IV the Polymath is a Grammy-Nominated Music Composer, Producer & Multi-Instrumentalist from Muncie, Indiana, USA.
He had his first formal violin recital when he was two years old, began piano lessons at age four & later picked up drums & guitar when he was ten. Growing up, his family moved around the country so much that music became the only constant in his life.
Throughout his youth, IV played & sang in dozens of bands before learning about music production in college. Once he learned that he could compose & record everything himself, he became a one-man operation & never looked back.
After graduate school, in 2010, IV established Polymath Records LLC, which he owns & operates to this day. Polymath Records is an independent music company specializing in Original Sample Compositions, Film/Television Music & Record Production.
To date, the label has released 15 albums & licensed music to companies including HBO, Netflix, ESPN, TNT, FX, MTV, BET, Subaru, VICE & Mountain Dew. Polymath Records has also released 9 original “Sample Packs,” some of which have made their way onto songs by Method Man, Protoje, Gunplay, Black Soprano Family (Benny The Butcher), Saint Bodhi, Tommy Genesis & more. These compositions have also landed on albums released by RCA Records, Def Jam Records, Maybach Music Group & Empire Records as well as video games including FIFA 22.
IV works out of Polymath Records’ principal recording studio in Muncie, Indiana & is currently composing original music for some of the industry’s leading artists as well as writing & recording songs for his own band. He continues to compose music for film & television.
