Marius de Vries


Marius de Vries served as the executive music producer for the 2016 film La La Land and produced the accompanying soundtrack. He also co-wrote the song "Start a Fire”. He was the music director of the 2001 film Moulin Rouge and worked with Nellee Hooper on the film soundtrack of Romeo + Juliet as co-composer, programmer, and co-producer. Both of these projects won de Vries BAFTA awards, and he was awarded an Ivor Novello Award for his compositional work on the former.

Beginning his music career playing keyboards for the English eighties pop-soul band The Blow Monkeys, he has since written, arranged and produced across a wide range of styles and genres for artists such as Madonna, Bjork, David Bowie, Rufus Wainwright, Chrissie Hynde, Neil Finn, Annie Lennox, Bebel Gilberto, David Gray, P.J. Harvey, U2, Massive Attack, Elbow, Perry Farrell and Josh Groban, amongst many others. He was involved in Björk's "Debut," and together with Nellee Hooper was responsible for landmark recordings with Massive Attack, Björk, Madonna, The Sneaker Pimps, Tina Turner, and U2.

In Music Theatre, Marius has worked with Andrew Lloyd Webber on several projects, co-producing the cast album for A.R Rahman’s Bombay Dreams, and contributing music production and arrangements to the sequel to Phantom of the Opera, Love Never Dies. Artits’s homepage

As a rule, we only have bios on artists that Grace has worked with or who have had a part in the creation or production of her music. The amount of information on each of these artists varies greatly, dependent on how much has been readily available. We have tried to identify the artists correctly, but sometimes it has been difficult to determine who exactly is behind the name. Unless otherwise stated, the bios are based on data retrieved at the start of 2021.
