Tim Davies is an arranger, orchestrator, and grammy-nominated composer. As an arranger he has written for the likes of Amy Winehouse, Cee Lo Green, Miguel, Akon, Salaam Remi, Nas, and many ensembles including the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Metropol Orkest. He is also one of the busiest conductors and orchestrators in Hollywood. Recent projects include: The Hangover Part III, Smurfs 2, Frozen, Muppets Most Wanted, and Need for Speed. He is also active in orchestral video game scores, having worked on such titles as Infamous 2, Batman: Arkham City, Knack, and The Last of Us.

In 2010 he was nominated for a Grammy for best instrumental composition for “Counting to Infinity.” His third album will be released in early 2014. It features four charts each from his Australian band and his Los Angeles band, and a new work for double big band.
