Thank you to our supporters, writers & collab'ers!

Throughout the year we have been steadily building our publishing catalogue.
We have a licensing store that is due to be launched in 2013. You can check it out now to get a feel of what’s to come here:

Whilst creatively toiling away recording in our solar powered production studio throughout 2012, Tygahoney Music collaborated with the following award winning songwriter/composer/artists on new song writing projects in the Funk, Neo Soul, House and Chillout/Electronica genres. We wanted to give all of them a shout out. 

What a unique year! We've been nurturing these cyber-music relationships at the same time as getting our USA based operation up and running. Thanks for being a part of the experience everyone.  Here’s to a positive, productive and successful future:

This year we worked with: 

Barrie K. Sharpe
Gareth Tasker
Felix XFile Macintosh (General Levy, Asian Dub Foundation, Aref Durvesh)
David Beazer
Neal Conway  (Crystal Waters, Ultra Nate, T.I., Mary Mary)
Marshall Booze
Robert Burbidge

and had remixes by: 

Phat Frank
Sal Negro
DJ Ant B
Pure Elevation

It was fun to co-write and provide the vocals on projects with Felix, Barrie and Neal respectively. The releases "Colour Pt. 1 and Pt.2" with Barrie K. Sharpe ( and "Candid" with Felix Macintosh ( were released in July and October this year. Check them out and buy them from our store:

We had more placements of our music on prime time shows and documentaries around the world including shows on Discovery Channel, BBC America, CNN, ABC and MTV including: Primeval, Jim Doherty in Darwin's Garden, Royal Wedding of a Lifetime, Plain Jane, Ros na RĂșn, 0 ond 1 and so much more! 

So, the year ends with more great tracks and mixes in our catalogue, ready to be released and licensed for multiple music purposes during 2013 and beyond. They'll be unveiled soon. Subscribe to this blog so you can be the first to hear.

Tygahoney Music intends to continue to make a positive difference with its work too, keep an eye out for more updates on our CSR orientated projects.

I am excited to see what the future holds.

BIG thanks to Independent Music Group and Ellis Rich OBE for being so supportive with the administering of our Publishing Catalogue. 

To our wonderful supporters who have purchased our music, shared our pages and updates, commented, bantered with and RT'd us, thanks for your support in 2012, for sticking with us and for being a part of it all.

Enjoy your holidays.

See you in 2013!

Submit Your Music! (Tygahoney Music - Conscious Sounds Project)

2012 has been a great year for building positive relationships, working on and commencing new projects and partnerships in music, media and with businesses of all sizes. We've been developing great projects in the US, Asia, Europe, Australia and at home in the UK.

We are currently updating our music catalogue which is due for relaunch in January 2013 and we are seeking new music. For this search we are looking for songs with ethical, social and environmentally "conscious" themes for a variety of projects including film, documentaries and company videos to add to our growing music licensing catalogue. If you are seeking publishing opportunities and would like to submit your music for consideration, please contact Storme at:

In order for your email to be opened please ensure the following at the very least:

Include "Tygahoney Music -  Conscious Sounds" in the subject line. Otherwise your email will not be opened (we get too much spam as it is!)

In your email:
  1. Let us know your name and your relationship to the writer/composer (s).
  2. Confirm that you have been authorised to seek placements for the music that you are sending links to.
  3. Make sure we have the copyright holder's contact information. Including: Email, Phone number & Address.
  4. Only send in links to a web page with samples of the music you wish to be considered. 
  5. Ensure there is an up-to-date biography and information about the relevant song or songs on the page.
  6. Let us know which tracks you wish to be considered on the site you send us to.
  7. Make sure your song has been properly mixed and mastered and is "release ready".
  8. Be sure to include your PRO's name and your writer member number.
We will only notify you when we have listened to your song and to inform you whether or not it has been selected. After that, we'll be in touch to finalise the process. Sending your music in does not guarantee acceptance or us listening, but we shall try our best to listen to all submitted music. We'll let you know when our books are closed for this particular topic. Subscribe to this blog and keep an eye and ear out for other opportunities with us.
