I have busked my way from Dublin to New York to L.A. and guested with artists including Wallis Bird, Declan O’Rourke, Alabama Three & the Hot House Flowers. Now I feel the time is right to set the ball rolling with my own release!
Debut single – ‘LOVE HATE’ – hits iTunes Digital Stores on Friday 2nd November, 2012.
I recorded my album in Wales, London and Dublin. Highlights of the recordings include…
* Staying up until the early hours writing music on the same piano Freddie Mercury played during the ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ sessions.
* Being a big fan of Amy Winehouse, I was delighted to record 4 songs with the string orchestrator & players from ‘Back to Black.’
* I had the pleasure of working with producers Roger Bechirian (Elvis Costello, Bell X1) & Adam Kviman (Eagle Eye Cherry – ‘Save Tonight’; Picturehouse – ‘Everybody loves my girl’) & numerous great musicians.
***Debut album is scheduled for release early Spring 2013***
I consider myself a perfectionist & intensely strive to develop my craft. I have squeezed every last bit of my energy & creative juices into this album & now look forward to taking it on the road & giving it new life!
I enjoy feeding my mind with colour & taking large chunks out of life – I love running marathons whenever my injury-prone legs allow, climbing up ‘big mountains’ and jumping in the Forty Foot.
Academia was one of my strong points – I received a scholarship to study business & legal studies in UCD where I attained a first class honours degree. However, music was always my first love & so here I am!
