ANNE DUDLEY is a musician, composer, arranger and producer, who received an Academy Award for best Original Musical or Comedy Score for the box-office hit The Full Monty, released by Fox Searchlight Pictures.

While working as a session musician and arranger, Dudley began to work with Trevor Horn arranging '80s New Wave classics such as Frankie Goes To Hollywood's "Two Tribes," ABC's "The Look of Love" and Malcolm McClaren's "Buffalo Girls."

Art of Noise's album, The Seduction of Claude Debussy, was released in 1999. Dudley renewed her association with Tom Jones when he agreed to record a new version of the Randy Newman classic "You Can Leave Your Hat On" for the final sequence of The Full Monty.

Dudley continues to arrange for artists such as Pulp, Tina Turner, Cathy Dennis and Elton John. She also has an impressive list of film credits, having composed the original music for Pushing Tin, American History X, The Crying Game, Buster, The Sadness of Sex, Hollow Reed and The Miracle Maker. In addition, Dudley wrote the music for the recent mini-series "The 10th Kingdom," and the television film "The Miracle Maker" starring Ralph Fiennes.
