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 name 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). Since 2018 – as assistant to the multi award- winning composer John Lunn – Danny has contributed additional music to several of Lunn’s popular scores.
Alongside Lunn and the multi-award winning Faroese vocal sensation Eivør Pálsdóttir, Saul is credited as co-composer on season 5 of the no.1 Netflix showThe Last Kingdom (2022) and also the feature-length final instalment, Seven Kings Must Die (2023). Their soundtrack album (Destiny Is All), featuring music from the series and movie is due for release on April 22nd 2023.
More recent work includes additional music for composer Ruth Barrett’s hi-octane score to NBC’s Law and Order: Organised Crime season 3 (2022-2023).
Danny has a PhD in music (2016) and a Masters in Music with Distinction (2012) from the University of Manchester.
