Julian Blackmore

Music Coach & Tutor

I'm a British composer, producer & sound designer based in New York City, where I create music & audio for a whole host of projects around the globe, including theatre, film, television, and digital media.

Hello! This is my story.

My music has been performed at Lincoln Center (NYC); Merkin Concert Hall (NYC); 54 Below (NYC); Barrington Stages (MA), St George’s Hall (Bradford) and used in theatre and media productions around the globe, including India, Hong Kong, South Africa, Australia and Dubai. 
Before relocating to New York I toured internationally with top UK tribute band Abba Forever, and with 70s crooners Smokie. I played keyboards, sang, and hosted, for the world famous Cafe Wha? Band in the legendary Greenwich Village venue for seven years, before the pandemic struck and forced me to put my skinny jeans into storage. 
My dog, Parsley, tends to ghostwrite a lot of my music, and could well gatecrash a lesson or two.

Theatre credits include: Snow Way Out (Composer) (York Theatre Developmental Reading Series); QuizBowl (formerly Academia Nuts) (Composer) (Winner: Best New Musical, 2014 New York Musical Theatre Festival); Spandex (Composer) (777 Theatre, New York); A Year With…. Veronica Sexton (Composer) (R.A.W Theatrical Duct Tape & A Dream Festival, New York); The Peculiar Tale… (Composer) (2019 Festival Of New Musicals, Goodspeed Opera House).

TV and film placements include: Keeping Up With The Kardashians (E! Entertainment); Passion Prohibida (Telemundo); Ten On Top (MTV); Barney’s Barrier Reef (BBC); Boundless II (Esquire Network); Alien Python Hunt (National Geographic).
