Isham’s inimitable musical voice is evident in his memorable scores for award-winning features including the Oscar-winning Crash and A River Runs Through It (Oscar Nomination) along with Golden Globe-winning Bobby, and The Black Dahlia. For The Black Dahlia, Isham was awarded “Best Score” by the International Film Music Critics Association.

Mark Isham’s collective contributions to the film music community were recognized by his peers when he was awarded the highest honor for a composer by The American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP), the prestigious Henry Mancini Career Achievement Award for musical excellence.

“I always wanted to be the little girl that made rap records,” announces Isabella Summers – and yet elfin-like, Isa doesn’t look like your average hip-hop producer. Nor does she look like the kind of girl who directed horror films,
bought her first MPC off the back of a lorry, or co-wrote
some of the biggest tracks of the last three years. But she’s done all of those things and this is just the beginning.

In 2006, she worked on remixes for some of the indie bands that were hanging around her studios in Crystal Palace, London. Hanging around was amongst others, a girl called Florence. Fast-forward a few years, and Isabella has six co-writes on the critically acclaimed Florence + the Machine album Lungs and three co-writes on the album Ceremonials. When she’s not on tour playing keys with FATM, Isabella is in the studio writing, producing and remixing tracks for an array of talented artists.

Isabella has recently added film and television scoring to her resume and co-scored Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere with Mark Isham. She also created the title theme for Sky Atlantic’s Riviera and is co-scoring Amazon’s upcoming series Panic. 

Mary Ramos has been a Film Music Supervisor for over 25 years, creatively helping Directors find the best songs and scores for their films. She has helped shape the music for blockbuster features, fierce independents and passionate documentaries, and most recently, television series. Along with Grammy-nominated soundtracks and Guild of Music Supervisors Awards for Django Unchained, and Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood, she worked with Quentin Tarantino on The Hateful Eight which brought Ennio Morricone his first Academy Award for Best Original Score and she worked with Reginald Hudlin on his film Marshall for which Diane Warren’s powerful original theme song Stand Up For Something was nominated for an Academy Award. She recently completed work on Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon’s limited series based on a bestselling novel, Little Fires Everywhere, and on Cate Blanchett’s limited series about the Women’s Liberation fight for the ERA in the 1970s, Mrs. America.
