I'm very excited to announce that the next single 'Onward Still' is coming out on August 28th. We will also have a lovely music video with 1970s footage of Ireland courtesy of Michael Rogge. I can't wait for you to see and hear it!
Me and my good friend Vinny Clohisey will also play a double headline show on August 30th in The Cobblestone Pub, Dublin. Doors 8pm. €8 in.
Also recently I played in the finals of the Irish Ballad Competition hosted by the amazing Philip King. I played a modern ballad 'Sail Away' about Kathleen O'Sullivan: a homeless lady who died on the streets of Cork in December 2017. When I wrote the song 5 months ago there was 9000 homeless people. While currently the number has gone up to 10 000 homeless people. The organiser of the night was very moved by my song, which was lovely to hear.
(Listen to a version with piano + harmonies of 'Sail Away' here)
Also on Sunday August 19th I'll also be playing in another final for The Intercollective downstairs in The International Bar, Dublin. Doors 8.30pm, Free in. I can win a day in the recording studio! Exciting!
As always feel free to request my single 'On My Mind' at your favourite radio station.
Have a lovely day,
