Lifeblood Productions - Music For All Media

In 1996, following several years of recording and touring with the band Marxman, I started writing and producing music as Lifeblood Productions.

The idea behind Lifeblood was to provide "Music For All Media" eg film, TV, advertising, multimedia etc. and today the client list includes RTE ONE, Sky Broadband, Northern Bank, Channel 5, MTV, TnaG and films The Waiting Room, Derailed, I Want Candy, Mean Machine, Human Traffic and more.

The name comes from an interview I read with Philip King, who succinctly stated that "Music is the lifeblood of Ireland", so thanks Philip for that inspiration!

I've just updated the Lifeblood Productions website with recent video clips from film, advertising and also unreleased pitches. If you want to find out more, contact my agency Seeca Music Limited, or drop me a line.

Fascinating.... A User's Guide to 21st Century Economics

as highlighted by Gerd Leonhard

A User's Guide to 21st Century Economics
by Umair Haque

Umair Haque* Tomorrow will not be like yesterday. This is no mere recession: it's a tectonic global shift in savings, consumption, and investment.
* 20th century business isn't fit for 21st century economics. Yesterday's businesses were built for a world of overconsumption, artificially cheap production, symmetrical competition, and macroeconomic stability. That was yesterday.
* Tomorrow's market leaders have new DNA. We've spent the last year identifying next-generation leaders - from the Obama campaign to Google to Threadless to Zara - and learning from them. They look and feel radically different because they were built for 21st century economics, not 20th century economics.
