Brad Horizon - 'You're A Winner'
Get ready for some pure 80's musical cheese from my new alter ego. 'Brad Horizon'. I had far too much fun making this song, which forms part of my original soundtrack for the comedy/horror feature film 'When The Screaming Starts'.
The brief was to create a song that you might find on the soundtrack for Rocky. Definitely one to file under 'guilty pleasures'.
This song is available for use. Get in touch for cutdowns, edits and/or re-versioning to suit your film.
'Risk Agents - Irreplaceable'
A recent co-write with Pasha Tseitlin of Risk Agents, ‘Irreplaceable’ is a song that takes inspiration from two of my biggest 80’s musical heroes. Depeche Mode, and Queen (listen out for the background vocals).
The result is an epic song with a cinematic quality that’s perfect for sync. Get in touch for cutdowns, edits and/or re-versioning to suit your film.
'A recent pitch'
This recent pitch for a Saudi company called for a Neo-Classical sound. Sadly this one didn't progress past the pitch stage but I am still very proud of the work.
Keywords from the brief:
Innovation, community, playful, collaboration, family, trust, human, inspirational, emotional.
Throughout each piece, a memorable mnemonic is also present forming the basis for a toolkit of sounds to build an audio signature for the brand. Which is your favourite? Let me know.
All of these tracks are available for use and can be re-versioned / re-mixed to suit your needs.
TSB - 'Life Made More'
This charming and funny spot for TSB, staring David Schwimmer, called for a score that was subtle enough to let the dialogue lead, but playful enough to accent the humour. We composed a number of versions before we landed on the perfect fit. In the end, some 60’s inspired jazz/country guitar picking did the trick. Sometimes less is more when it comes to the right music.
The musical mnemonic you hear at the end of this ad will be the sound of TSB branding going forward.
A Born Music in collaboration with Mushka.

Danny Keane - 'Afro Cello'
I am super excited to share with you my latest rework of a track called 'Afro Cello' by the incredible Danny Keane. Perfect for sync use in your productions.
Danny is one of the UK's finest jazz musicians, with his debut album, 'Roamin' being heralded as 'Jazz Album of the month' in the prestigious MOJO magazine.
This film, for St Lukes London, was a pure joy to be involved in. It's not often a composer gets to be on camera playing the guitar for a campaign. And what company I have in this video. From A-list film stars to NHS heroes. All giving their time to support the NHS through the 1st big UK lockdown of Covid 19.
'Till The Stars Let Go'
