Well the mad man trying to get out of me and writing this music is. I am from Dublin in Ireland and As a Musical Artist, multi instrumentalist, I tell life stories through Acoustic Folk/Rock and Blues .
In my school days, I learned the thin whistle and Bodhran and writing short stories was a huge passion of mine. I wrote all the time and when I stopped, I wrote some more.
Over the years that followed, while I started teaching myself other instruments, I started putting my stories to songs. The guitar became my first love for turning them into songs, giving them life. I felt a knack for it. A perfect fit for me and I have been writing this way ever since. I have played on the live circuit for many years, way before this social media thing. Playing live gigs up close and personal, supported many bands and auditioned as a solo artist, getting through the many stages involved with Tv shows like , Ireland's Your a star and the Voice. Only to hit a brick wall involved with reality Tv, and its Politics.
I have had my work Chart in Itunes, Deezer and IHeartRadio and to date I work with teens producing music through workshops I created, through a youth club in association with a youth organisation called Foroige. Recently I have moved into scoring for film, and with that New project in the making, hopefully exciting times ahead.
