Simon Russell is an EMMY Award winning freelance composer from the UK, composing music in a diverse range of styles for both Film and TV productions. I’m a self taught musician/composer living in London. As a child, I was very keen to experiment with sound - modifying the family piano, removing the frets from my first bass guitar and, much to my parents annoyance, taking all our clocks apart to see what made them tick.
I play a wide range of instruments but my favourite is the ukulele. I’ve composed for many award winning programmes including Afghan Star (2 Sundance awards, Grierson award) and Baroque (RTS award).
