Simon Webster is an award winning composer best known for his solo piano and contemporary classical crossover music. He has composed for hundreds of film and commercial projects and has works published by EMI, Sony, BMG Chrysalis and Cutting Edge Film Scores amongst many others.
To date, Simon has composed music for a wide range of projects, most notably in media, where he has contributed to advertising campaigns for Peroni Nastro Azzurro, Lexus, The Weinstein Company, BBC, McCann, The Bank, Toyota, Indiana Production Company and Miller Brands to name a few.
In late 2009, Simon released his debut solo EP, a collection of contemporary classical crossover compositions, met with praise by journalists and critics worldwide.
In mid 2010, he was chosen by critically acclaimed Hollywood Film Director Gabriele Muccino (The Pursuit of Happyness, Seven Pounds with Will Smith) as up and coming film composing talent and commissioned to compose the music for the Peroni Nastro Azzurro advertising campaign.
In mid 2013, Simon was chosen to compose the music for the film A Better Tomorrow sponsored by Lexus and produced by The Weinstein Company. The film was introduced at Cannes by a panel of established Hollywood filmmakers, including Tim Burton and Harvey Weinstein.
Simon’s music has a cinematic soundscape to it, in all its rich textures and layers. It doesn’t follow fashion, genre or style, yet it has the intrinsic capacity to move the listener’s mood.
