"Hi, I'm James...
Your film is my canvas for musical storytelling. Let's create something special.
Since my early days in high school, composing for film has been my passion. Today I am a full time freelance composer and graduate of Leeds Conservatoire with first class honours in Film Music.
My music is about emotion, character and immersion. I am an orchestral composer at heart and I love to carve memorable melodies out for strong harmonic structures. Synthesisers and found sounds are not uncommon in my music either, as I like to create a unique soundscape for each project."
James is part of the Engrave Production Music label and has also gone onto work as a media composer in film, documentary & series' such as 'Creatures' (2021), 'Memories Are Forever' (2022) and was asked to compose music for 2 of the 'Doctor Who; Lockdown!' (2020) online specials written by Steven Moffat. James has also provided additional work in song arrangement and orchestration, most recently arranging strings for Tim Gallagher's 'Stripped' album in 2020.
