June 2019
 
I first started working to picture composing for TV commercials in the early 90’s. Despite being occupied by other ventures in the music industry over the years I have always kept on writing to develope my own individual style. While I do score the odd commercial (currently co-songwriter on this years Birdseye world wide campaign) I am keen to move closer into film and TV Drama.
 
I have a large catalogue of my own unpublished compositions. Of the underscore titles I have written over the years I have submitted only a few to music libraries, keeping most of it unpublished to be used as possible starter ideas on future film projects. I am not such a fan of library music as its overuse these days is diminishing the quality and production value of visual content.
 
I am passionate about film because it is the ultimate medium for sharing and celebrating human interaction. 
 
When I watch a movie or TV drama myself, if I'm distracted by the score for whatever reason, I loose interest in the film. Discerning composers know this! All that interests me is to come up with an inspired score, in tow with what the director has envisaged in his minds eye, that ultimately helps to enhance the message of the storyline. This could be underpinned by anything from the most subtle sub harmonic underscore, through to a full drawn out symphonic theme for example.
 
As much as I have been fortunate enough to work on diverse advertising projects in the past with all manor of briefs! I know that I have a lot more to offer as a bespoke composer for feature film and TV drama.

If I was a religious man it would be my infinite love of the rivers, mountains and ever changing skies that kindle the romantic dreams of my humanist nature... just saying!
