Biography

Rolfe R. Kent (born 1963) is a British-born film score composer.

Rolfe Kent was born in St. Albans, Hertfordshire, England, UK, he has no formal musical training, but always loved sound and music, and at 12 decided he’d like to be a film scoring composer. By playing in a series of terrible bands (to whose awfulness he was a potent contributor) he did his film scoring career no good at all, so he stopped and wrote music for theatre instead, and then started composing for student films.

He has now scored feature films in Hollywood and Europe successfully for a few years. With 30+ film credits to his name, Kent has worked multiple times for several directors including Alexander Payne (Election, Sideways, About Schmidt), Mark Waters (The House Of Yes, Mean Girls, Just Like Heaven), Richard Shepard (Mercy, Oxygen, Matador) and Jeff Nathanson (The Last Shot).

Kent received a Golden Globe nomination for “Sideways”, and earned BMI Film Music Awards for “Legally Blonde”, “Legally Blonde 2”, and “Freaky Friday”.

Amongst the many other films for which Kent served as composer are “40 Days and 40 Nights,” “Kate and Leopold,” “Nurse Betty,” starring Renee Zellweger, “The Wedding Crashers” starring Vince Vaughan and Owen Wilson, “Thank You For Smoking” starring Aaron Eckhart and “Mercy”, as well as the Showtime television show “Dexter”. He is currently developing a musical theatre piece for which he is also the lyricist.

    I'm looking for the house of yes song, when jackie o would get sort of taken by the fantasy of it all--was that you? it's captivated me since i first heard it...just like a simple major chord: low note-middle-high-middle-high-middle-low-middle; shift one note higher, and repeat, only finish back on the high note, and one higher...good job!

    Tonight's the night. And it's going to happen again and again. Has to happen. Nice night. Miami is a great town. I love the cuban food, pork sandwhiches, my favourite. But I'm hungry for something different now.
