition. He has an exceptional background in composing music for film, telev 00004000 ision, and
the recording industry as well as performing with such artists as Barbra Streisand, Elton John, and Ray
His filmography as a composer includes Burn Notice, Miss Nobody, Killer Per Caso, A Galaxy Far Far
Away and over a dozen SciFi/horror films for SciFi including Mammoth, Alien Lockdown, Larva, and
Mark Lester’s Pterodactyl. His compositions and arrangements have also appeared in Sony’s Who Killed
the Electric Car, XXX, Cool World, The Oprah Winfrey Show, General Hospital and many other television
and film projects.
For Burn Notice, Dickson has created a score that is a fusion of styles ranging from 60’s funk to

contemporary techno to salsa. His fresh approach to the score is one factor that makes the USA Network
show a hit. Dickson noted, “Burn Notice is a really fun show to write for. From the initial viewing of each
episode to the final mix of the score it’s always entertaining. Each character is so unique, so well fleshed
out, that they inspire me to keep coming up with cool music for them.”
Dickson received his first ASCAP in May of 2008. In addition to working on his third season of Burn
Notice, Dickson is wrapping work on Miss Nobody, a feature film directed by Tim Cox. Cox and Dickson
have collaborated on many projects including the telefilms Larva and Mammoth. For more information, visit
