About Tommy Reilly
Hailing from Torrance, Tommy Reilly has released 3 LPs and performed across the UK, Europe and the US. He first rose to prominence after winning the Channel 4 music competition ‘Orange Unsigned Act’. His debut album ‘Words On The Floor’ was released by A&M/Polydor records soon after, with Reilly's first single ‘Gimme A Call’ reaching number 14 in the UK Singles Chart. He has worked with producers such as Bernard Butler (Duffy/Courteeners) and Paul Savage (Arab Strap/Mogwai) and collaborated with a diverse range of artists as a songwriter. Reilly is currently published by BMG, has a Masters in Sound For The Moving Image from Glasgow School of Art, and received a Scottish Bafta New Talent nomination for his composition work in 2016.
Most prominently, Reilly now works alongside Roddy Hart 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.
