New Video for 'On The Mississippi'

 Hi there,

Thanks for dropping by. Here is a video I made for 'On The Mississippi' taken from our recent album 'The Soft Animal'. The track was originally a sort of lullaby I sang with my daughter. Then I started thinking about the lyrics a little and it became a song about beginning afresh, a song about redemption. I shot the video in Louisiana. 

If you like it you can support us by buying the track directly from:



Alternatively, if you are a Spotify user, you can help us out by saving 'On The Mississippi' and adding it to your playlists. 

Thanks a million,

Video for Ag Ol, ag Ol ag an Garbhóg

I wrote this song with Enda Reilly a few years ago. Sitting overlooking Sligo from Knocknarea Mountain I was struck by the county's beauty. That in itself is not something particularly rare or uncommon, the landscape being so stunning, but on this occasion I felt connected to the past and to the many who had shared the same feeling I was experiencing. From Knocknarea I could see the Garavogue, the river on which Sligo is built. It became a song about memory and how strongly we can feel a sense of connection to a place.
