I’ve been making music since I was 6 years old.
“A brutally honest songwriter and a clutch of deeply personal songs.”
‘‘The reason I use a loop pedal now is ‘cos I saw Gary Dunne use a loop pedal. I was was just blown away." ED SHEERAN
“One of Ireland’s strongest musical exports in years.”
“…an eclectic spirit…spiky, longing & joyous…beguiling melodies.”
THE SUNDAY TIMES
I’ve released two albums and three EPs. (Links at the bottom of this page.) My debut album, Twenty Twenty Fiction, went Top Twenty in Ireland and my debut single, Constant Motion, was selected as the opener on the Best of UK Unsigned album.
- Good Things EP 2002
- The Lost EP 2002
- Twenty Twenty Fiction (album) 2005
- Simple Truth (album) 2008
- Head to Heart EP 2014
My roots are in four-track recorders, acoustic guitars and the singer-songwriter clubs of Dublin and London.
I’ve played everywhere from The Edinburgh Festival to Shepherd’s Bush Empire, and from Greenwich Village songwriter nights to O2 in The Park in front of 100,000 people.
Live, I use a technique called 'live-looping', which involves live-recording my guitar and voice to create improvised backings for my songs.
I’ve been lucky enough to perform with artists like:
- Damien Rice
- Ed Sheeran
- Joseph Arthur
- Damien Dempsey
- Glen Hansard
I’ve also run music workshops in places like Battersea Arts Centre, The Centre for Talented Youth and in inner city schools in the UK and Ireland.
