Rob Lane


One of the most versatile and in demand composers working today, Rob has won no less than six major awards for his work and received nominations for a further eight. Three Ivor Novellos, a BAFTA and two RTS Awards have confirmed his ability to write distinctive music for any genre, whether psychological thriller or quirky comedy, action-adventure or political docu-drama.

One of the most versatile and in demand composers working today, Rob has won no less than six major awards for his work and received nominations for a further eight. Three Ivor Novellos, a BAFTA and two RTS Awards have confirmed his ability to write distinctive music for any genre, whether psychological thriller or quirky comedy, action-adventure or political docu-drama. Equally at home writing for orchestra or working with samples, his aim is always to create boldly cinematic music that intimately supports and enhances the drama on-screen. Rob’s recent film credits include the Warner Bros comedy, Mrs Ratcliffe's Revolution, directed by Bille Eltringham; The Lives of the Saints, directed by Rankin and Chris Cottam, the South African thriller Red Dust, starring Hilary Swank, and two documentary features: Nick Broomfield’s Aileen: The Life & Death of a Serial Killer and Game Over: Kasparov & The Machine directed by Vikram Jayanti. He also scored Deathwatch, the horror film starring Jamie Bell and The Escapist for Sky Pictures, directed by Gillies MacKinnon and The Young Poisoner's Handbook for British Screen. In autumn 2007, Rob travelled to LA to score HBO mini-series John Adams, which charts the life of the second President of the United States during the American War Of Independence.

Paul Giamatti takes the title role and the project is co-produced by Tom Hanks and Playtone Pictures. The series has just aired in the US to great ratings and much critical acclaim. The relationship with HBO has begun with Elizabeth I, starring Helen Mirren and Jeremy Irons, for which Rob's score received a 2006 BAFTA, RTS Award and Ivor Novello Award, and been cemented with an Emmy nominated score for Longford, written by Peter Morgan and starring Jim Broadbent and Samantha Morton. In 2007 Rob also received both BAFTA and RTS nominations for his work on the BBC's much praised Jane Eyre, directed by Susanna White and starring Ruth Wilson and Toby Stephens. Other recent work includes Stuart, A Life Backwards, a joint BBC and HBO one off drama by Sam Mendes' Neal Street Productions; Marie Lloyd, the BBC biopic of the legendary British music hall entertainer; the political thriller series Whistleblower for Carnival Films, and the Mark Haddon scripted Coming Down The Mountain for Tiger Aspect. Earlier major credits include the BBC's Blackpool for which Rob won the 2005 Ivor Novello Award; the BBC2 series The Long Firm and To The Ends Of The Earth, Charles II and The Lost World (both of which received Emmy nominations for the music); and Jimmy McGovern's The Street for BBC1. Rob recently scored Gun Rush for ITV, directed by Richard Clark and starring Timothy Spall, and has just completed scoring Tess Of The D'Urbervilles for the BBC, and Merlin for Shine Ltd/BBC Wales.

He is just about to begin scoring the feature The Damned United for Left Bank Pictures, and The 39 Steps for the BBC, a one-off drama based on the classic novel by John Buchan. Read more on Last.fm.
