Feargal was brought up in Northern Ireland where he was one of 10 siblings. He earned £7.01 in his first job at aged 18 of which his mother took £5 for housekeeping. He found fame with the band 'The Undertones' before setting out on his solo career. In 1992 Feargal moved into the business side of the music industry and in 2008 became CEO of British Music Rights and later that year became Head of British Music. In answer to the question 'What is the best way to stay successful?' Feargal answers - "In terms of business: constantly reinvent, reinvigorate, keep going, pushing, rejuvenating yourself. It’s very easy to become stale and lacklustre. For me it’s always been a constant process of self-analysing. In the modern world it’s about self-satisfaction and knowing I did something really well today".
