Wicklow based songwriter and arranger Terry Topley has had his original Dublin ballad "Hooray for the Liberties" featured in Christian Slater's new TV series "The Forgotten", on ABC TV in the US. The show is broadcast coast to coast on Tuesday nights and the episode called "Double Doe" was set in Chicago.
Terry's LA based publisher, Tanvi Patel, says, "The Forgotten scene using the song by Terry was in an Irish bar in a Chicago suburb which has a huge Irish population. His song worked great in establishing the atmosphere of the bar, with a great lead in before the dialogue kicked in. Irish music is requested quite a bit for film and TV use, and having authentic songs by real deal Irish musicians from Ireland like Terry really adds credibility to the Crucial Music catalog. We are honored to have Terry's music in the catalog".
Terry is currently in the early stages of producing an album of some of his rock, country and folk songs. His 2003 album, "Call Me a Rover", has received airplay throughout the world and besides his regular Dublin and Wicklow live appearances, Terry has also toured in the UK, Germany and Spain.
