Since then the he has gone on to release five full-length albums, and several EPs. The cinematic music of Lights & Motion have been used in trailers for films such as Concussion, Beautiful Boy, Lone Survivor, Collateral Beauty, Skyscraper, Furious 7, The Way Back; in popular TV-Shows such as The Vampire Diaries, Containment, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen Degeneres Show and So You Think You Can Dance.
