Cormac O CaoimhCormac O Caoimh has just released his new album and his third solo outing “The Moon Loses its Memory” . But this cd is a different collection of songs. Some (Basement, Silver as mercury and Burning Coal) are exploring darker subject matter to previous releases. Others (Maze of your hear, Man of Sand and Yellow Crumbs) fit closer to the indie pop collection of  his first cd (Start a Spark) and others continue in a similar style to the songs of A New Season for Love (but given a different treatment).

And yet..they all fit together either sonically or thematically. The finished product was also a very unique collaboration between the audio and the visual, between pictures and words, between stories and dreams…between the songwriter (Cormac O Caoimh) and between the photographer (William Crowley). William Crowley chose 14 of his wonderful photographs that personally related to each song.

Cormac O Caoimh is a singer-songwriter and classical guitarist from Cork, Ireland. His intimate vocals and exquisite guitar playing is attracting the attention of musicians and music lovers alike. His new series of videos attracted the attention of Godin Guitars and he is now an official Godin Guitar endorsee.

“Cormac’s songs are like little sculptures… considered, shaped and honed into things of beauty that find their way to your soul.”

– Fiachna Ó Braonáin (Hothouse Flowers)

Cormac O Caoimh’s latest cd released June 20th is receiving great reviews and airplay. To coincide with the release he is about to embark on tour ..taking in Dingle, Kilkee, Galway, Clare Island, Ballymore Eustace, Dublin and his hometown of Cork.
