I have been playing in bands and writing music since I was at school.
I have composed albums and individual tracks for Bruton and Chappell music libraries. Go to the Universal Production Music site and do a search for Jerry Peal to hear and download tracks.

The Now Show Compilation
The Now Show is a topical comedy show on Radio 4 which is recorded on a Thursday evening and goes out on Friday evening. From series 18 to 26, I composed music for the sketches in the show each week (to enable the show to be legally podcasted i.e. no commercial music in the recording). Everything you hear in this next compilation was written and recorded on various Thursdays, in the three hours between seeing the script for the first time (4.00pm) and rehearsal (7.00pm), usually about 2 or 3 pieces per show.
