Gary Clark, Composer in Sing Street

Gary Clark began his career as singer-songwriter-multi-instrumentalist in late '80s sophisti-pop band Danny Wilson. He penned the band's 1987 international hit "Mary's Prayer". Now considered classic, it still regularly re-enters the top 100 airplay charts in the UK.

After the band split in 1990 he continued for a while with some solo projects, but increasingly was moving into the areas of songwriting and production for other artists. He continues to do this today, and has worked with, amongst many others: Natalie Imbruglia, Liz Phair, Lloyd Cole, Melanie C, Emma Bunton, The Veronicas, Delta Goodrem, McFly, Demi Lovato, Ferras, Lawson, Gin Wigmore and The Wanted. In 2014 he had two of his biggest international successes to date with Kim Cesarion's "Undressed" and Alex Hepburn's "Under" both of which were top five singles across Europe and number 1s in more than one country.

Although his credits in film and television to date are impressive, having contributed songs to There's Something about Mary, Nightwatch, Jawbreaker, Wild Things, Charlie’s Angels, Grey's Anatomy, 666 Park Avenue, Underbelly, Teen Wolf and Pretty Little Liars, amongst others; Sing Street is the first time Clark has written directly for the screen.

Clark has 3 BMI awards, has won Nordoff-Robbins/PRS songwriter of the year and has an Ivor Novello nomination for Best song musically and lyrically for “Mary's Prayer”.
