Arthur Jeffes founded Penguin Cafe in 2009, after bringing together a talented and disparate group of musicians including members of Suede and Gorillaz to perform his late father Simon Jeffes’ legacy of world-renowned Penguin Cafe Orchestra music. Soon after he began to create new and unique genre-defying music, with the spellbinding philosophy of his father always in mind.
Outside of Penguin Cafe, Arthur’s composition work has included several shorts and commissions. He worked with Greenpeace and Aardman Animations to compose the soundtrack for ‘Turtle Journey’, released in 2020 to high acclaim, to promote the Greenpeace ‘Protect the Ocean’ campaign. The film since won the Jury Prize in the ‘Commissioned Film’ category at the Annecy Festival 2020, alongside multiple Gold awards at The Drum Roses Awards and the Ocean Hero Award at Blue Water Film Festival.
