Stephen Daltry

Stephen Guy Daltry is an English film composer and pianist. 'Variety' newspaper praised his score for the Sundance festival hit 'The Moo Man', which features lyrical impressionistic piano solos mixed with some mellow jazz-inclined tracks, and bucolic, humorous pieces like 'I do Like to Be Beside the Seaside', Daltry's woodwind & piano arrangement of the old English musical hall favourite.

A student of the National Film School (1990-1994), contemporary with Dario Marianelli, Stephen has scored music for over 40 television documentaries and films, from 'The Hunt' (BBC2 - Cultural Prix Italia, 1999) , 'Diana, Secrets Behind the Crash' (1998, ITV), 'Too Scared for School (CH4, 2004), to the recent feature-length 'The Lost World of Mr Hardy' (Trufflepig Films, 2008) and 'Charlotte: A Royal At War' (Grace Productions, 2008) for Luxembourg cinemas.
