Gawen Robinson, who makes his home in the United Kingdom, has written music for as long as he can care to recall. He composed around 300 songs before he was 14 on an old acoustic guitar given to him by his mother. Having experienced the rock music world for a number of years playing in several semi-successful bands, he decided to concentrate on musical theatre (both acting and composing). His collaboration with lyricist Stephen Robertson has, over a number of years, produced large-scale, sung-through musicals. Gawen has also composed several, small-scale children's musicals based around historical topics covered in primary schools. He is looking forward to starting on a major new work sometime soon.
