Amelia Warner is an English actress and musician from Merseyside, England.
Warner was first recognized for work as an actress on the 2001 BBC production of R.D. Blackmore’s Lorna Doone. On the set, in down time, Warner would compose music and write songs, a passion that she’s had since childhood.
She began her musical career as a singer-songwriter under the name Slow Moving Millie, writing songs featuring piano and vocals with organic textures which drew her acclaim in the indie genre. One of her works, ‘Rewind City’, received much media attention after it was used in an Orange advert, as well as her rendition of The Smiths’ ‘Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want’ being chosen for the 2011 John Lewis Christmas advert. Her first EP ‘Arms’ reached #1 in the iTunes classical chart.
In 2016 Warner released the score for her first film music project Mum’s List. Warner’s beautifully gothic score to Mary Shelley, starring Elle Fanning and Douglas Booth, earned her a nomination for Discovery of the Year at the 2018 World Soundtrack Awards. In February 2017, she launched the first in a series of seven composition releases that formed the complete suite ‘Visitors’. ‘Visitors’ consists of seven new original works, each based on a fictional female character.
2020 saw the release of her 3rd artist album ‘Haven’, on Decca Records, with the key single being sampled in a new track by Fearne Cotton & Helen Mirren. In the same year she composed the score for the Lionsgate / Bleecker Street film Wild Mountain Thyme, starring Jamie Dornan, Emily Blunt & Jon Hamm.
