Me and the BatKa at the Fête de la musique

I played in Nyon last Saturday as part of the 2018 Fête de la musique. It was the first performance (of many, hopefully!) for which I was joined by Olivier Gauthey, a super-talented percussionist and drummer based just down the road in Gland. (He also teaches drumming at his studio, Go’n’play.) I sang nine of my own songs, including a...

The Moi Aussi video

I wrote previously about how I came to write the song Moi Aussi. I sang it live at the Zentrum Paul Klee in Bern on St. Patrick’s Day, a performance which served as the basis for the video below. The video was published to mark World Down Syndrome Day 2018 on 21 March. As I type this, the Facebook post...

A song for Robert

My Silver Son is a song I wrote for my second son Declan, just before he turned two. I finally managed, a couple of months ago, to write one for my first son Robert. First In My Eyes is a song about being a father, making the most of the time we have with our kids, and the hopes we have...

Eoghan O'Sullivan singing at Le Box

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 took his place right next...

In search of the Perfect Christmas video

A quick recap: David Graham and I wrote and, in 2013, recorded a Christmas song We had a nice animated video made for it, and tried the DIY approach to promoting the single for Christmas 2013… …without a huge amount of success So we spent a bit of money to hire a promoter for Christmas 2014; alas, once again without...

Selling myself

I’m excited about a gig I have coming up on Friday this week, when I’ll play at Le Box, in Carouge. I’m one of two support acts, with a duo called Zepless at the head of the bill. It’s a dedicated music venue with a proper audio and lighting set-up, dedicated sound engineer and – hopefully – a nice warm...

Iain’s Acoustic Jukebox

Last night in Mullligan’s of Geneva I was joined by friends, old and new, for The Acoustic Jukebox, an evening to remember Iain Twigg and raise money for The Brain Tumour Charity. What a night! The idea was that I would play any and all requests received, as long as they came with a donation. There was a minimum of...

Singing in the sunshine

Lots of al fresco musical adventures in the past six weeks or so, from jamming with Ecolint teachers at the end of an in-service training day, to doing short sets at a couple of the school fairs where I was working (in my capacity as Ecolint’s alumni guy), to our local village festival and, most recently, the Fête de la...

A song for “my silver son”

Tomorrow, 2 April 2015, our second son Declan will be one year old. As any parent to more than one child will know, there’s a huge disparity between the amount of time and attention showered on baby #1 compared to baby #2. For Robert’s first birthday we created a montage of photos of some (!) of the people he met...

Three stars and the truth

Having failed to set the world alight with our first attempt to make it to the top of the Christmas pops with our song A Perfect Christmas, we decided to have one more crack of the whip and throw a bit of money at the problem. Following 2013’s DIY approach to music promo, this time David and I (who together...
