From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Feargal Sharkey (born Sean Feargal Sharkey on August 13, 1958) is a Northern Irish singer who first found fame as the lead singer of pop punk band The Undertones.

His best-known solo material is the UK chart-topping single A Good Heart, which sold highly in the UK and Ireland. His solo work is significantly different from the semi-punk offerings of The Undertones, being closer to new romantic music.

Starting in the early 1990s Sharkey moved into the business side of the music industry, initially as an A&R manager for Polydor Records. He was a Member of the Radio Authority for five years from December 1998 to December 2003.

Currently is Chair of the UK government task force the LIve Music Forum.
