Wonderful news – I have been awarded the COVID-19 Crisis Response Award by Arts Council Ireland! This will enable me to compose and record a series of pieces for guitar and electronics, which I will be publishing online for you good folks. So stay tuned for that..
Quietly in the background, for the past couple of years I have been slaving away in my home studio.. I have been recording guitars, playing synths, programming electronic beats and processing it all through a plethora of guitar pedals.
This has resulted in a four-track EP of electronic music, of which I am very proud! I would describe it as ‘dreamy, wonky, future-nostalgic hip-hop’…
Entirely recorded, produced and mixed by myself, ‘Penji’ has just been mastered in one of the finest mastering studios in the UK (who have worked with such artists as Om Unit), and I will be releasing it this spring.
Thanks to everyone who came down to the In Flow shows last week at Galway Jazz Festival! Was an absolute blast performing with the whole ensemble, which featured the wonderful Matthew Jacobson on drums, as well as Andrew Madec, Simon Kenny and Alain Halimi! AMW Visual also did an absolutely amazing job on the visuals and documentary.
Thanks to the whole team at Galway Jazz Festival for having us, Ellen Cranitch, Ciarán Ryan and Matthew Berrill did a fantastic job on putting together the best festival yet!
A friend of mine AKA Black Tongue Visual Media, made a beautiful video about me recently. It was the first in a series of featurettes on creative people in Galway and further afield.
