Will Hyde

Will Hyde's passion for music was evident early on; he picked up the cello and piano at just six years old. By eleven, he was showcasing his cello mastery at venues throughout the UK. His artistic aspirations soon expanded to composition, leading him to study at the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, followed by music production at the Academy of Contemporary Music.

In his early twenties, while at university, Will secured an internship with Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe, assisting them with the score for "Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows" — an experience that solidified his career path. Post-university, from 2012, Will lent his composing talents to the BBC's Natural History Unit, creating music for wildlife documentaries that continue to captivate audiences globally.

In addition to his BBC contributions, in 2015 Will established Hyde Music. Through Hyde Music, Will works with leading advertising agencies such as Bartle Bogle Hegarty (BBH London), Brooklyn Brothers, Mother, and Wieden+Kennedy, to produce compelling soundtracks for their advertising campaigns utilising a network of talented composers and musicians he has brought together.

Hyde Music also serves as a bridge to the future of the music industry, with Will mentoring and overseeing the development of gifted, up and coming composers passing on his experience to them.

Beyond mentoring, Will is committed to advancing his understanding of music's psychological impact. He collaborates with musicologists and audio experts, especially in the realm of sonic branding for clients.

Will's latest project, “Animals Up Close” with Bertie Gregory is out now on Disney Plus.
