Tom Holkenborg, aka Junkie XL, is a Grammy nominated and multi platinum producer, musician, and composer whose versatility puts him on the cutting edge of contemporary music, as well as in the vanguard of exciting new film composers. The foundation for this new career was laid in his native Holland where he created multiple film scores. Later he continued to grow under mentor ships of celebrated composers like Harry Gregson Williams (on “Domino” and “Kingdom of Heaven”) and Klaus Badelt (on “Catwoman”). But things really started to fall into place when Tom started collaborating with Oscar-winning composer Hans Zimmer. As a solo composer he has worked on films such as 300: Rise of an Empire, Divergent, Run All Night and Mad Max: Fury Road. His latest score is Black Mass for director Scott Cooper.
