WELL-KNOWN Donegal musician and producer Tommy McLaughlin made a special appearance on the famous BBC Live Lounge this week.

The Termon man performed on the popular Radio 1 segment, hosted by Fearne Cotton, last Monday playing alongside Derry singer/songwriter SOAK, aka Bridie Monds-Watson.


The segment is best known for getting artists to perform a cover for which SOAK chose the song Drown by the band Bringe Me The Horizon.

Tommy, who has worked with some of the biggest names in the Irish music industry such as Villagers, Foy Vance and Cathy Davey, has been working on SOAK’s forthcoming debut album ‘Before We Forgot How to Dream’.

The Derry singer’s album was produced at Tommy’s Termon studio, Attica Audio, which is rated as one of the top studios in the country. It is due for release by Rough Trade on May 29.
