    Hello all :0

    Just wanted to give a quick update on what's happening in my world !

    On the album front, I spent two days last week in a recording studio in my hometown of Mullingar. I was putting down vocals for about 8 songs and a little guitar on one or two! Had a blast drinking my body-weight in green tea & honey to try and get my vocals all creamy and whatnot! Hopefully it did the trick :)

    At this point, almost everything is recorded, very very close to being finished (Yee-haw!). All that remains to be tracked is strings for "Pathways" "Sacred place" "Someone else's heart" and "Perfumed Letter". A date has been booked for string recordings for early April!

    Last weekend I gave my very first online-streaming mini concert from the comfort of my own home through ustream.tv! I did it with very short notice but was glad to have about 15 people tune in for the trial run! Hope to try another one this weekend, will confirm a date & time v. soon :)

    That's all the news for now,
    have a great week everybody :)

  • blog post Report Recording Jan 2010

    I am delighted to report that we made Great strides last week with the recording of my second album.

    The session took place at the wonderful Grouse Lodge Studios in Co. Westmeath (Ireland). Situated pretty much in the middle of nowhere and reachable only by navigating a network of winding roads and dirt tracks, the studio boasts some incredible sounding rooms and a collection of microphones to do these rooms justice! Previous bands and artists to have recorded here include Michael Jackson, Muse, Snow Patrol, REM, Manic Street Preachers… The list is long and impressive. It was a great honour to record in the same rooms as these great artists.

    I was joined for the session by Italian producer Filippo Gaetani and some friends and members of my live band.

    We arrived early on a Tuesday morning and worked (for the most part) pretty intensely until late into Thursday night, heading home in the early hours of Friday morning. We squeezed in a whole lot of recording in this time!

    The first song we worked on was “The Composer”, which is sounding pretty groovy, faster than the original demo version, and mostly electric-guitar driven. Gerard Toal put down some cool Cello stuff on top too which sounds Great!

    The next song I think was “Abstract Man” which again is a little more up tempo than the original and quite a bit heavier, lots of dirty electric guitars on this one, lovin’ it!

    We also worked on “Twisted Freak” a song about that little voice inside your head, hypnotic grooves on this one.

    The more mellow tunes we recorded were “Eternity” , “When You Can” & “Sleepless Street”. Really lovin’ “Eternity” at the moment, most definitely the nicest acoustic guitar sound I’ve ever had. Beautiful. “When You Can” I recorded piano and vocals in one live take late at night (after watching my beloved Tottenham being soundly trashed by liverpool, still hurting!) and Ger & Cani overdubbed some really great Cello and double bass parts. Sounding pretty magic! For “Sleepless Street” we put down Drums, upright bass and some electric & acoustic guitar parts, this is another of my favourite tracks on the album. It’s clocking in at over the 7 minute mark ! I’m also considering “Sleepless Street” as the album title…

    The last song we worked on was “Moan & Complain” which really occupies a different world to the rest of the tracks. Kinda of a drunk singing in the corner of a saloon type feel. I recorded this in a live take on upright piano…

    So that’s pretty much it, from the horse’s mouth so to speak,

    still got some bits and pieces left to do (strings, vocals etc.), I’ll keep all updates on here.

    Video Footage coming soon :)
