Eddy Temple-Morris, who has worked in what could be termed as the Entertainment Industry Plus for over 27 years, has extensive experience as a radio presenter and a radio show producer including years of duty at BBC Radio One, Atlantic 252’s On The Edge, The Remix show on XFM and his current position as a presenter on Virgin Radio. His TV experience includes producer and presenter for MTV’s Up For It, presenter on Channel 5’s chart show, producer and presenter for ITV’s This Way Up, presenter for Channel 4’s Mobile One The Grid.
He’s been music curator for festivals, TV and radio shows, even music for The Queen’s summer exhibition plus the favorite tour DJ of The Prodigy, Placebo and Pendulum. He’s produced and composed music used by Films and TV shows including Game Of Thrones and CSI, and video games like Far Cry. He is undeniable proof you can get through this business while being nice to people. Plus he is Chair of the Music Board of mental health charity, CALM (Campaign Against Living Miserably) and involved with a new game changing mental health start up and non-profit called My Black Dog. He is on a mission to get men to be more like women, by this he means to communicate their feelings more openly and for people to realise that suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. He moves, like a benevolent vapor, between the worlds of music, radio, TV, cars, food, wine and mental health. One day he’ll do something that joins all these things. We wish you luck on that.
