Music For Media


Award-winning composer Mike Payne’s background is as a guitarist in indie-rock bands, including acclaimed cult pop combo Third Light, and progressive-ska troupe Danny Fontaine & The Horns of Fury. 


Born in Dorset, Mike was first musically inspired by his folk band parents.  He apprenticed under The Royal College Of Music’s Irving Martin, producer to Barbara Streisand and Andy Williams. As he developed into producing and engineering, his own composing and recording oeuvre has expanded - Payne’s versatility is second to none.


His tracks have led major TV campaigns for Thierry Mugler’s Womanity perfume, Flora Pro.Activ and Sekonda. Scores for BBC One’s ‘On Stage’ and National Geographic’s ‘Megafactories’ have followed, including tracks featured in documentaries ‘A History Of Art in Three Colours: White’ and ‘The 70’s’. Mike's score for the independent short 'COMMUNE' also won 'Best Music' at Film Merveilleux & Imaginaire's, Paris.
