Neo-classical composer Amelia Warner is known for her work on ‘Mary Shelley,’ ‘Wild Mountain Thyme,’ ‘Mr. Malcom’s List,’ and the upcoming Jerry Bruckheimer produced film ‘Young Woman and the Sea,’ starring Daisy Ridley.

Her stunning orchestral scores infused with electronic elements have led to several awards, including Breakthrough Composer of The Year’ at the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA) Awards, and nominations in the ‘Discovery of the Year’ category at the World Soundtrack Awards, a Hollywood Music in Media Award, and recognition as a nominee for the ASCAP Composers’ Choice Awards.

In 2018 she scored the Irish-American film ‘Mary Shelley’, directed by Haifaa al-Mansour and starring Elle Fanning. For this score Warner created “otherworldly music for an orchestra haunted by ethereal female vocals.”

Warner scored John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Wild Mountain Thyme,’ which also featured an original song “I’ll Be Singing” co-written by Warner and Shanley and performed by Sinead O’Connor.

In 2022, she wrote a contemporary classical score for the period romantic comedy ‘Mr. Malcolm’s List’, in which her love theme was used to choreograph and film a grandiose ballroom scene in the film.

Growing up in west London’s Notting Hill, Amelia loved to play piano in her family home. Although resisting traditional classical training, she would constantly invent melodies, and her first proper composition, at 15, was for a school soap-opera project. It would be many years before anyone heard Amelia’s evocative instrumental compositions. Her first career was as an actress, following in her mother Annette Ekblom’s footsteps. She knew she wanted to be part of the filmmaking and storytelling process, but quickly realized she was on the wrong side of it.

Her debut major scoring project was the British short film ‘Mam’ which won several awards on the film-festival circuit and led to her first feature-film composition, for 2016’s ‘Mum’s List’, starring Rafe Spall and Emilia Fox.

Warner has also released three solo classical albums to date—the most recent EP ‘Haven,’ was released in summer 2020. The home-inspired ‘Haven’ was coincidentally released at a time when home was the epicentre for people thrown into months of lockdown in the midst of the global pandemic. Her previous solo EP ‘Visitors’ (2017) followed her debut EP ‘Arms’ (2015). Warner’s three EP releases have all reached #1 on the iTunes classical album charts.
