James Copperthwaite

Crafting music for Film, TV & Advertising

A multi-instrumentalist and composer for feature documentaries and global brands

The story behind the sound

Jim Copperthwaite is a multi-award winning composer and multi-instrumentalist working across genres from feature docs like Steve McQueen:The Man and Le Mans (Cannes Classics), Finding Jack Charlton (BBC Films) and the BAFTA-nominated The Fight of Their Lives (ITV) to global ad campaigns for brands including Carlsberg, Nike, Artois, Hyundai, Range Rover, Arla and EE. Equally at home with orchestras as he is with his array of tech and vintage synths, Jim seeks to make music that connects to narrative with subtlety, beauty and emotion. After several years touring the world as drummer, bassist player and keyboard player of the band 'Aqualung', he now works from a converted barn on his Somerset smallholding where his passions for music, food, livestock and sustainability have space to flourish.

Jim’s work spans feature documentaries to global ad campaigns for brands including Carlsberg, Nike, Artois, Hyundai, Range Rover and EE, and music from orchestral to tech and synth-driven.
