Composer

John Powell (born September 18, 1963 in London, England) is an award-winning film score composer.

He initially trained to be a violinist as a child prior to studying at London's Trinity College of Music. Powell later traversed into jazz and rock, and went on to play in a soul band called "The Fabulistics". After ending college, Powell composed pieces for commercials, leading to a post as the assistant to composer Patrick Doyle on a number of films, among them Much Ado About Nothing.

In 1995, Powell went on to co-found the London-based commercial score house called Independently Thinking Music, which went on to produce scores for over one hundred English and French commercials, along with a number of independent films.

Powell composed the scores for the franchise's first 3 sequels; The Meltdown, Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Continental Drift. Other notable works include Robots, Horton Hears A Who!, Rio Duology, Happy Feet Duology, How To Train Your Dragon Trilogy, Shrek and a number of others.
