Nice write-up in Connacht Tribune this week! Being in Zinc was a formative time for me, and helped me to have a free approach to writing and producing with the new Penji record.
I’m delighted to announce that my debut EP of electronic music is out May 21st on all platforms!
I am releasing under the alias Penji, and here is the beautiful artwork by long-time collaborator AMW Visual
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.
Stay tuned for an exact release date in May!
‘Behind The Mask’ out now
Electric Dreams bring their unique brand of feel-good grooves and catchy hooks to the table with their debut album ‘Behind The Mask’. A diverse bunch, the band’s sound sits snugly in between pop, RnB and indie, and their music comes with a message of inclusion and community.
Crisp beats, sparkly guitars and melodic synths come together with upbeat lyrics to make for an unforgettable sound. Entirely written and recorded by the band in their Galway-based studio, the six track album was polished off by veteran producer Bob Macciochi of SC Mastering, UK.
Electric Dreams are supported by That’s Life; the award-winning arts programme of the Brothers of Charity Services, Galway. That’s Life offers people with intellectual disability opportunities to discover and realise their artistic potential, through working with established artists and participating in high-quality arts programmes.

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.
