I am currently composing a new animated series called 'Kiva Can Do', produced by Kavaleer and also providing the score for the GPO's 1916 Easter Rising Commemoration.
Most recently, I did the score for 'Zig & Zag', currently showing on CBBC and RTE, produced by Double Z, Flickerpix and JAM Media.
Before that, I worked alongside composer Anna Rice on two seasons of the Nicktoon US animated series 'Wild Grinders'. During that time, I composed music for Mark O'Connor's feature film 'Stalker', which was released in cinemas nationwide.
Recently, I provided additional music for 'Fleabag Monkeyface' on ITV, wrote the music for the Digicel 4G TV campaign and my songs appeared on the RTE1 TV show, No Place Like Home.
I did the signature music for an anti-slave labour campaign on MTV Europe and I provide all music for the Irish Playwrights & Screenwriters Guild Awards each year.
Now.. that's my gloating completed.

I have composed 2 works for orchestra that have been performed to audiences around the world. 'In Spirit' and 'Steeplechase' received their premieres in 2008 at the World Fleadh in Ireland and were subsequently performed by the Dublin Philharmonic Orchestra on their 40-date tour of the US, the Philharmonia Bulgarica in Bulgaria, the Percy Grainger Youth Orchestra in Australia, the Orchestre De Bretagne in France and the DPO in China. CHINA!
He has also worked extensively with Frankie Gavin & De Dannan, orchestrating arrangements for several live pieces by the band with orchestra. One such piece was performed live on a tour of China and broadcast to millions on TV as part of the Beijing Festival. CHINA!
Jonathan has also orchestrated for the rock band MrNorth, who released a live album with orchestra 'live in new york' in 2009. He also wrote the band's single, 'Whirlwind'.
