Minnesota, United States
Country / Contemporary Country
just a little about me and what I do.Born in Londonderry Northern ireland Relocated these days to Minnesota USA,I started my musical adventure so long ago it's darn near the year 1 LOL. Got my first guitar at the tender age of 14 almost drove my family insane till I learned to play it.But heck my Mom bought it to me so she only had herself to blame. Well practised hard almost every spare minute usually confined to the bathroom ( acoustics were better LOL) though it caused a few problems when someone had to go cause oft times I was singing and strumming so loud I didnt hear the agonising cries outside the door.I sounded a bit like the proverbial banshee wailing back then in fact me & the cat sang harmonies. By 19 I was out there doing my Thang on the pub and club circuit earning a crust or two and picking up all the playing tips I could from my peers this stood me in good stead for future years where I toured extensively all around Europe in Country & Country Rock bands life was good tiring but good, then I got married HECK that put an end to the touring LOL but not the playing I concentrated on doing more gigging around Ireland then. Started songwriting in my late 20's but most never saw the light of day as the bread & butter was earned doing the Covers of the day folks just didnt wanna hear the inate ramblings of the singer/songwriter.
That was the trend till I kinda quit for a while in my late thirties but still kept writing just for my own pleasure. Then came the age of technology and the INTERNET That got me kinda interested in playing again so I dug out the guitar and for the first time ever people actually clapped when I sang an original song . It felt good so I kept on going LOL.
. The songs featured here are from my latest Album "South of Anywhere " featuring 16 all original tracks penned by myself and three tracks co-written by myself & Buddy Sutton a great songwriter from Waterford in Ireland all the songs are composed and performed by yours truly and range in content from heartfelt Country Ballads to upbeat Country Pop in fact in my opinion there's a little bit of something for everyone on this Album. The entire Album is available here at Song Vault you can preview all the tracks and purchase it as either an Album download or just buy your favorite tracks, either way you will make an ageing Country Singer very happy. Thank you for visiting the page here at SongVault and I sincerely hope you enjoyed the music. Take care , God Bless and "Keep It Country " Ya'll.
