avatars-000014444514-simve3-t200x200Multi-award winning composer Jamie Salisbury writes and produces music for film, TV, games, trailers, contemporary dance, theatre, album projects and concert performance from his London studio. Experienced and multi-skilled across many genres, he’s as comfortable working with live musicians and symphony orchestras as he is with synths and samples.

His most recent projects include “Up All Night” (starring David Mitchell, Kevin Eldon and Tyger Drew-Honey), “Sugar Free Farm” (ITV1) and Microsoft’s X-Box Live game “Secrets and Treasure: The Lost Cities”.

Along with the late Simon D’Souza he was awarded “Best Music” in the Adventure Gamers Awards 2014 for their score to “The Journey Down 2″.

His work also features heavily on recent production music albums including The Making of Legends (Immediate Music), Smoulder, Land of Adventures (Twisted Jukebox),  Action/Thriller 6, US Drama, Cinematic Pop/Rock, Magic & Mystery, Fantasy & Adventure, Trailudes (Imagem), Promos and Trailers: Back Ends and Epic World Trailers (EMI Production Music).

2014 also saw him provide music for Gaijin Games War Thunder: Japanese Air Force trailer.

Jamie composed the world’s first orchestral score for an eBook novel in 2011. Recorded with a 72-piece orchestra in Prague it was mixed by the Grammy award winning Steve Price (The Blue Planet, Adele) and mastered at Abbey Road Studios. The soundtrack album: Endworlds: Echoes of Worlds Past is available via iTunes.

He has worked with some of the UK’s top session musicians and orchestras, including The BBC Concert Orchestra, The English Session Orchestra and the London Community Gospel Choir, as well as regular sessions in Europe with the Hungarian Studio Orchestra and the Prague Philharmonic.

Jamie holds a Masters degree in Composition for Film and Television from London College of Music and a BA (Hons) in 20th Century Music Studies from the University of Sussex, England. He was awarded the LCMM Sony Award for his soundtrack to the animation Scoops, performed live in concert by the BBC Concert Orchestra.

As a pianist and keyboard player, Jamie has played jazz at Ronnie Scott’s, pop music at Shepherds Bush Empire and performed with artists including Sir Paul McCartney. He has composed, co-written, arranged and produced for several pop albums.

I bumped into Jamie's work while skimming through Soundcloud and it was one of those "best find's - ever!" moments. I was looking for a composer who had an ear for melody. Someone who could write interesting and dynamic pieces of music that you could actually sing! Jamie is a joy to work with. He just gets it and delivers - every time. Jamie's work is incredibly well produced and executed and he always surprises with something extra. A bit of magic that makes the whole project come to life. I’m really looking forward to the next project we do together.

I approached Jamie when we found it very difficult to capture the right tone for some more thoughtful, soulful scenes in our film, Our Lady Of Lourdes. A key moment, that reveals the heart of the whole story, needed music with a sensitive touch, and firm grasp of the themes. Jamie was able to convey, with his arrangement, what the lead character struggled to express himself. His work ultimately helped to define the humanity of the film.

When I was looking for a composer for Shhh!, Jamie immediately stood out from the rest by his friendly, approachable and professional manner, not to mention the quality of his work. During the project I absolutely felt certain that I had made the right choice. Jamie proved to be a consistent, very hard working individual, who was 110% committed to the project. Working with Jamie was a great pleasure; he would make a strong collaborative partner for any project, as he is a true creative perfectionist at heart. I very much look forward to working together again in the future.

Jamie Salisbury is a disgustingly, horribly, perversely, indubitably talented man.
I hate him. That is all.
