Coming from a musical background (he is Benjamin Britten’s godson), Martin read drama at Manchester University. Fortunately for the acting profession, he decided to concentrate his energies on writing music. Since scoring his first TV drama, Eureka Street, in 2002, he has won 2 BAFTAs & 5 Ivor Novello Awards, and gone on to write music for many of the most interesting series of recent years, including the BBC and Weinstein Company’s War and Peace, Hugo Blick’s Black Earth Rising, Peaky Blinders and Black Mirror. Martin is currently scoring season 4 of the Leftbank Pictures/Netflix series, The Crown.
Martin’s film credits include the Weinstein Company’s Woman In Gold (scored with Hans Zimmer), starring Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren.
