Daisy Coole is a composer and saxophonist who often scores for film, TV and adverts under the composer duo name Two Twenty Two alongside guitarist Tom Nettleship. In January 2023, she was selected as a Mentee on WFTV’s prestigious Four Nations Mentoring Scheme.


Known for scoring Primetime TV Drama series 'For Her Sins' (Gaumont), their music has been featured in the New York Times and the United Nations General Assembly, and performed live at the Royal Albert Hall. Feature film scores in recent years include award-winning US abortion drama 'Ask For Jane' starring Sarah Steele (The Good Wife) and Alison Wright (The Americans), documentary 'Shanti Khana', narrated by Ashley Judd, and British comedy heist film 'The Pay Day' starring Simon Callow, which had a US theatrical release in November 2022 and is streaming now on Starz in the US and Amazon Freevee in the UK. The jazz-funk soundtrack for The Pay Day was released on MovieScore Media.


Daisy and Tom’s collaborations with dancers include 'Botis Seva: Air', a documentary/dance film starring the Olivier Award-winning choreographer in a rare solo outing, and 'Swing, Sister, Swing', a narrative swing dance show with a score recorded by a 16-piece all-women big band.


In recent years, they have worked with Sound Designer Dom Lancaster as a full-service Music and Post-Sound team on both features and shorts, including short documentary 'Nial Adams' (winner of the Production Craft Skills Award at the Royal Television Society East Awards), BFI Network short 'Home By 8.30' (nominated for Best Score at Beeston Film Festival), 'My Condolences to Your Future Lovers' (nominated for Best Music at Underwire Film Festival) and upcoming feature film 'Another Day to Live Through' (UK/Finland psychological horror).
