Hamish Brown: Music

Hello, I’m Hamish Brown. I’m a versatile and experienced producer, composer, musician and mix engineer. I regularly collaborate with directors, choreographers, agencies and other musicians in helping them them get the best results from their project. To hear some examples, visit Soundcloud.

I’ve had music placed everywhere from Hollywood films, cinema ads, live dance, award-winning theatre shows, zero-budget passion pieces and most places in between. I’m currently working on Lost Treasure, a major commission by Glasgow Short Film Festival to score (alongside vocalist Drew Wright) a new edit of footage shot in 1950s and left unfinished. This is currently screening at festivals UK-wide as part of BFI Cinescore Live.

Other recent projects include an advert for London-based crowdfunding journalism platform Byline Media, music supervision on the award-winning Whatever Gets You Through The Night project and producing singer-songwriters Seafieldroad and Jennifer Ewan.

Artists I’ve worked with include RM Hubbert, Rachel Sermanni, Withered Hand, Meursault (Supermoon), Eugene Kelly, Seafieldroad, Cora Bissett, David Greig and the Jennifer Ewan. I served my apprenticeship in the band Swimmer One.

I’ve given talks at Edinburgh Science Festival, Social Media Week and other events. I also contribute journalism to various outlets and have had spells on staff at two national newspapers. I live in the coastal town on Musselburgh, just outside Edinburgh, in Scotland with my young family.
