BAFTA-nominated, Belfast-born composer Sheridan Tongue is best-known for working on award-winning drama and documentaries from the BBC, ITV and The Discovery Channel that have reached a global audience.
He is a producer, songwriter, composer, performer and has released albums under his artist moniker IN-IS.
Having started his career working in London recording studios with icons such as Robert Plant and Blur, Sheridan was presented with a gold record for his work on the album ‘Prodigal Sista’ by Beverly Knight.
A Tale of Two Cities: Aleppo and London, the show that used three tracks from ‘Seven Days’ by IN-IS and aired on the BBC, has been nominated for a BBC Audio Drama Award for Best Adaptation.
If there is one message I could tell to everyone working in professional audio (composers, songwriters, engineers, producers, editors, DJs, assistants), it would be to ‘protect your ears – your ears are your livelihood’.
It is hard to fit ‘Everything there is to know about music rights’ into a one hour panel, but at the Belfast Media festival last week that is exactly what our panel tried to achieve.
The panel was chaired by composer Mark Gordon (Score Draw Music) with Louise Baldwin (PRS for Music), Dan McGrath (No Sheet Music), Liz Lavery (On-Music) and myself.
