About Shaye

Shaye Poulton Richards is a composer, lyricist, and game designer creating works for theatre and video games.

She is currently in her final year studying composition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London, writing music under the tutelage of composers Errollyn Wallen, Dr Laura Bowler, and Dr Dominic Murcott.

Highlights from her commissioned song cycle Alone, Together (2022) for vocal and harp chamber group Levedy Ensemble are available to watch here, and her symphonic fable for orchestra, Hettie's Imagination (2021), is available to view here.

Shaye works as a junior game designer at narrative-driven video game studio INT./NIGHT. In April, their debut game As Dusk Falls was selected for the Tribeca Festival 2022 Games Showcase, and you can check out more about their highly anticipated upcoming launch title in this behind-the-scenes video here.

She focuses on writing tone poems, cross-genre vocal music with dramatic sensibilities, and working inside the story driven world of video games. She is always excited to explore unique forms of storytelling in different mediums, so feel free to get in touch here.
