Description

I am engulfed by foreign seas, and the sounds and cultures surrounding me. From African rhythms, to Cuban salsa dancing, to Mexican mariachi…and the music in my bones, that can be found closer to home..the ebb and flow of West Clare fiddlers, the heart-breaking tales of Northern folk singers.

Bob Dylan once said: ‘Things are too big to see all at once. I need to telescope things and ideas’. My basement is my telescope to the world; it’s misgivings…and glories.

The Basement Sessions EP consists of five tracks recorded in my Cork City basement over four hot summer days, premiered in 2018 with my Irish traditional fusion instrumental ‘The Malecón Reel’, this record encompasses my musical journeys and personal endeavours these last two years. Join me on this journey….Let’s get lost.
