Update Oct 2018

Diving In..

I’m sorry I’ve been so quiet on the site for way too long now but I’m delighted to let you all know that I have finally started to record some new music and I hope to be in a position to share it with you before the end of this year.

I’ve been working with a new producer and engineer and the music we’ve created so far is possibly my best work yet.

Since the release of the Tried & Treasured EP, I’ve put out two collections of music as well as 2 remixes. Both of the live releases, “Acoustic, Live & Honest” and “Live at The GhostLight Sessions” are available to stream online as are the remix versions of Crying Shame and Ballad Of A Troubadour. I worked with some wonderfully creative people in the last two years on various collaborations so do check out those releases and my social media sites for more info on those.

As I mentioned, I’ve been staying under the radar to a certain extent, working hard to earn the money that is needed for recording and publishing my own music and bringing it to the fans. But rest assured I have been writing and working on new ideas. I had the opportunity to visit and perform in Poland, London and Sweden earlier this year so it’s been a really successful year so far.

I’m almost finished work on a new song called “Diving In”. It will be the next single or part of a new EP, I’m not sure which yet. The track is a continuation of the Tried & Treasured sound but it brings the listener to a new sound which I am trying to explore with the help of Martin O’Neill producer and engineer.

In other news…

The Back To Basics Tour Documentary is complete and we have two screenings planned for Nov. Check out my gig listing page for ticket info, times etc.

November 6th – The Sugar Club, Dublin

November 16th – Nuns Island Theatre, Galway.

That’s it for now.

I hope to update this page more often and keep you all in the loop. But until the next time please check out the gigs page and come along to hear me play one of my regular slots in Dublin, Monaghan, Carrickmacross or Drogheda.

See you soon.
