Scott Shields is a composer, producer and songwriter with edge and integrity. Known in the UK and the US for his work in feature film, television drama and album recordings, Scott has firmly established himself as one of the best deliverers of contemporary, eclectic and unhesitant scores.

As a multi-instrumentalist and a much in-demand musician, Scott began his career playing, writing and producing with Joe Strummer and The Mescaleros, GUN, Shakespeare Sister, KT Tunstall and The Beautiful South.

It was through his acclaimed collaboration with the iconic Strummer that Scott first ventured into the world of film in 2001, when he and Joe were invited to write the soundtrack for director Sheree Folkson’s comedy feature Gypsy Woman starring Jack Davenport. Read more in Biography
