A highly experienced composer, performer and producer, Ed was born in Hampton in 1968. He became a chorister at Hampton Court Palace at six and was later appointed head chorister at Windsor Castle where he remained until the age of thirteen. He went on to win a music scholarship to Charterhouse School and subsequently a double music scholarship (violin & piano) to the Royal College of Music, gaining a first class performers degree as well as a Countess of Munster Scholarship to study in New York & Japan. At 18, Ed became the youngest player in the London Philharmonic Orchestra and went on to play with the London Symphony Orchestra, BBC Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Philharmonia & the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields. Whilst performing with these world-class orchestras, Ed also worked as a session musician and after playing on the scores to Basic Instinct & The English Patient, he realised he wanted a change in direction; he wanted to write music to picture. This new journey started by orchestrating for several Hollywood composers on films such as Desperate Measures, Dark City, Merlin & Dangerous Beauty as well as acting as musical director for artists such as Madonna, Puff Daddy and George Martin. Since then Ed has gone on to write music for many notable film and television dramas (see credits) and is now one of the most versatile composers in this country, equally at home with contemporary, symphonic, and intimate scores.

Some of his best work has combined all these elements, creating a thrilling and uniquely dramatic style. Ed wrote a dark, contemporary and epic score to the feature Revelation for Romulus Films and following on from this, is being talked about as one of the most innovative and influential composers of his generation. He has recently finished writing the scores to The Dark for Impact Pictures/Universal/Constantin and True North for Ariel and BBC Films. He is currently scoring The Waiting Room for Bright Pictures starring Anne Marie Duff, and Diary Of A Nobody, written by Andrew Davies for Clerkenwell Films/BBC and starring Hugh Bonneville. Ed recently scored Mistresses for Ecosse Films, and Ashes to Ashes, the highly anticipated follow up series to the wildly successful BBC series, Life on Mars for which Ed also scored and wrote the title music for both series 1 and 2. Ed is close to completing the score for Survivors, a remake of the 70's BBC drama which focuses on the world in the aftermath of a devastating virus which wipes out most of the world's population.

He is also currently scoring Yellow Stone for BBC2, a series which explores the major ecosystems in the Yellow Stone National Park. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
