Yvette Metoyer grew up in sunny Southern California and spent many countless hours scoring life’s
memories by making mixtapes for her high school and college friends. Inspired by her love of music and TV at an early age, she pursued a career in television production after having graduated from Cal State Long Beach.
After having worked on several successful shows, including the HBO series, “Big Love”, a lengthy WGA writers’ strike shut down all LA productions, and Yvette decided to take a music supervision extension course at UCLA.
A one year apprenticeship with SuperMusicVision blossomed into an over ten-year working relationship with exciting collaborations on multiple film & TV projects, including the Emmy-award winning AMC series, “Breaking Bad” and the zombie apocalypse ratings juggernaut, “The Walking Dead”. Yvette currently works as the music supervisor on the acclaimed new courtroom drama series “For Life” – created by Hank Steinberg and executive produced by Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and she has just started production on the third season of the smash hit Amazon original series, “The Boys”.
As a compliment to her career, Yvette has also been focusing on community support and volunteering. She is a member of Black Women in Media Collective, founded by a group of friends and colleagues who are highly skilled in their respective fields of the entertainment business, with the goal of uplifting and supporting women on a mission towards success and breaking barriers in the industry. She is also a member of the non-profit Free the Work, an organization that focuses on promoting the employment of talented professionals from underrepresented groups (women, POC, LGBTQ) within various fields of the entertainment industry (including directorial, editorial, composers, etc.) by creating a curated network of proficient artists looking to showcase their skills, and sharing this information with studio executives,
production companies, music supervisors, agents, etc., with the goal of introducing new and undiscovered talent, for consideration on projects and work opportunities.
In July 2020, Yvette decided to take the reins and develop her own music supervision company, Sounds In Color, which focuses primarily on music supervision for film and television projects but also includes some ad and promo production as well, and she looks forward to taking Sounds In Color on a course of new and exciting endeavors heading into 2021.
