Default Need help getting in-touch with a composer. Idk if this is the right area to post?

This is probably an unusual post however I know there are a lot of well known individuals who use this forum quite religiously and could probably help me out at-least point in the right direction.


I am looking on how to contact or get in-touch with a contact who is close to the British composer John Murphy, who's famous from many movies such as 28 Days & 28 Weeks Later, Lock stock n Smoking barrels, etc. He makes amazing compositions of music.

I have been a huge fan of the theme/film music for the 28 Weeks Later, its just something I've been obsessed about since the movie came out, its actually what allowed me to discover him and also be a fan of the movie and its series, and its also allowed me to discover other composers such as Hans Zimmer (so) and many others.

Anywho, in short I am trying to get in touch with Mr Murphy because I could not resists by putting words/vocals to the 28 Weeks Later "In a House in A Heartbeat" theme/film music that he composed, and without certain permissions to release it to the public, its really just there to look at.

I had sent an email that I found on his website and also privately messaged his soundcloud account, however I am not sure these are proper ways to get in-touch with John Murphy or perhaps not even professional to do so?

Looking for a way in... I just want the man to at-least allow it to be publically heard as well as sharing it with him first to be considered. I am in no way looking to become famous or asking for any currency based on it. I love the music and could not resist putting words to it, that is all.

Any assistance would be very appreciated.

I seriously doubt you will be able to contact Mr. Murphy, and even if you did it probably wouldn't do you any good as all of the rights to that music is probably owned by the movie producers...

Just rockin'...what more is there?

I've been able to contact some big names.... it takes a bit of digging. But I cant find anything significant to really go off of other than what I have already found.

I would think that the publishing company or his management would be the place to start.
