Function: Film & TV Composer WSAcademy: WSA Voting Member
Blair has composed well over two-hundred scores for film, theatre and television, with clients ranging from The English National Ballet and The Royal Shakespeare Company to the likes of BBC, SKY & ITV. He is a BAFTA nominated, award-winning composer with over 15-years’ experience, and is consistently in high demand. His work includes Class, an acclaimed 8-part Doctor Who spin-off series on BBC One, ITV’s international hit show McDonald & Dodds and SKY’s The Amazing Mr Blunden.

He composed the score to Russell T Davies’s latest drama Nolly, starring Helena Bonham Carter, for which he was nominated for a BAFTA TV Award in 2024. That collaboration then led on to Men Up, a film Russell exec-produced, airing on BBC1 shortly afterwards. Doctor Jekyll, a new Hammer Horror film starring Eddie Izzard was released theatrically in cinemas in late 2023, with many praising the film’s bold and musical score. Blair also provided the music for Black Dog – which after featuring in BFI’s Cannes GREAT8 Showcase, is set for a theatrical release in 2024 through Vertigo Releasing. Other recent projects include thriller After The Flood, a new six-part show on ITV1 and Britbox from the producers of Happy Valley.

Classically trained from an early age, Blair has a BA (Hons) in Music from Durham University and an MA in Composition for Film and Television from Bristol University. In 2012 he was nominated for a Creative Scotland Award for 'Best New Talent' in the Scottish arts. As a musical arranger he has worked on shows including Doctor Who and David Attenborough's Life Story. Blair is a full voting member of BAFTA and frequently judges awards such as The Ivors and BIFAs. McDonald & Dodds and The Amazing Mr Blunden were double-nominated for ‘Best Original TV Score’ and ‘Best Opening Titles’ in the Music & Sound Awards, with Nolly also picking up a nomination for Best Original TV Score in 2023. In early 2024 Nolly won ‘Best Soundtrack’, at the World Entertainment Awards in Los Angeles, securing its reputation as one of the most critically successful TV scores of that year.

Blair currently splits his time between London, Los Angeles and Edinburgh.
