Today we had a rehearsal, before we spend a day in pre-production tomorrow, for the recording of my first EP. Very excited that I'm joined by James Cramer, Graham Hopkins and Lorcán O'Dwyer. Really looking forward to getting into studio with these guys and recording! Stay tuned for updates!!
Super excited to be able to share these videos from our Couch by Couchwest 2015 session last week! I managed to perform in no less than four videos - and they're pretty special!! Check them out below...
Tony Fitz and Catherine Ferris invited us to join their Irish showcase, and we headed to this amazing room to record for Couch by Couch West 2015. I joined Tony for a duet in the morning, and then I was joined by Lorcán O'Dwyer on double bass for one of the tracks off my upcoming EP, 'Lilacs in June'. After some packing up, and lots of tea and cake, we were joined by Glen Hansard for a couple of songs! Super excited to see and hear these videos... but we'll have to wait for CXCW to release them to the public before anyone can feast their eyes on them...... Here's a sneak preview of what went on!
Last night I was joined by James Cramer and Lorcan O'Dwyer on stage in the Axis, Ballymun for our first show of 2015....... We played all of the tracks from my upcoming EP, to a wonderful audience! Thanks to all who came along to support new Irish music!
The Axis Home Sessions came about after a few cups of tea and chats in the Axis with Director Mark O'Brien, who wanted to give up and coming Irish musicians a chance to shine, in a specially curated event. Rachael McCormack, Denis Delaney, Niall O'Shea and I were the first bunch of songwriters and musicians chosen to perform.
Mark O'Connor of Irish Gig Images came along and took some great photographs!
