Hugh Sheehan is a musician—multi-instrumentalist, composer, and producer— from Birmingham, England, now based between Helsinki, Finland and the UK. He grew up immersed in Irish traditional and folk music, before going on to study classical composition and computer music at university. The coalescence of these two worlds, supplemented by an adolescence spent in guitar bands, countless hours at raves, and a continued preoccupation with club culture, defines his creative practice. Recent projects include the BBC Arts and Arts Council England-commissioned audio work Lost Time, which examines the time lost and experiences gained by LGBTQ+ people in getting to truly be themselves. His forthcoming debut album is a contemplation of shame, desire and queer selfhood.
