Live Performance on Newstalk – Listen Here


Hey guys,

Over the weekend I had a perfect excuse (although I never need one) to visit my beautiful hometown of Wicklow for a very special live broadcast from Wicklow’s Historical Gaol.

On Saturday morning I joined the lovely Bobby Kerr for a chat and live performance of ‘Free’ from my album ‘Free’ for a live broadcast of ‘Down To Business’ on Newstalk.

Photographer Michael Kelly was on hand to take a few pictures which I have posted below.

I was so thrilled to meet one of my childhood idols on the morning who was in attendance on the morning….Mr Don Conroy. I loved watching Don’s show on RTÉ 1 as a child so it was such a treat to get to meet the man himself, and what a gentleman he was and happy to pose for a snap.



Looking after us all so well with tasty treats and endless cups of tea and coffee were Eoin and Blathnaid from The Jailers Rest. If you’re stopping by Wicklow be sure to pop in to The Jailers Rest for lunch. It’s one of my favourite places, you won’t be sorry. Try the Jailers special…it won’t disappoint.


Huge thanks to Littlewoods Ireland for decking me out in this gorgeous little outfit. Shop the look at www.littlewoodsireland.ie

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 :)
