Paul Beard



Originally from the UK, Paul trained as a classical and jazz pianist from an early age, and after attending the Royal Academy of Music he made a name for himself as Musical Director and keyboard player for some of the biggest names in music including Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Bryan Ferry, Leona Lewis, and Art Garfunkel. He produced the UK #1 single “Somewhere Only We Know” for Lily Allen which was synched in the famous John Lewis Christmas campaign.

Beardy has scored and produced music for short films and TV commercials for several leading global brands including Just Eat, John Lewis, Mars, and Mercedes. He is extremely versatile and comfortable within any genre and sound palette and specializes in the use of vintage synths, tape delays and the latest music software.

Now based in Sydney with his family after relocating from LA, Beardy has been busy co-writing and collaborating with Australian artists including Guy Sebastian, Natalie Imbruglia, John Farris, our own Damien Leith, Sir Jude, Mason Watts, Odette and most recently Universal artist Cap Carter on his current single “Riot”. He’s also currently working on a composition project with the acclaimed Richard Tognetti (principal violinist with the Australian Chamber Music) featuring his wife Satu and Jim Moginie from Midnight Oil.
