Dan Watts

Biography

Dan has written music for film, tv, advertising, theatre and the web in all kinds of styles and different production types from drama, animation and sports to documentaries, game and cookery shows. He's probably best known for his work on the Doctor Who spin-off series The Sarah Jane Adventures, the CBBC show Wizards vs Aliens and most recently for his production skills and additional music on the bombastic score to BBC One's The Traitors.

Over the past couple of years he's scored the psychological thriller Seagull, two animations for BBC New Creatives (including the award winning Intensive) an online campaign for The Guardian newspaper, the documentary My Life: On The Fast Track for CBBC as well as releasing music as an artist himself.

Dan doesn't just compose though as he also does session guitar work, synth programming, mixing and production for other musicians and somehow still finds time to co-host the podcast Making a Soundtrack.
