His name is Luka

Luka Bloom performed for GLAS at the Collège des Coudriers in Geneva last Saturday and I had the honour of being his opening act. To sing my own songs for a crowd of around 250 – including many, many friends – while a musician of Luka Bloom’s stature waited in the wings was an exhilarating experience. My […]

Cover Me, Cover You

I was thinking a while back about how much I’ve enjoyed those few times I’ve heard other people singing songs that I wrote. That train of thought prompted me to kick off a discussion on the WeAreTheMusicMakers (WATMM) subreddit, where it became clear there would be interest in an initiative where songwriters would agree to […]

Playing to the crowd

Three weeks, three very different gigs, three very different audiences. One Tuesday morning in late November I finally delivered on a promise to bring my guitar down to the crèche that Robert and Declan attend, the Little Green House in Gland, to join in song-time. I had an enthusiastic audience, none more so than Robert, who […]

He got in touch earlier this week to ask whether I’d be able to quickly record some lyrics he’d written, inspired by Christy Moore’s […]

Released!

I had a pleasant surprise about six weeks ago when an email from the administrators at Radio Reddit popped into my inbox asking whether I’d agree to having one of  my songs on a compiliation album they were putting together. Fast forward to tomorrow, the release day for The Best of Radio Reddit, where track […]

Hipster roll on

It was 12 years ago in Limerick that Nigel Hughes suggested the idea of starting a band called Hipster. Some months and a few faltering first gigs later we recruited David Graham to bring some talent to the band and the phenomenon that is Hipster really took flight. Travels that took us off to various […]

A good start…

There’s a saying in Irish that goes Tús maith leath na hoibre, meaning “a good start is half the work”. I went busking in the Vondelpark yesterday as a start on my Singing for the Apes effort, managing to raise about €38 in an hour. So definitely a good start, but unfortunately far from half […]
