As a composer, Girish wrote the music for the BBC national winning song Wedding Bells, broadcast in 1986 to mark the Royal Wedding of that year. Girish’s composition for the BBC’s international coverage of World Cup Italia 1990 was pipped to the post by a single vote in favour of Luciano Pavarotti’s Nessun Dorma – a worthy winner! Girish released his first solo rock album ‘A Hundred Miles To Go’, mastered at Abbey Road Studios in 2007. His musical, Frankenstein, was performed in Ireland in 2006 and Girish directed the showcase of ‘Gandhi – The New Musical’ on Gandhiji’s birthday, 2nd October 2009 in London’s West End. Girish will compose the score for the Film.
