Born in the North East, John has been a recognised musician and composer since a young age.

He started performing professionally as a singer-songwriter at the age of 13 and by 16 years old he had a major record deal with a band and at that time became one of the youngest ever writers to sign to the Polygram/Island publishing group.

John later went on to gain international fame and success as one half of Trafik band, an act renowned for their ability to write and perform outstanding dance-floor electronica alongside composing successful cinematic soundtracks.

John’s strong compositional style has resulted in music commissions for world-renowned clients such as HBO, CBS, BBC and Channel 4 – perhaps most notably being nominated for a Royal Television Society Award for his work on CSI Miami and CSI New York programmes.

This ideal mix of varied musical experience, coupled with the life-long influence of an Irish Grandmother, has placed John in a unique position to soundtrack Murphy’s Legacy and to create this unique musical journey throughout the show.
