Hailing originally from Nottingham, Paul Kevin Joyce is a composer, producer, orchestrator, arranger and conductor. Following a science degree, he decided instead to opt for a professional music career.
He is known for his music for theatre and television, including the 2005 BBC TV film The Snow Queen and the 2008 British TV film Clay. He wrote Can We Fix It? the theme song to the children’s television programme Bob The Builder selling more than a million copies in the UK and Australia and for which Joyce received an Ivor Novello Award.
Joyce has also written a new contemporary musical work entitled, Celestial. Based on the poems of the late Johnnie Douglas-Pennant, this work is narrated by actor Michael Sheen and features Steve Howe on guitar and soundscapes by Chris Watson.
