In-House Composers

John Clarke

Music has always been the main passion in John’s life and he’s been playing guitar and bass in various bands since the early 1990’s, when he also studied music at College.

His eclectic taste in music naturally led to an interest in film scores and, in setting up Cottonfield Music, has taken the next step in realizing his life-long ambitions.

While John’s main strengths are in guitar and bass guitar, he also has skills in piano/keyboard, banjo, mandolin and also provides backing vocals for the bands he plays in. His musical versatility means he can play in a variety of styles and is also fluent in digital music software.

He has written and produced music for various film and other media projects over the last ten years, in addition to other songs and instrumentals also produced and released.


Ian Chapman

Ian has always been passionate about music, and has a wide and varied taste. His musical strengths are in producing and lyric-writing - some funny, some serious, some truth, some fiction. He also enjoys coming up with riffs and ideas that he then works on with John, and other musicians, to produce the music he loves. 

Ian is a film-maker by trade, and the benefits of this are that he can write, produce, film and edit music videos and other promotional material for the bands and artists Cottonfield Music works with.
