Josh Wynter

Josh Wynter is an award-nominated composer living in Cape Town, South Africa. He is the musical force behind a number of hit international series such as Bitten, Neill Anthony Private Chef and Ocean Adventurer, with feature film credits including scoring multi award-winning Nobody’s Died Laughing, and Jake Reid’s The Antwerp Dolls.

The son of a 1960s pop singer, but also classically trained from a young age, Josh’s work often transverses the stylistic dichotomy of his heritage, evading easy classification and showcasing a musical mind that is endlessly curious.

Projects scored by Josh have picked up awards at Cannes and British Arrows, as well as the SAFTAs, with Josh achieving an international Music & Sound Awards nomination for best original composition on his 1950s style live orchestral soundtrack for Pearl and Dean’s Tumbleweed.

Josh currently works with acclaimed directors, producers, animators and music supervisors around the world, following his passion for telling stories.

Josh is represented by Eaton Music/Music Sales Creative, London.
