BAFTA nominated composer Sheridan Tongue has composed music for some of the UK’s best-loved television dramas and documentary series.


Sheridan draws on a wide range of musical experiences, from orchestral and electronic to folk-influenced world music, to create his unique and diverse musical scores.

Ensuring originality throughout his work, he strives to avoid the traditional routes of composition and offers a more left-field approach to each project. This approach to writing was influenced by many years working in the recorded music industry as a producer, remixer, orchestrator and arranger.

Sheridan’s formal training started on the University of Surrey’s Tonmeister course. It was there that he explored his love of sound manipulation and recording alongside that of orchestration, composing and performance.

In subsequent engineering jobs with London studios, he would record his own music through the night and it was one of these late night creations which caught the attention of the director for his first commercial job as a composer.

Sheridan’s continued success in scoring highly popular TV projects is a result of the close personal rapport he establishes with each Director and Producer. He is a true collaborator and a multi-talented musician. This is a rare combination of gifts.
