John Hennessy on SoundBetter

Hi, I’m an Irish composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist and songwriter based in Berlin. Most of my experience comes from an original music project called Black Pope. I co-produced my debut album with recent Grammy-winner Cian Riordain (St. Vincent, Lana Del Rey) and have been featured in Mojo Magazine and Hotpress Magazine.

All Black Pope songs were written, arranged, performed by me (with the exception of a few guitar/bass parts). I'm currently developing my mixing portfolio, but those tracks were written, arranged and co-produced by me with Cian Riordain.

I’ve played drums, piano and guitar for over ten years, earning several qualifications. This has lead me to developing a deep passion for recording, production and sound design. My three years studying Music, Management & Sound at Colaiste Stiofain Naofa in Ireland gave me a chance to develop my original project while also giving me an in-depth knowledge of Live and Studio Sound, Music Theory, Songwriting, and Music Business. I then went on to receive an Honours BA in Creative Musicianship at ICMP London, where I completed a Live Project, a Creative Project and a dissertation on Italian horror film soundtracks.

I am deeply passionate about music and I’m excited to get stuck into interesting projects. If you like what you hear, please feel free to get in touch.
