Blair Joscelyne
Composer

Before I could walk I was crawling over the foot pedals of an old organ that was in the corner of the farmhouse where I grew up. I started playing keyboards when I was 5 years old, and my first task was to re-arrange the notes of "Mary Had A Little Lamb" because I thought it sounded better when played backwards. My mother organised me formal piano lessons on my 8th birthday and my father gave me a reel-to-reel 4 track recorder that he picked up from the radio station where he worked. I bought a mixing desk from Dick Smith for $50 and a microphone for $10 and started experimenting with recording. Throughout my teenage years I travelled to the Conservatorium to do my piano grades, and would then rush home to play drums in my heavy metal band and splice up analogue tape. 

After a decade of classical piano study I finished school and embarked on a music degree with a double major in Composition and Music Technology. I left four years later with an Honours degree and a hunger to write as much music, in as many styles, and with as many people as I could.  

I began writing music for short films, TV commercials, and doing location sound all over the country while continuing additional studies at the Conservatorium of Music and Berklee College of Music.  

I set up some studios, wrote a lot of music, worked with some of the biggest brands in the world, won some awards, and continued to be completely infatuated with music, and the creative process of making it.

I've released a number of albums and singles under a variety of different names which you can check out here. My albums 'Kei To The City' (2014) and 'Chasing Midnight' (2015) both went to #1 in Australia, and made the Top 10 in charts all over the world including USA, Canada, UK, NZ, Ireland and Austria. In 2016 my single 'These City Lights' hit #2 on the electronic charts and in 2017 I released 'Quarter Mile Dreams', a retro throwback to the 1980's.  It went to #1 in Australia, UK, Norway, New Zealand, Sweden and Malaysia. #2 in Canada, #4 in the USA and #5 in The Netherlands. 

I love writing music for TV & Film and composed the original score for the National Geographic TV Series 'Tales By Light' (Series 1 & 2) which is now available on Netflix.

I've enjoyed teaching and working with music students of all ages over the years and I am a writer for Audio Technology Magazine, Australian Guitar Magazine and Video&Film-Maker Magazine.

For the last 10 years I've been fortunate to be a successful full time composer and I am currently represented in Sydney, and New York by Nylon Publishing.
