Jonny Southard is a modern classical composer living in London, UK. He started piano at age 6 and since, music has remained a central part of his life through and beyond his studies at postgraduate level, where his main research explored varying approaches for articulating emotion in film music.
Driven by a dedicated fanbase, Jonny's independent releases have received worldwide recognition, with over 5 million streams on Spotify and 500K on Apple Music.
Jonny is largely inspired by landscapes and the natural world, deriving from a rural upbringing in Devon, Southern England. Drawing from the ambience of admired film soundtracks and the beauty of impressionism, he combines the two sound worlds within a modern framework.
Complementing this, a warm aura of English folk drives the harmony, carrying a sense of soul into the music and reflecting the composer's sensitive outlook on the modern world. The underlying tone is, for the most part, dark and melancholic, yet the melodies that run parallel are bright, comforting and distinguished.
