THPSongs are Torrance, Hollywood and Phillips Former Dolphins keyboard player Drew Phillips has worked with some of the biggest names in the music industry including Shane McGowan (The Pogues) Ian Donaldson (H2O) “The Cosmic Rough Riders” and many more too numerous to mention, his Producing skills are constantly in demand around the Glasgow music scene. The music of Torrance and Hollywood has been critically acclaimed by many people in the music world including Fergal Sharkey, Muff Winwood, Paul Young and Tony Hadley. Sinclair Curdie A&R manager at ISA Music described the duo as “the most promising songwriters to come out of Glasgow since Simple Minds”. They have also been involved in writing a film score set in Glasgow which has yet to be released.
THP songs wrote and produced the debut single “Love is the name of the game” for BBC’s The Voice finalist Barbara Bryceland in 2012. THP songs have recently signed a non-exclusive Music Publishing contract with Hook and Rhyme Records in London and a non-exclusive licensing agreement with Amurco, Ostereo and Fresh Sync in the USA. Who are among the largest music licensing companies in the world.
Their client list includes BBC, Sky, Mercedes, McDonald’s and many others. These current agreements will offer THP Songs dual musical representation on a worldwide basis and will enable our compositions to be heard by a massive new audience.
THP Songs would welcome the opportunity to supply to record Labels and Publishing Houses original and unique music for films, TV Radio and Advertising or any other musical requirements that you may need to create the true musical experience for your artists or clients.
Following the death of Gerry Hollywood in 2017 and the retirement of Drew Phillips in 2020, THPSongs is now run entirely by David Torrance and Allan Torrance. Onwards and Upwards.

RIP GERRY HOLLYWOODGerry Hollywood Foundation
THP Songs have lost the 'H' in THP as Gerry Hollywood, born 1st Oct 1949, sadly passed away on the 28th Jan 2017. Gerry will leave a massive hole in THP Songs as he was the driving force and would always keep Drew and Davie from sometimes killing one another! However we will carry on his legacy by working on the songs we wrote with him and the songs he left us that still have to be recorded. REST IN PEACE GERRY. YOU WILL BE MISSED. Davie Torrance & Drew Phillips Here is a link to the Gerry Hollywood Foundation that has been set up. All donations welcome...
