John Lunn: Bio

John Lunn's music possesses a wonderfully unique voice that spans a wide spectrum of musical styles. Classically trained, yet contemporary in attitude, he combines a highly intelligent and sensitive approach with a sound that always hits at the emotional heart of a piece. His scores, which match the highest production values with a continual desire to discover new colours and sounds, are continuously in high demand. He is probably best known for scoring the hugely successful flagship ITV/NBC/PBS/Carnival Films drama, Downton Abbey, for which he has received two Primetime Emmy Awards, in 2012 and 2013 and a further nomination in 2014.

John's recent work includes ITV/PBS/Lovely Day's adaption of The Grantchester Mysteries by author James Runcie, Red Planet's epic WW1 drama The Passing Bells, the feature film Electricity starring Agyness Deyn, just released in the UK; Burton And Taylor (starring Dominic West and Helena Bonham-Carter), Shetland, The White Queen (based on the bestselling novel by Phillipa Gregory), for which he also received a Primetime Emmy nomination in 2014, and the reimagining of Hitchcock's classic The Lady Vanishes, all for the BBC.

He is currently scoring The Last Kingdom, an adaptation of Bernard Cornwell's best selling "The Saxon Stories" for BBC/BBC America. 2015 will also see him working on Downton Abbey series 6, and a further series of Grantchester.

He has received critical acclaim for three adaptations of Charles Dickens classics: the BBC/Masterpiece centenary adaptation of The Mystery Of Edwin Drood, for which he was nominated for an Ivor Novello Award (2013), a 14-part re-imagining of Little Dorrit(2008), which garnered both a BAFTA nomination and his first Primetime Emmy nomination, and Bleak House (2006) , for which he received RTS Best Score and Best Title nominations.    - IMDb Mini Biography By: Krakower Poling PR
