Estonian TV Performances

I had the most amazing trip to Estonia to perform at Acoussion festival last week! Thanks so much to everyone involved, especially Tarmo Sick for the invitation to play. Check out my Instagram account for some photos of the beautifully preserved city of Tallinn.

I also got to perform on live television while I was there, and both of the performances are now available on YouTube.

I’ll be releasing another song/video from the new album next Tuesday 18.04, so check back in then for that!

I’ve already begun rehearsing with my fantastic band who some of you know (Mark Dudley – electric guitar / Eoin Hartwieg – bass / Patrick Hopkins – drums) and I’m super excited by how it’s sounding. I’ll also be joined by a host of wonderful singers and string players to mark the occasion so please do come and join us! My friend Emma O’Reilly will be providing support and she’s fairly savage like.

New Song Out Now!

My new song ‘Swallow Me’ is released today for your listening pleasure! The video by Donal Higgins makes use of footage from a 1956 film called ‘Rock Rock Rock’ which starred Chuck Berry (RIP!). The song was recorded between Windmill Lane and Lamplight Studios in Dublin and features Mark Dudley on electric guitar, Eoin Hartwieg on bass and Patrick Hopkins on drums (for full track credits see here or here).

The song hasn’t appeared on Spotify or iTunes for me yet, but it’s currently available to stream right here, or to download via Bandcamp.

It’s taken from my forthcoming album ‘The Roaring Girl’ which I’ll be launching in Bello Bar Dublin on the 4th of May. Tickets are available here and I’d love to see you there!

Thanks for all your support, hope you like the song!

On the Home Stretch…

The album has been mastered. Holy moly, I never thought this day would come. And boy am I excited to start sending these songs on their merry way out into the world! Since we’re nearing the finish line, now seems as good a time as any to share some artwork with you. This beautiful illustration was created by the splendiferously talented artist Mark Hill.

Stay tuned for news about the launch and release dates! Thanks so much for sticking with me, especially to all the crowdfunders who made this possible.
