Danny Saul is a London-based composer working in film and television. His expertise in combining cutting-edge electronics with evocative instrumental scores has made him a sought-after collaborator by several of the most in-demand composers working today, including two-time Emmy award-winner John Lunn (Downton Abbey, Grantchester, Belgravia), Emmy award nominee Ruth Barrett (Sanditon, Bloodlands), and Grammy and Ivor Novello nominee Ben Onono (Ridley Road, Safe).

A soundtrack album (entitled Destiny Is All), featuring music from the series and movie is to be released on April 22nd 2023.
As assistant to John Lunn since 2018, Saul has contributed additional music to several hit TV series including BBC’s crime drama Shetland, Sky’s period drama Jamestown and most recently working with Ruth Barrett on season three of NBC’s Law and Order: Organised Crime (2022-2023).
