Australian trained composer Jonny Higgins is recognised as one of South Pacific's most innovative commercial composers. He has received numerous award nominations for his short film scores, and his commercial music has been nominated for a CAANZ Axis Award. Jonny came to the world of commercial music in Sydney via small-time production houses, which eventually led to contracts with significant agencies. He earned recognition in Japan for a Coke campaign, and in the US for Burger King's ‘Satisfries' campaign. He worked on several successful solo projects, including Stereo’dan & 1985, and it was during these years that Jonny mastered the use of combining vintage tape machines with in-the-box technologies. His work has earned him a reputation as one of the fastest turnaround composers, with anything from electronic to traditional orchestral arrangements. Jonny lives between Sydney and a New Zealand farm where he does most of his studio work.
