Powell originally trained as a violinist as a child, before studying at London’s Trinity College of Music. He later ventured into jazz and rock music, playing in a soul band “The Fabulistics”. On leaving college, he composed music for commercials, which led to a job as an assistant to the composer Patrick Doyle on several film productions, including Much Ado About Nothing. In 1995, he co-founded the London-based commercial music house Independently Thinking Music, which produced scores for more than 100 British and French commercials and independent films.
