About the Artist

Krull, Lord Of The Rings, Batman Begins, Serenity, Crash.... James Horner, Howard Shore, Hans Zimmer, David Newman, Mark Isham & John Williams.... Just a handful of films and their composers whom have been a great inspiration and influence on my life as a composer.

I used to play lead guitar in a rock band but we weren't progressing quick enough so, in 2007, after graduating from Napier University with a degree in Music, I decided to go solo and write music for films. Best decision I have ever made!

I now write in my own home grown studio, working long hours with nothing but me, my guitar, some paper and a computer. Heaven! Along the way, I've composed music for TV commercials, documentaries, corporate videos & short films. But of all the different forms of media I write for, feature films has to be my favourite. I'm a massive fan of films and music, so it's the perfect combination for me. I believe that music has the power to make an average film good, a good film great and a great film even greater!

You know that tingling down the spine feeling you sometimes get when you watch a movie or something on television? Whenever possible, I always try to create that feeling when writing to picture. Check my music out!

Me & My Music:

When I compose music to picture, my first thoughts are usually; what style and what instruments will compliment the picture best. The next step is to grab a coffee and start writing themes & melodies, which is the foundation of any music. I usually like to "hear" the melody, rather than play it, as your fingers can fall into patterns, or you can be limited to your technical ability on an instrument. So I try to hear what it would sound like in my head, then write it out. The rest is easy, I just write till I finish it.
