NEW YEAR GREETINGS

luan

Happy New Year folks,

Hope y’all had a lovely Christmas & are having a great start to 2019. I have lots of exciting plans in the pipeline for this year, the big one being the release of my new album which I’ve been recording since last April.

I signed my first record deal with Ainm Records when I was 12 following an appearance on RTE 1’s Kenny Live, just an innocent fresh faced young one…I recorded my first album ‘First Impressions’ & that was it…I was bitten by the bug.

I signed my next record deal at 20 with Sony Music, signed again when Sony merged with BMG & signed for a third time with Sony when they became just ‘Sony’ once more. I spent a long time flying back & forth to London & America working with some of the worlds most successful Grammy winning songwriters & producers to release my next album ‘Free’ which was produced by ‘Altered Images’ drummer & guitarist Stephen Lironi. I also recorded an album with Grammy winning producer Bill Bottrell in Mendocino California (Michael Jackson, Shelby Lynne, Tom Petty, Prince etc) which has yet to be released.

By now I had signed a management contract in London with Twenty First Music Management which was owned by Elton John. One of the highlights for me was opening for Elton 3 nights at the Hammersmith Apollo with my then UK based band before we toured all over the UK.

In 2010 I released ‘The Full Circle’ independently. Up to that point I had spent most of my life signed and so it felt like the right thing to do for me at that time both musically & personally, I learned first hand the day to day workings of running your own record label…a great learning experience. ‘Roll The Dice’ EP followed after that which was another independent release.

With over 20 years working as a professional musician & still only in my 30’s I have never been as excited for an album release as I am for this next one. The fire in my belly has only ignited & the recording process has been an absolute joy.

It’s 80 percent recorded & then will be ready for mixing & mastering….

I cannot wait to share this with you all, watch this space :)
