Live On KCLR FM Tomorrow Morning Ahead Of IMRO Songwriting Workshops


Hi folks,

I’m delighted to tell you that I will be live on air with the very lovely John Masterson on KCLR FM tomorrow morning just after 11am.

I will be chatting with John about my upcoming songwriting workshop in Muine Bheag Vocational School Bagenalstown Co. Carlow this Monday morning.

I am partnering up with IMRO (Irish Music Rights Organisation) to bring 2/3 hour workshops to 5 selected secondary schools in Ireland funded by IMRO.

You might remember a few years back I held a songwriting workshop with the transition year girls from Presentation Secondary School Clonmel in association with IMRO for RTE’s Big Music Week.

The song written during my workshop titled ‘My Hero’ became a great success and was released for St Vincent De Paul Charity two weeks before Christmas reaching number 7 in the Irish charts. Paddy Power was even taking bets for a Christmas number 1.

The workshop will consist of two / three hours focusing on lyrics, melody, songwriting & performance, Q & A and a  fully composed song written by the end of the workshop which the participants can record on their phones etc and perform.

Dates / times and locations are as follows;
April 03rd – Muine Bheag Vocational School Bagenalstown Co. Carlow 9-11 am 
April 04th – Presentation School Wexford – 9-11am
April 24th – Colaiste Chill Mhantain Wicklow 9-11am

Live Performance of ‘Day Is Done’ on Declan Sessions


Good morning :)

Hope y’all had a lovely weekend.

On a stormy day at Wicklow Harbour and my beloved hometown, I met Declan and performed ‘Day Is Done’ from my ‘Roll The Dice’ EP on the couch.

Declan is a 1985 VW Camper-van who travels around Ireland filming musicians, showcasing some fabulous Irish talent.

The whole experience was wonderful and I enjoyed every second.

Check out the performance below and please feel free to like and share :)
