Nathan Klein is a British-American composer who is rapidly making his mark writing music for network television, global advertising and international feature films.
In the realm of television, Nathan has scored fifty episodes of the British Animation Award nominated series ‘101 Dalmatian Street’ which was broadcast worldwide on the Disney Channel and Disney+. He has recently written music for upcoming series with Amazon Prime and Netflix, and was honoured to score the launch episode of RE:TV featuring the Prince of Wales introducing a new global platform promoting solutions for a more sustainable future. Also for the small screen, Nathan was brought in to arrange and conduct the source music for HBO’s ‘Catherine the Great’, starring Helen Mirren, as well as to arrange and produce songs for Katherine Ryan’s Netflix comedy ‘The Duchess’.
Nathan’s debut as a feature film composer, ‘Butterfly Kisses’, won a Crystal Bear at the 67th Berlin International Film Festival and his score was singled out in Peter Bradshaw’s Guardian review. Nathan has gone on to score several more arthouse features as well as composing additional music, and arranging the score as a whole, for ‘Mary Shelley’ (Toronto & Tribeca Film Festivals), which was nominated for ‘Discovery of the Year’ at the 2018 World Soundtrack Awards. Most recently Nathan arranged and produced the score for John Patrick Shanley’s ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’ starring Emily Blunt and Jamie Dornan.
Nathan has composed music for many commercial brands, from Sony Playstation’s Champions League Idents to Kew Gardens, and has worked on major campaigns for the likes of McDonald’s and ASDA. His compositions have been synchronised on a wide range of television such as ‘Blue Peter’ and ‘The One Show’.
After studying music at Oxford University, Nathan’s professional musical journey was kickstarted working as an orchestrator in London’s recording studios. He has contributed to over 25 major films and TV dramas including Black Mirror’s Emmy winning ‘USS Callister’, the Oscar winning ‘Spiderman: Into The Spiderverse’ and the Emmy nominated score for ITV’s ‘Victoria’. Other highlights range from ‘Enola Holmes’, ‘Paddington 2’ and ‘All The Money In The World’, to ‘Oceans 8’, ‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ and Danny Boyle’s ‘Steve Jobs’.
Just as comfortable working away from visual media, Nathan produced and arranged Amelia Warner’s classical chart topping EP ‘Haven’ and also contributed arrangements to Decca’s ‘Bond 25’ album to be released with the film ‘No Time To Die’. In popular music he has collaborated on arrangements for the likes of Kanye West and Madonna. Nathan has also arranged and orchestrated music for venues such as the National Theatre, Royal Albert Hall and London Palladium.
Nathan holds British, North American and German citizenship, and so can work in the UK, USA and EU.
