Please bare with me, as I have deleted virtually all of the old web site and its content. This is the start of a more ECO friendly 2016 journal, that I can develop and update, while I am on the road...
I also recorded a LIVE Acoustic Session and interview for Irish TV station NVTV on January 7th 2016. This is an edited version of the songs performed but, you can also see the whole interview online @https://vimeo.com/152280939
A new look, a new album and a new journey begins! after what I can only describe as several unpleasant years lost in a very unforgiving World. But, I feel blessed, positive and hopeful, as there are many unfortunate souls on this Planet, who are much worse off than me.
Musically I have been very active with song writing, taking much influence by going back to my Irish roots. I also found some of my old 12" vinyl record collection in my mother's attic and even with that unmistakable sound of bacon and eggs frying coming out of the speakers, Neil Young & America still sounded fantastic! There is just something so pure and organic with vinyl.
To date I have over twenty five new songs written for an acoustic based solo album entitled 'Songs from the Attic' and a further ten in place for the Phenomena Project. I plan to record the new solo album first, then tour and perform LIVE acoustically in 2016 as much as I physically can. There are other other exciting ideas connected to this, I am continuing to develop, so watch this space kiddies!
