Thrilled to have written music for H&M’s Christmas Broadcast TV spots “Come Together” directed by Wes Anderson (The Grand Budapest Hotel). The 60, 30, 15 and 10 second films star Oscar winning Adrian Brody and were recorded with members of the Tenabre Choir conducted by Nigel Short. The agency was Adam & Eve / DDB and the music agency was Leland Music. View the short on H&M’s twitter page here.
I had immense pleasure writing the score for Smith & Foulkes’ animated app Radio Jones and his Robot Dad. All created from live instruments dotting around my studio, including a piano which hadn’t been tuned for a decade that had just been delivered! Thanks to the brilliant Siren Music and Nexus Productions… this is amongst many award winning animated collaborations with this brilliant team including BBC One Christmas’ “Spout Boy”, The Grand National’s “The Outsider” and Channel 4’s “Stand Up To Cancer”.

Very pleased to have collaborated again with Grammy winning Clean Bandit for the latest M&S Food Christmas films. Recorded with the London Metropolitan Orchestra at Mark Knopfler’s British Grove Studio the track is an orchestral remix of their number one song Rather Be. Made with agency RKCH/Y&R who I’ve collaborated with on numerous projects in the past including BBC ONE Christmas “Sprout Boy” films in 2015.

I’ve been working on a number of arrangements for Tesco’s Christmas television advertising campaign which launched yesterday, produced by the brilliant Wieden + Kennedy (who I previously collaborated with for the multi award winning Lurpak “The Cook”). The launch film consists of a brass band arrangement of Irene Cara’s “What A Feeling” which I arranged for 20 piece brass band (consisting of the London Metropolitan Orchestra), which was recorded in London’s Abbey Road Studio 2.
More films from the campaign will be released in the coming weeks.
