James Morris



Music for Your Project


Based out of East London, James Morris is a composer for film, tv and games. He started writing music as assistant composer to Guy Michelmore on an array of projects (including Marvel's Iron Man: Armored Adventures and The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes) and from here has moved on to score many other films, adverts and games with much success. Under the name Rest Stop, he has recently released his debut album "Life Support".

“I love to use instruments in unconventional ways and really blur the lines between what is electronic and what is acoustic. My favourite approach when working with a character is to find a sound or instrument that really feels like it resonates with them and through various methods build a score from that.”
