I recently created a full album worth of film/tv drama music for Shutterstock Music. The client wanted dramatic production music film scores, dramatic underscores and action/suspense music. It was a great project to be involved with and it allowed for a lot of live musicianship on the tracks. In particular live strings (played by Joy Becker…… Continue reading Film TV Drama Music
I’ve just uploaded a new showreel for 2017. Feel free to take a look. It includes some of the music placement highlights over the past year including Wimbledon, Inside the NFL, Countryfile and Bargain Hunt. Enjoy and please feel free to get in touch.

I’ve just got my hands on a few pictures of the studio space I work from. As a composer I’m very keen to get as much soul and energy through live performance where possible. I believe that no matter how much money is spent on samples/virtual instruments (of which I have many incidentally if budgets are tight!) nothing… Continue reading Studio Pictures
I recently borrowed a Suzuki Q-Chord. Never heard of it before but I was a assured it was instant Children’s TV and being a Children’s TV Composer it made sense to try it out! I spent the next couple of hours in my own little autoharp world. It pretty easy to use, although you have… Continue reading Suzuki Q-Chord = Hours of Fun
I’m a massive fan of Danny Elfman. In my humble opinion, the Edward Scissorhands soundtrack is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever! I really enjoyed Corpse Bride and I felt the urge to do a reworking of the opening credits sequence. In the original, Danny Elfman makes a strong musical reference to… Continue reading Corpse Bride Opening Credits Music

And… Continue reading New Production Music

It features, amongst other things, my work on Will Power and for clients such as Nintendo/Square Enix, Dare2B/Maker and MediaCityUK/University of Salford. Please feel free to have a watch… If you like what you see/hear,… Continue reading New Showreel!
In the quest to finally get my website done and dusted, I’ve been accumulating some testimonials from people I’ve worked with in the past. Here’s a few that have come through so far. Thank you for all your kind words!! (by the way you can click on the production company logo to go through to… Continue reading Some Kind Words…
I’ve just added a few music excerpts from ‘Will Power’, the drama/comedy film I composed the film score for. Please feel free to have a listen and comment! I went to the long awaited film premiere a couple of weeks ago at the Trafford Centre Odeon in Manchester. It was a real buzz to see and… Continue reading Will Power – Premiere and Score Excerpts
