JOSEPH DE LA HOYDE

Otherworldly concepts, visceral sounds

Having studied classical guitar from a young age whilst listening to his dad’s Police records, composer/producer Joseph is a chameleon, having worked in genres from pop, electronic, R&B, country, rock and classical.

 

As a producer and writer, Joseph has written and produced music for artists spanning rising pop act Nick de la Hoyde to country's Jasmine Rae, whose latest album ‘Lion Side’ on which Joseph co-wrote two tracks ‘Green Light’ & ‘Gentle Man’, producing ‘Green Light’, was nominated for ‘Best Country Album’ in the 2020 Aria awards. His work has millions of streams across Spotify and Apple music, and has been added to commercial radio from Australia's Nova, 2Day, KIIS to the UK's BBC one and Sirius XM in the USA. He has worked with songwriters in Sweden at the Kennel and MFG, alongside artists signed to Sony, Universal, ABC, Warner, The Orchard and Believe throughout Australian and the USA. In 2020, his work on Nick de la Hoyde's debut album 'A Beautiful Mess' was recognised, winning ‘Best Pop Album’ at the Independent Music Awards. Joseph has performed at events including Miami’s Rolling Loud festival 2018, Singapore’s Music Matters and headline and support dates throughout Australia and the USA.

 

Through his artist/producer venture, ZU/ZU, Joseph releases his own brand of experimental electronic music. He has remixed music for artists on Interscope Records roster in the USA and in 2018, his remix of the ’Mission Impossible Fallout’ theme by film composer Lorne Balfe was released by Paramount Pictures following the release of the widely successful film. 

 

With a firm footing in film, Joseph has written scores for two Channel 9 documentaries, a Cannes featured short film ‘Old Beginnings’, and trailers and advertising campaigns for brands such as Coca Cola, Toyota, Twitter/Niche and Finish. His scores for documentaries 'Life Challenge Kokoda' and 'Road To Peace' were featured in national and international theatres and television throughout Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea. Joseph works freelance for various production houses and libraries, including EMI/Castle Music Production Music, Sandcastle alongside Bleeding Fingers in the USA.
