Red Heartbreaker aka Red Janes
Red Heartbreaker has a split musical personality. A classically trained mezzo-soprano and flautist, her perform-ance and composing work refuses to be pigeonholed. Composing everything from choral to orchestral, rock to electronic, she's thirsty to keep it fresh.
Red was deeply honoured to accept Leo Award nominations for Best Original Score in a Motion Picture for her work in 'White Raven' (Directed by Andrew Moxham - White Buffalo Films) and for 'Charlotte’s Song' (starring Iwan Rheon & Katelyn Majer - Done Four Productions) culminating in a win for the latter picture - along with her music team colleague Maya Saxell, they were the first female composers ever to win a Leo award in that category. She recently received a 2023 Leo Nomination for her score to the Lifetime TV Movie “An Amish Sin”.
Red was selected as the panel favourite at the 2017 Whistler Film Festival’s inaugural blind composition challenge, featuring such esteemed panelists as Janine Scalise Boyd (VF Music, Starz Entertainment) Tony Scudellari (SVP TV Music, Sony TV) and Julie Weitz (EP/President, Carol Mendelsohn Productions/Sony Pictures Television).
Red's film ‘Brother, I Cry’ directed by Jessie Anthony has made a strong showing at film festivals worldwide and has won 5 awards and 8 nominations. She is currently scoring for both Lifetime and Hallmark.
Nothing is off the table.
