hello...

I'm an Ashford, Co. Wicklow-based singer/songwriter who was born and grew up in Dublin, Ireland. From an early age I've loved music. Early influences and favourites included Bowie, Queen, Dylan and Cohen, Steely Dan, James Taylor, Joni Mitchell and Carole King. I'm now inspired by a smorgasbord of anything and everything - pop, rock, folk, ballads, traditional Irish music and classical.

 

I've always been attracted to strong lyrics allied to good melody and my influences hopefully translate into soulful, introspective songs alternated with high energy rhythmic blasts, as evidenced by the polar opposites of OTM Dancing and Love Lost on my 'Sing About' EP.

Outside of writing and composing I like walking my dog. Glendalough and Kilmacurra National Botanic Arboretum are the 2 favourite places I like to walk.  

Surrounded by the beauty of the Wicklow Mountains, inspiration comes from many sources and the walks in the quiet spaces help to shape the songs that define me.

I released my debut single ‘Givin' It All’ in June 2020 followed by ‘Sweet Summer Love’ in August of the same year. I released Bodhana'a prayer in 2022 as a charity song to help raise funds for the Irish Red Cross Ukraine Appeal fund. This was followed in the same year by my first  EP 'Sing About' featuring 4 of the songs I wrote and recorded remotely during the lockdown period at Puddbag Studios.
