kim halliday   composer & musician

welcome to my world

cd cover grab


is a composer and musician working in London.  Kim began playing the violin at age 7, took up the guitar and dropped the violin (although he kept the bow) at 13, and spent his early teens trying to become Jimmy Page.  Rescued from a life in Prog Rock by Dr Feelgood, Kim signed up for the punk wars having seen Wilko Johnson prove that a simple Telecaster could be a lot more exciting than a Pantechnicon full of guitar effects.  After several years of punk, new wave, psychobilly and ska, in garages, rehearsal studios, and warehouses, Kim decided that life in a sweaty transit van with 3 blokes he hated wasn't a sensible career goal, so he set off on a path towards film music and movie composer superstardom.


In an uncharacteristically sensible moment, he signed up to the London International Film School to learn how to write to picture, and while there scored several prize winning shorts.   He has written and played scores for feature films, (Credo, Pink Pumpkins at Dawn), documentaries (Microbirth, Freedom for Birth, Doulah!, Real Birth Stories), commercial video and theatre.


His latest release, Halflight, is available on Ravello Records.
