In 1999, Vince co-founded Beetroot Music and began writing music for television commercials. Over the past decade, Vince has worked on numerous high profile campaigns for brands including Nike, BMW, Guinness, Honda, John Smiths and Walkers, winning several prestigious industry awards along the way.
In 2011 Vince was nominated for a BAFTA and went on to win the RTS Award for ‘Best Original Score’ for his score on the second series of Channel 4’s Misfits. The same year, Vince scored his first feature film, My Angel, starring Timothy Spall and Brenda Blethyn, for director Stephen Cookson. Since then, Vince has scored the multi award-winning Wallander starring Kenneth Branagh, the first two series of Bedlam (Red Productions), five series of the critically acclaimed Misfits (Clerkenwell Films for C4), Bluestone 42, a situation comedy of army life in Afghanistan for the BBC, and Great Night Out, a new comedy series by Hat Trick for ITV, and Be Right Back, from Netflix/Channel 4’s dystopian sci-fi series Black Mirror.
