Julian Hinton

ArtForm: Workshop Panellist, CityShowcase Act/Composer

In a career spanning 20 years, Julian has worked with the up and coming through to the heavyweights of the music business. Always passionate and creative his collaborations have proved long lasting.

Beginning at age 12 with a classical training followed by periods playing piano and keyboards in all styles, his enduring love of records, and the art of the song lead him to find a home at London's famous Sarm Studios where he has spent the past 5 years working alongside Trevor Horn as arranger and keyboard player, as well as producing for Horn Productions.

As comfortable creating an intimate piano part or conducting a thunderous orchestral score, working for the likes of Seal, Birdy, Rumer and Sarah Brightman, arranging for 5 piece vocal harmony group The Overtones and long standing relationships with Trevor Horn and Don Black speak volumes for his musical vision and drive.

The past few years have seen Julian recording, arranging and conducting at London's Angel,  Abbey Road and Sarm Studios,  producing for Sony and Warner, playing live and MD'ing with The Trevor Horn Band, vocal arranging for The Overtones and writing the lead single for the new album and writing music for the BBC. 2014 alone saw him score over 25 string arrangements for various artists and he will feature as performer and programmer on a new album of original music from Seal.

2015 also sees Julian reform his production and writing partnership with Graham Archer, Grammy nominated engineer/producer whom he met whilst at Sarm. Graham's credits include Madonna, Sam Smith, Jeff Beck and Lana Del Ray.
