julian stewart lindsay is a versatile composer of music. He was classically trained at the royal academy of music in london, england where he also studied piano, voice and motorcycle-despatch riding. it was whilst there that he cheated in his history of music exam although the fact has gone unnoticed which is lucky.it was at the end of his studies there that he became involved in pop music. during this period he was variously, a song-writer, a musical director, a producer, a session musician, an arranger, a manager, a conductor and a publisher. he was fortunate enough to be involved with many artistes including stevie wonder, the beach boys, culture club and ziggy marley. and if you ask him nicely he may tell you about luther vandross and the pacman, boy george and keith richards. on the other hand . . . . . . . . . .
and then just when you thought it was safe he decided to return to his first love which was composition. living in los angeles, the south of france or jamaica was all very well but what he really yearned for was the grey smog and parking restrictions of london where upon his return he composed the signature tune for the landmark television series, network 7. a show that spawned a thousand imitators but only one janet street-porter. this led to one project after another and if you click here you can read all about the anothers.
and if you're still paying attention it might be as well to add that as well as writing for film and television he has also written numerous scores for stage oh and a requiem oh and a work entitled vox dei especially commissioned by the chorister school at durham cathedral for the millenium. since when he has been busy in the world of television and film and he has also written mumerous scores for a myriad different stage plays. look closely and you will see that he has a ballet or two up his sleeve. although not when the weather is hot as the modern t-shirt doesn't afford the space. he once heard brian wilson say that he had run up a huge bill on something or other. unfortunately no one witnessed this feat, but it is an amusing thought . . . . . . .
