photo of us

Pen Motif are Robin and Tracey Grove, living in Kent in the UK (close to London). We provide original music for TV, film and media and we write music to picture as well as to brief. Our freelance background which also includes graphic design and illustration (we met at art college like most good musicians!) means we're used to deadlines and briefs - and we enjoy a good relationship with our clients.

We both have diplomas in composing music for the media and certificates in recording techniques as well as between us: grade 8 guitar, grade 7 piano accordion and grade 7 music theory.


We have written a soundtrack to a short film, recently joined a prestigious American A&R company and had several pieces forwarded to prominent publishing/production companies, written songs on commission, played our songs live in Camden,
London, as well as Kent, carried out session singing (including for Leee John, Imagination), played in a theatre orchestra and collaborated with a lyricist/performer as well as other music projects and commissions.

Most of all we just enjoy writing good music, combining classical training with musical intuition!
