News and Updates
A bunch of projects that I worked on last year have been coming out in recent months. Make sure to follow me on Instagram for updates about all the projects I'm on! Shazam! Fury of the Gods was released on March 17. I conducted and was lead orchestrator for Chris Beck's epic score. It was a lot of music in a short amount of time but I am lucky to have some friends who also orchestrate to help out. Thanks to the crew at Chris's…
2023 already has plenty going on! On January 27th and 28th, Ne-Yo will be performing a show with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center. I was happy to be brought on as lead arranger for this show, continuing a long run of collaborations with the NSO at the Kennedy Center (it's been almost ten years now since the Nas Illmatic show!) There's plenty going on in the scoring world as well. We have been recording Chris Beck's score to the third Ant-Man movie…
Happy Halloween! Guillermo del Toro's Cabinet of Curiosities recently released on Netflix. This horror anthology features eight episodes written and directed by del Toro or other collaborators, and each was scored by a unique composer as well. I was happy to be asked to score the first episode, "Lot 36," and had some fun returning to the horror genre with del Toro – one of our earliest projects together was for some additional music on Crimson Peak. This episode is all about a mystery…
Okay, I'm quite pleased about this one. A little while back I was contacted by Peter Morris, Assosciate Professor and Head of Ensembles at the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University, my old stomping grounds. Peter has put together a number of programs of live-to-picture scores, and he was wondering if we might create some kind of suite from Maya and the Three to include on the program of this year's concert: FilmHarmonic 2022. I was happy to go along, and so that kicked off a series…
Besides the usual film and television work, I've also had a number of arranging projects come my way this year. A number of them have been for my friend Jules Buckley. The first was a concert in June with the BBC Symphony Orchestra titled "Beyond the Bricks of Brum," celebrating the city of Birmingham. I arranged a few tunes for SANITY and also composed a piece to play with a poem by Casey Bailey. The BBC Symphony Orchestra: Beyond the Bricks of Brum Then a…

THE EXPENSIVE TRAIN SET
The new CD from the Tim Davies Big Band
Grammy-nominated composer, arranger, drummer and band leader Tim Davies formed his first big band in 1998 in Melbourne, Australia. Its run was cut short by Tim's move to Los Angeles, but since 2000, Davies has released two recordings with his topflight LA band of seasoned session and touring players.
For The Expensive Train Set, Davies comes full-circle as he resurrects the Melbourne group and features both bands on four tunes each, with one new composition written for the two bands performing together. Davies creates arrangements grounded in the traditional, while adding elements from many influences to create a sound that is wide-ranging and cinematic a sure consequence of his award winning career as a major orchestrator for film, TV and events.
