Sacha Puttnam: Bio

Sacha Puttnam was born on April 5, 1966. Being the son of a noted film director Lord David Puttnam, he made some film appearances in his early days as a child. Later, Sacha studied in Russia, as well as Berkley, CA, as a composer and conductor. Some of his former students included the children of Tony Blair (Former Prime Minister of England).

Sacha returned to his classical music roots once Bush split in 2002. He appeared on Chris Coco's album in 2002 entitled Next Wave, which was more of an ambient style of music. Later he did a full collaboration of classical music with Chris Coco and on the album Remasterpiece. More recently, Sacha released a solo album in July 2014 entitled Puttnam Plays Puttnam.

Sacha is currently working and living in Ireland as a composer and arranges music for many mediums including movies, advertising, television and radio. He has one daughter, Ava May, that was born in 2005.
