Carvin Knowles is a composer, producer and recording artist from Los Angeles. While the focus of his music career has been primarily music for independent films, he has also become known for producing funky beat-driven dance tracks.

Carvin's music has appeared in over 25 feature films.

At the beginning of his film music career, Carvin was regarded as the go-to guy for any job that seemed too difficult, strange or controversial for other composers. His first real break came with Universal's American Pie, but his range has included Orchestral Score, Jazz, House, Jungle, Lounge, Dub, Breakbeat, Blues, Indie Rock, Ancient Music, World Music and Funk.

Carvin currently lives in New Zealand.
