Whatever your project or medium music is absolutely key to telling your story or selling your brand and when it is often the last piece in the production puzzle you need a reliable source of inspiration and an experienced composer who can deliver on time and on budget.

You, Me & The Apocalypse
TV DRAMA COMMISSION

Music Commission Stories - There Ain't Nothin' Like A Deadline
Colin was once called on a Friday afternoon by an advertising company looking for music for a £6M ad campaign for 888 Poker.
Having already been to all the major production music libraries and a long list of London's finest composers without success, they asked if he had anything similar to a commercial track which they had been unable to clear for copyright. So he trawled through his entire catalogue but couldn't really find anything close enough to the piece, which featured an exotic combination of instruments.
So he offered to write something that afternoon and duly delivered a demo within the hour which was well-received by all the executives. The package of various edits was completed and delivered over the weekend and went to air, on schedule, on the Monday.
TRACK REPLACEMENT FOR INTERNATIONAL TV DRAMAS
The track "I Remember When" was composed, arranged, recorded with live flugel horn and delivered in around 12 hours. It was a last minute replacement track for the international version of the network ITV drama 'Torn' and Colin has since become a 'go to' composer in this field, having worked on music for Foyle's War (ITV), You Me & The Apocalypse (Sky One/NBC), The Little House (ITV), The Last Enemy (ITV), The Reckoning (ITV), Undeniable (ITV) and Good Karma Hospital (ITV).
