Olly Ashmore began a career of prolific composing at an early age and by tender age of just sixteen he'd written play-scores, choral music and musical theatre works and joined the late, great Sir Peter Maxwell Davies on the prestigious composition course at Dartington's School of Music. A year later he was offered a place to study composition at London’s Royal Academy of Music.
At the Royal Academy of Music, Olly studied with Chris Brown, Bob Chilcot, Nick Ingman & Paul Patterson graduating after four years with an Honours in Composition and conducting. He won a string of awards and composition prizes including The Pullen Prize, The Oliva Prescott Prize and the Eric Coats Prize. (Twice!)
Since graduating, Olly has worked on a succession of diverse projects.
In 2009, he won the prestigious ‘Stiles & Drewe Best New Song Prize’ with a song from his hit comedy musical, ‘Hot Flush!’
Olly has been involved in almost every sphere of music creation and production, working as Musical Supervisor and Orchestrator on West End and European productions, conducting and recording scores for arena events, television and national tours as well as writing numerous original musicals and Christmas shows.
Olly has worked extensively for Qdos Entertainment since 2002 as Musical Supervisor for up to 12 productions each year whilst also acting as Musical Director and composer at times.
