Quickly recognized as a rising star and live performance juggernaut, Royal Advisor Records signed Sheridan to release his first official EP “Ngoma” which included hit single “Welcome to the Jungle”.

In 2011, Sheridan came out in a lengthy ESPN article titled “Gay and at Peace” written by Dana O’Neil.

S.O.A.P included singles SOAP, Make it Nasty and BOY.

In the summer of 2014, Sheridan was named Grand Marshall of Chicago Pride for his pioneering efforts as a queer in music and sports. In 2015, Sheridan released his second LP as a free download, “G2” or GIANT 2 with singles Greedy, Boop and Push. This project prompted a multi city west coast tour and Sheridan’s first time curating a SxSW queer music showcase in partnership with The One Republiq music showcase in Austin, Texas.
