John Rea

After following an early career sessioning and arranging for Dave Stewart’s Anxious Records, John has developed a career as a composer for film, television, theatre, and concert platform. He is also a sought after arranger, has worked with the likes of The Manic Street Preachers, and conducted for the legendary John Cale of The Velvet Underground. John’s unique approach has earned him great acclaim in recent years, including two BAFTA Awards for Best Music; finalist in the London International Advertising Awards; and a 'STEMRA Best Production' Award for his album 'Art Music and the Minimal'. John's sensitivity to storytelling is evident in all facets of his music, from structure, to orchestration; all bring a sensitivity to context, whether in the more traditional 'classical' style, or the contemporary, and in the original way he often blends the techniques, and sounds of different traditions.
