A native of England, Gregson-Williams learned to read music by the age of 4 and as a child toured Europe as a choir boy with an ensemble from the music school of St. John's College in Cambridge. By age 13 he had been a featured soloist on over a dozen recordings. He went on to study music at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and spent time teaching music to children in Egypt and Kenya before launching his professional career as an orchestrator and arranger for well-known composer Stanley Myers.
He then went on to score Nicolas Roeg's Full Body Massage and Hotel Paradise. Moving to Los Angeles in 1995, he became a protégé of Oscar winner Hans Zimmer and collaborated with him on the scores for Smilla's Sense of Snow starring Julia Ormond, The Whole Wide World starring Renee Zellweger and The Rock starring Sean Connery and Nicolas Cage, among many others.
Gregson-Williams' upcoming project is Andrew Adamson's The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch & the Wardrobe for Disney.
