Nathan McCree is a music composer and sound effects editor for multimedia projects including computer games, television, live events, and radio. He worked mainly with Core Design, for the first three Tomb Raider games, among others. He worked also with profile names such as the Spice Girls and Orange.[1] In 2008 he became full-time Audio Director for Vatra Games where he worked until 2010.[2] After this he became Audio Director at City Interactive in Warsaw where he worked on Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior and Alien Rage.

He has been praised among critics and has received several informal awards. Tomb Raider III has long been regarded as the "best sounding computer game to date" and Nathan's work on the Sega Mega Drive game Asterix and the Power of the Gods earned the accolade "Best Mega Drive Music Ever!".[3] Recently, thanks to the vast flash site Newgrounds, he worked together with Adam Phillips and composed the music for his latest release in the Brackenwood series.
