Glenn Keiles was born in South Africa in 1959.

    He was educated in S.A. and in 1979 emigrated to the United Kingdom to pursue a career
    in music. In 1985, as one half of a partnership, he opened a recording studio in Brixton, London, and
    learnt the arts of sound engineering, programming and producing.

    In the late 1980's Glenn turned his hand to assisting TV and film composers with programming
    and orchestration. In March 1994 Glenn got his first TV commission and by the end of that year had
    written music for four BBC documentaries, two films for Readers Digest and the 13 part award
    winning TV series "Treasure Island 2" for Carlton Television.
 
   The last twelve years have brought projects varying from TV thrillers to a MCA Records C.D. release of
    Glenn's music from the BBC1 series "Lives of Jesus".

In 1999 Glenn co-wrote the music for "Millennium", a Jeremy Isaacs/CNN co-production.
    The music of this series was nominated for an Emmy.

    Glenn's main interests lie in the fusion of styles like choir, orchestra, ethnic instruments
    and technology, something that becomes clear when listening to his music.
