RESUME DETAILS
  • *
    Lee Holdridge was born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His mother is Puerto Rican
    and his father American. He spent his early years in Costa Rica, beginning
    music studies on the violin at the age of ten with Hugo Mariani, then the
    conductor of the National Symphony Orchestra of Costa Rica. At fifteen -
    now determined to be a composer - he moved to Boston to finish high school
    and study composition with Henry Lasker.
    Later, Holdridge moved to New York to continue his music studies and begin
    his professional career as a composer. While in New York, he wrote chamber
    works, rock pieces, songs, theater music and background scores for short
    films. Holdridge’s successes in New York came to the attention of Neil
    Diamond who brought Holdridge to Los Angeles to write arrangements for
    Diamond’s forthcoming albums. A string of gold and platinum hits followed,
    which led to Diamond and Holdridge collaborating on the film score for
    Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
    Since that time Holdridge has scored numerous film and T.V. hits including
    films such as Splash, Big Business, Mr. Mom, Micki & Maude,16 Days Of
    Glory, The Other Side Of The Mountain Pt. II, Mustang Country, The

    the NBC mini-series 10.5, the PBS Emmy nominated series American Family,
    Christopher Reeve’s The Brooke Ellison Story for the Arts and Entertainment
    Network and Saving Milly for CBS. He scored Moriah Films feature length
    biography of Simon Wiesenthal entitled I Have Never Forgotten You: The Life
    and Legacy of Simon Wiesenthal, which had its premiere at the Berlin Film
    Festival in 2007. He recently completed the score for the moving
    documentary feature film Brothers at War. Recent projects include the epic
    documentary feature film by Richard Trank on Winston Churchill entitled
    Winston Churchill: Walking With Destiny and the Hallmark Movie The
    Shunning. The newest film projects include the forthcoming It Is No Dream,
    Hell And Mr. Fudge, The Confession, Liz & Dick, When Calls The Heart and
    The Prime Ministers.
