Oliver Davis

Nationality: British

Oliver studied under Justin Connolly at the Royal Academy of Music graduating in 1994. He has since composed and produced numerous albums, soundtracks, concertos and television scores working with all the major London orchestras.

Oliver’s interest in ballet has led to a collaboration with choreographer Erico Montes. His work ‘Within the Hours’ was performed by the Royal Ballet, reviewed by Debra Craine in The Times as “beautiful new music by Oliver Davis”. Recent works include the music to Chris Shepherd’s film ‘The Ringer’ for Canal Plus and working with Oscar nominated director Sylvain Chomet on the opening ‘couch gag’ sequence for The Simpsons – reaching over 6 million views on YouTube.

In 2013 Oliver composed ‘Flight – Concerto for Violin and Strings’ which was premiered at St Martin in the Fields by Kerenza Peacock and the Trafalgar Ensemble. He then went on to compose a further set of pieces for violin and orchestra resulting in the album ‘Flight’ recorded by the LSO in early 2014. One movement of ‘Flight’ has already been choreographed at the recent Royal Ballet Draft Works. He is regularly commissioned to write solo piano repertoire for pianists such as Sam Haywood and Virginia Black; his piano music was also chosen for the TV promo for Sky ‘Go’.

Soundtracks include 12 television series, 15 short films, 2 Playhouse films for Sky Arts – ‘City Hall’ (Dir Richard Loncraine) and ‘Nelly & Melba’ (Dir Christine Gernon) – and feature film Seaview Knights. Works for stage encompass ‘TV22′ with words by Paul Gambaccini and ‘Banksters’ currently in pre-production with words by Penguin author Felix Riley. Due for release is ‘Song for Malala’ with words by Sandi Toksvig.

Oliver’s studios are based in the heart of Soho where he has been writing and recording since 1998.
