Sarah Lynch is an award-winning film composer who has scored an array of films, tv series, documentaries, commercials and games.

Her latest projects include the 8-part comedy-drama series ‘The Dry,’ produced by Element Pictures (Normal People, The Favorite) for Britbox and ITV Studios, directed by Paddy Breathnach, which boasts a stellar cast including Academy Award nominee Ciaran Hinds.

Other recent projects include: ‘Vengeance is Mine,’ the UK revenge-horror feature directed by Hadi Hajaig, starring Con O Neill; and ‘The 8th’, the HotDocs award winning feature documentary by Cowtown Pictures, which condenses decades of political history to explain Ireland’s 1983 anti-abortion amendment and the movement to repeal it.

Sarah also collaborates with composer Stephen Rennicks, working on feature films such as ‘Death of A Ladies Man’ starring Gabriel Byrne and the Bafta winning and Emmy and Golden Globe nominated BBC3/Hulu series ‘Normal People.’

As a classically trained violinist and pianist, Sarah brings that influence along with a background steeped in folk, experimental and rock to her intuitive and dynamic scores. Over the years, she has performed live and recorded with a host of artists including Hozier, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Glen Hansard, Paul Brady, Shane McGowan, Mundy, Mumford and Sons, and Ed Sheeran. She has also composed orchestral arrangements for prominent artists such as
the legendary Mary Black.

Sarah’s talent has earned her numerous awards: In July 2019, Sarah was chosen as 1 of 12 film composers worldwide to participate in the prestigious ASCAP Film Scoring Workshop, which culminated in a 65-piece orchestral recording session at Fox Studios. She was the 2019 recipient of the Michelle and Dean Kay Award, which was presented to her in December at the Lincoln Centre in New York, by the ASCAP Foundation.

Sarah was also nominated for the Peer Rabin Music Award at the prestigious Soundtrack Cologne Festival as well as being nominated for a Jerry Goldsmith Award for her composition, Transient Thoughts.
