Ivor Novello Winner 2015 and BAFTA nominated composer Natalie Holt has created dramatic original scores for feature films, television drama, and narrative-driven entertainment. Her latest projects include the final series of BBC1 hit drama Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh. Holt’s music can also be heard alongside Hans Zimmer’s in the Weinstein company film Woman in Gold, and family smash hit from the producers of Harry Potter; Paddington.
Natalie trained in composing at the National Film and Television School after studying violin at the Royal Academy of Music. Her diverse repertoire ranges from epic orchestral scores recorded with 80-piece choirs to intimate, small ensembles and hybrid electronic scores featuring an eclectic mix of live solo instruments. To create unique sounds for each project, she draws from her collection of instruments and plays on most of her scores.
She has recently completed the score for Mammoth Screen’s upcoming series Victoria with Martin Phipps as part of Mearl music, and is currently working on Adrian Shergold’s latest drama for BBC1 My Mother And Other Strangers.
Holt is based in London, the heart of Europe’s post-production community, recording with A-list orchestras at major studios including Abbey Road Studios and Air Studios, and works with filmmakers in Los Angeles, London and commercial clients worldwide.
