After rising to international stardom as the drummer for the Police, Stewart Copeland parlayed his success into a career as a composer, authoring a prolific series of film and television scores, video game soundtracks, and even delving into opera and ballet. Despite his origins in rock and pop, Copeland’s solo career has been reliably eclectic.

After his acclaimed soundtrack to Francis Ford Coppola‘s Rumble Fish and an African-inspired solo album, The Rhythmatist, he continued to branch out both as a composer and collaborator, playing in projects like the jazzy Animal Logic and the funk-fusion supergroup Oysterhead.

A high-profile reunion tour with the Police in 2007 returned him more firmly into the rock world, as did the 2017 project Gizmodrome. In 2022, Copeland earned a Grammy Award for Divine Tides, a collaboration with new age composer Ricky Kej, then returned to his earlier work with the 2023 album Police Deranged for Orchestra.

Stewart also has two books out and a documentary that details his experience with the Police.
