Tom Ryan is a UK based composer with clients across the globe. Working in film, advertising, gaming and online TV, he is making a unique contribution. Between traditional Hollywood orchestration and a growing collection of analogue synths, used for a unique and retro flavour in sci fi drama, Tom’s versatility is evident.
Tom’s work has immense reach, with online projects he has scored seen by over 215 Million people worldwide. This includes bespoke compositions and orchestrations for the viral show JonTron, adult animation channel Flashgitz and animated musical web series Hazbin Hotel (distributed by A24).
Tom’s clients also include Europe’s biggest fintech institution, Klarna (for whom he worked with Stainless Sound to produce the theme music of its first worldwide marketing campaign) and National Geographic, scoring the historical audio documentary 'A Reckoning in Tulsa' in May 2021. In Summer 2021, Tom assisted his mentor Ian Arber on 'Fever Pitch: Rise of the Premier League' shown on BBC 2.
Challenged to compose within different cultural settings, he has scored films and games for clients in Australia, US, Canada, Columbia and UK. This includes over 25 animated shorts, such as the award winning SpellBound (RTS Student Television Awards). As well as horror feature Sanctuary Population One (Marche Du Film, Cannes 2019) and mobile game SwipeScape (“Most Addicting Game” Indy PopCon 2018).
