Primary Composer Picture
Lee Holdridge in 2003

"If you're a good composer, you'll come up with pieces that live beyond just the film. Not every film lends itself to writing something really strong that would live beyond the film, but with East of Eden or Splash, if you have a great theme, it goes on in other incarnations."
- Lee Holdridge in 1999

Lee Holdridge was born in March, 1944 in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. 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 (the age at which he became determined to be a composer) he moved to Boston to finish high school and study composition with Henry Lasker. In 1962, Holdridge moved to New York at age eighteen 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 legend 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 in 1973.
