About Roddy Hart
As a solo musician and alongside his band The Lonesome Fire, Glasgow’s Roddy Hart has long been a part of the Scottish music scene. He has worked with Coldplay/Morrissey producer Danton Supple and Mogwai/Arab Strap’s Paul Savage. In 2014 he was nominated for the Scottish Album Of The Year Award, which was followed by a 6-night residency performing on CBS’ The Late Late Show in the USA. Hart acted as Associate Musical Director on the motion picture musical Sunshine On Leith, and also works as a broadcaster, presenting The Roddy Hart Show and The Quay Sessions for BBC Radio Scotland every week. His most recent record “Swithering” was released late 2016.
Most prominently, Hart now works alongside Tommy Reilly as a Film and TV composing partnership. The original score, lyrics and music for their first movie – the musical “Anna and The Apocalypse” – combined a love of film with their diverse sonic background. It was the first acquisition for MGM’s newly reinstated – and legendary – Orion Pictures, and was released worldwide late 2018. Since then they have been working on the songs and score for Steven Spielberg's legendary "Animaniacs" (now in its second season), as well as scoring and arranging the music for Michael Caton-Jones' "Our Ladies" (due for release in 2021 via Sony International). Most recently they composed a song for the upcoming Amazon TV series "Wheel Of Time". They are currently working on a stage musical with the National Theatre of Scotland, alongside Cora Bissett and Douglas Maxwell.
