Lucy Bright started out at Mute Records in 1996, spending four years working with artists such as Nick Cave, Depeche Mode and Sonic Youth and avant garde composer Simon Fisher Turner who scored Derek Jarman’s films. She then moved to Warner Records for six years working in the classical division and overseeing the film score releases such as The Hours (Philip Glass) and Requiem for a Dream (Clint Mansell). She managed Michael Nyman during a particularly exciting period (2006-07) when he worked on James Marsh’s Academy Award-winning documentary Man on Wire which led her to collaborate with Nyman’s publisher Music Sales, a company she then joined full time in 2008, overseeing an extraordinary roster of film composers including Gabriel Yared, Alberto Iglesias, Dustin O’Halloran, Jocelyn Pook, Philip Glass, Nico Muhly, Alex Heffes, David Julyan, Joby Talbot, Hildur Gudnadottir, Ludovico Einaudi, Tan Dun and Volker Bertelmann.
Lucy has music supervised some of the most critically-acclaimed British films of recent years: Samantha Morton’s directorial debut The Unloved which won a BAFTA Award in 2009, Clio Barnard’s The Arbor (2010) which won awards at Tribeca Film Festival, London Film Festival and British Independent Film Awards, Lynne Ramsey’s The Swimmer which won the BAFTA Award for Best Short 2012, and John Maclean’s Slow West which debuted at Sundance Film Festival in 2015 where it won the Jury Prize for World Cinema – Dramatic. International projects have included the blockbuster Assassin’s Creed (2016) starring Michael Fassbender and award-winning Marjorie Prime (2017) starring Tim Robbins, Jon Hamm and Geena Davis and featuring the music of Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Bryce Dessner (The National) and Academy Award nominee Mica Levi.
Her work in television is equally renowned: Southcliffe (2013) directed by Sean Durkin received four BAFTA TV Award nominations with Sean Harris winning for Best Leading Actor and Shane Meadows’s This is England ‘90 (2015) which won three BAFTA Awards: Best Mini Series, Best Supporting Actress and Best Director. Most recently she has music supervised the BBC/AMC series McMafia (2018) and the forthcoming new Channel 4 series from Shane Meadows, The Virtues.
