Between making new material and the pandemic I took a long break from Music.
For the pandemic years I stopped playing because without performance the relationship I had with music held no foundational point of reference.
Now that the places I call home are finally getting back to what they should have always been (a liberal and free place), I’m back doing some gigs and am also going to work through making some new albums! One of which will probably be based on Irish music which I have played for decades but never recorded.
I took some time off from recording but am getting back to it again now. The fourth album is coming to a close, some of it is older songs that I finally finished, the others are newer ones. I also have a few ideas for an acoustic album which is probably the most representative of my music because most of the time I’m playing it’s just me and a guitar. I’ll post more when I have it!
Super pleased to announce that my 3rd studio album ‘Blacksheep’ has been released on iTunes and Spotify!
My 2nd album ‘the new old songs’ is now available on all of the major online shops Spotify and iTunes
‘The new old songs’ is an album that was written in the early 2000’s and recorded in 2007 with Mark Reddy but they were never released, they sat on a hard drive gathering virtual dust for about a decade.
The songs are some that I am really pleased with and I think you may be too. The people on it were me, Simon Farrell on bass, David Lawless on drums, Mark Reddy stepped in to do a guitar solo on ‘woman that you are’, I simply had to have him put down some chops because I was a big fan of his when I was younger – I still am but I was back then too!
On that track Bazz also featured on bass, I don’t know his real name but will update with actual details if I ever find them out.
Weekly bluegrass and American gigs continue every Thursday from 10pm in Delaney’s of Knocklyon. Come along and if you know how to play let us know and maybe you’ll sit in for a song or two?
