Keith Bayley joins as Producer

Red Guitar Acquired by The Futz Butler

Words by Paul Sumpter, Wednesday 9 Sep 2015


We are thrilled to announce this Autumn, Keith Bayley will be joining the team here as our lead producer. Keith brings with him a wealth of pedigree and experience as a composer, producer, guitarist and songwriter, having worked on literally hundreds of Film and TV soundtracks worldwide; from international advertising campaigns, to award-winning documentaries.

Keith comes to us having started Red Guitar Music for Film & TV in 1995, and over the last 20 years has consistently delivered music for virtually every major global agency out there, including Saatchi & Saatchi, BBH, O&M, Grey, Publicis Groupe, and Leo Burnett; and TV soundtracks for broadcasters and production companies including Nat Geo USA, Discovery, Channel 4, BBC, Channel 5, Maverick, Rogue, Sky, Talkback, Fulcrum and Steadfast to name but a few.

Recent years have seen Keith in the studio as an in-demand session guitarist working on Hollywood film scores such as Blood Creek (directed by Joel Schumacher), Tell-Tale (produced by Ridley Scott), and The Forbidden Kingdom (directed by Rob Minkoff starring Jet Li and Jackie Chan). His distinctive guitar style ranges from roots, slide, acoustic and Americana to atmospheric ambient and filmic textures. Keith has also worked on a wide range of commercial releases, playing alongside artists as diverse as Michael Stipe, Chris Martin and Dennis Hopper. The latest being on the Marina & The Diamonds album Froot (including singles Forget and Immortal) and the forthcoming album for Sony artist Cousin Marnie.

Keith Bayley The Futz Butler

"I'm really looking forward to working with a music production company that delivers what the most forward-thinking filmmakers and clients demand in 2015 and beyond: a network of fresh composing talent that can handle everything from sound design & FX, electronica and beats through pop and orchestral to audio branding; and a passionate attitude to making music that understands its value and importance in making a film really work. That's why I'm so thrilled to be working with the guys at The Futz Butler."

We're delighted to have you onboard too!
