Description of practice/Biography

I am a singer/songwriter based in Leitrim. My songs are usually of the protest variety, inspired by social injustice at home and abroad, I released my first album, "Oblivious" in March 2018 (see video link), with sleeve notes by Christy Moore, Paul Brady and Steve Wall. My song "Oblivious" has been covered by Christy Moore, and appears on his "Lily" album. I have performed in with artists such as Christy Moore, Damien Dempsey, Declan O'Rourke and Andy Irving in venues including Vicar Street and Liberty Hall. I am at present working on a solo piano album of lesser known Irish melodies.
