Shirley Anne Walker (April 10, 1945 – November 30, 2006) was an American film and television composer and conductor. She was one of the few female film score composers working in Hollywood. Walker was one of the first female composers to earn a solo score credit on a major Hollywood motion picture (preceded by Suzanne Ciani who wrote the complete score to the Universal Film "The Incredible Shrinking Woman" in 1980, released January 1981) and according to the Los Angeles Times, will be remembered as a pioneer for women in the film industry. She wrote her film scores entirely by hand. She always orchestrated and conducted her own scores by herself.
