Cliff Leatherbarrow (Media Composer) Info:

"The music is well composed and produced, and fits the action well ...
with an effective use of contrasting style modules to tell the story.
I liked it when the music burst into the funkier modern style"

"Again the music is thoughtful, lyrical and subtly romantic (without being overly schmalzy). Cliff's score is suitably atmospheric, understated, and subtle ...
and beautifully played, recorded and produced."
Richard Atree - TV and Film Composer
