Project Description

David Buckley, Composer

Emmy nominated composer David Buckley’s recent film scores include Universal’s Nobody, Greenland, Papillon, Jason Bourne and The Nice Guys. Previous scores include Blood Creek, The Town, Parker and The Forbidden Kingdom.

For television, David composes the music for The Sandman, Your Honor, Evil and The Lincoln Lawyer (Netflix/A&E). He has also composed the scores for the hit The Good Wife and its spinoff The Good Fight for which he received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Title Music.

Born in England, David’s first involvement with film music was in the Choir at Wells when he performed Peter Gabriel’s score for Martin Scorsese’s The Last Temptation of Christ. He continued his musical education at Cambridge University. In 2006, David moved to Los Angeles where he began working with Harry Gregson-Williams on scores including Shrek The Third and Gone Baby Gone. He has written music for films including Wonder Woman, all the Fifty Shades movies, Big Eyes and American Hustle, and his music was featured in David O’Russell’s Joy. David was honored as a ‘Brit to Watch’ by BAFTA.

As well as film and TV, David has written the music for a number of games, including Batman Arkham Knight.

Without hesitation, I can say that the eight wonderful years at Wells provided me with the musical foundation that has led me to where I am today. I feel hugely privileged to have been surrounded by such talented musicians, both the staff and my peers, and many remain firm friends and colleagues to this day.”
