I’ve composed the music for more than a hundred television productions across all programming genres, from BAFTA and Emmy award-winning dramas and documentaries to light entertainment and commercials.
Here’s some of my work
News and other stuff

Ross Kemp’s critically acclaimed The Fight Against Isis (with music by me) aired recently. If you haven’t seen it, please watch it. It’s an incredibly powerful film.
Earlier in the year, I worked on Jo Brand’s Hell of a Walk for BBC1, and, over the past few months I’ve released two new library music albums for EMI – Wonderfully Whimsical (KPM) and Simple & Positive : Small Ensemble (Primary). I was also one of the composers of Extreme Music’s Ambient Drama 2 that’s just been released.
Series 1 of Landscape Artist of the Year pulled in the highest ever viewing figures for Sky Arts. It was a wonderful show and I loved working on it. New series of both Landscape and Portrait Artist of the Year will be broadcast later in the year.
Tax Dodgers has now been completed and should air on Channel 4 later in the year. Sky 1’s latest series of Ross Kemp: Extreme World has just finished airing as has Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year. Three new library albums – Keep It Simple Vol 1 and Vol 2; a double album for Imagem, West One’s double album Human Drama and Emotion A and B, and European Cinema; an Extreme Music compilation album that I wrote a couple of tracks for – have recently been released. Oh, and I’ve just signed a publishing deal with Accorder Music. Exciting times.
If you’re a fan of jogging, ghosts, disused train tracks and prams filled with coal (and, let’s face it, who isn’t!) then Line Signal, a short film that I scored a couple of months ago, should be right up your alley.

Louis Theroux’s LA Stories (“a masterclass in TV journalism.” – The Observer) is currently airing on BBC2; series 3 of Ross Kemp: Extreme World with its “soundtrack growling with Inception levels of portent” (The Independent) is going down a storm on Sky 1 and the latest series of Restoration Man is currently being shown on Channel 4. Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year was a huge success, garnering the channel its highest ever viewing figures. A spin-off programme is currently in production.

I’ve recently completed BBC4’s three-parter Agony and Ecstasy: A Year with English National Ballet – “Damn good television…gripping stuff” (The Times), “Terrific…expert storytelling…best programme of the week” (The Sunday Times), “A fascinating documentary…extraordinary” (The Guardian), Caroline Quentin: A Passage Through India for ITV1 and Lily Allen: From Riches to Rags for Channel 4.
