Simon Boswell (born October 15, 1956) is a BAFTA nominated British film score composer, conductor, producer and musician, with more than 90 credits to his name. He is known for combining mainly electronic elements with orchestral.
An alumnus of the independent Haberdashers' Aske's Boys' School, Boswell studied English Literature at Pembroke College, Cambridge. Playing the guitar since the age of 12, he was an accomplished guitarist and was signed by Transatlantic Records in 1975 whilst still at college. This led to the release of his first solo album, "The Mind Parasites", a collection of contemporary acoustic songs and instrumentals.
He formed the band "Advertising" in 1977, at the beginning of punk rock era. Labelled 'Power Pop', the band was more of an homage to the pop art style of Andy Warhol and the Velvet Underground. They toured extensively with Blondie.
After the split of "Advertising", Boswell became a record producer both in the UK and Italy. He produced Italian mega star Renato Zero's album, which became the biggest selling Italian album of all time. Boswell's record productions from the 1980s have influenced many contemporary musicians – notably the sample of the band 23 Skidoo's "Coup" which became The Chemical Brothers' "Block Rockin' Beats". After producing two albums for the London band Live Wire he joined the band.
