Richard Mead

I am an award winning composer and producer. I write music for documentaries, tv shows, adverts, and short films; as well as being a regular writer for EMI Production Music.

I am a multi-instrumentalist with a focus on the guitar and other related string instruments, always preferring to record live instrumentation where possible, whilst still having a plethora of musical gadgetry. I work with some amazing session musicians as well as other composers and sound engineers in order to achieve the best possible sound.

I have worked on documentaries (for the BBC, ITV and Channel 4), title sequences and numerous library albums. My music has appeared on film trailers, international advertising campaigns and a whole host of other programmes broadcast throughout the world.

In 2008 I won the Channel 4 New Talent Award for Production Music.
If you have an interesting project I would love to hear from you – I’m always happy to provide you with a sample track.
