Life and career[edit]

After studying with renowned composers Chen Yi and Nicholas Maw at Peabody Conservatory, Honeyman moved to Santa Monica, CA to pursue his interest in composing music for film. He quickly began writing for the scores to such films as Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl(2003), Constantine(2005), and Poseidon(2006) alongside German composer Klaus Badelt.

He went on to score a number of films on his own, including Lilly the Witch: The Dragon and the Magic Book, directed by Academy Award winner Stefan Ruzowitzky, which enjoyed two weeks as the top box office earner in Germany. In 2012 he received an Award Of Merit at the Global Music Awards for his score to the film The Philly Kid about which soundtrackgeek.com [1] wrote, “doesn’t feel like a factory-produced piece of Hollywood, but rather a score with soul and heart”.

Ian lives in Marina Del Rey, CA with his wife Joanna.
