Biography

Dublin Singer/Songwriter, Geraldine Mangan's debut original album "This Is The Life For Me” is due for release in September 2008.

Her previous cover album “Favourite Songs Collection” was featured
as "Album of the Week" on many Irish radio stations.

When Geraldine was 14 she was a finalist in the "All Ireland
Teenage Songwriter of the Year Competition" which was
televised from the Harcourt Hotel.

At age 16 she won the "St. Michael's Secondary School
Talent Contest" for singing one of her own songs
and accompanying herself on guitar.

In 1980 Geraldine sang in the "National Song Contest" when
Johnny Logan won with Shay Healy's "What's another year".

She began singing professionally when Liam Harrison
("Give it a lash Jack") asked her to join his band, Fantasy,
and since then Geraldine has performed with many Jazz/Pop
bands over the years, working with well known musicians.

But, for Geraldine, song writing has always been to the fore and
in July 2005 she turned professional as a solo artist.

While recording the current album, Geraldine has received
ongoing advice, direction and critique from Jimmy MacCarthy.

“One of the nicest voices I have ever heard - really defined.
The songs are very well written and produced, really good.”
Terry Cullen, Turtle Records UK.

“Her voice is lovely to listen to and we will certainly be playing
tracks from this album. I have also listened to some of her
tracks online. They are also well worth a listen.” Cynthia Morahan,
Presenter, Clare FM 2

“Voice like velvet” Robbie Daly, Annalivia FM

"Lovely Pleasant Listening" Bill Kenaflic, presenter on
Cry 107.2FM Radio Youghal

"On hearing Geraldine Mangan's cd it was like a sound of
velvet in my ears. I compare her voice to Nina Simone
and Jackie D Shannon. An album that has to be heard
and appreciated in the right company. You will be hearing
more of Geraldine." Presenter of Drive Time,
John Moloney, Tipperary Mid West Radio

Lyrics

This Is The Life For Me

Written By: Geraldine Mangan

THIS IS THE LIFE FOR ME

Whenever I am hurting
When tears are in my eyes
When worry is boring my mind
When I am face to face
With my deepest fear
And there is no escape
I hear a voice inside me say

There is a love that lasts forever
Love of life will set me free
Me and this world get along together
This is the life for me
There is a love that lasts forever
Love of life will set me free
Me and this world get along together
This is the life for me

When loneliness surrounds me
Everywhere I go
When no one understands me or knows
When my dreams are fading
When tomorrow seems unclear
When my heart is yearning
I hear a voice inside me say

Whenever I am hurting
When tears are in my eyes
When worry is boring my mind
When I’m giving up
When I’m giving in
When I’ve had enough
A voice inside me says

My Number 1

Written By: Geraldine Mangan

MY NUMBER 1

first thing in the morning light
last thing when I close my eyes
everyday by my side
always with me

I feel you deep inside
my confidant my guide
making all things right
as they should be

never have you let me down
you’re the king that I crown
many friends I have found
but none so true

you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
no matter what may come
you’ll always be my no. 1

in everything I see
in the very heart of me
in the air that I breathe
I find you

showing me the wrong and right
taking me to higher heights
the only one I’ll need in life
to see me through

never will I turn away
you’re the one I obey
many lovers come to play
but none like you

you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
you’ll always be my no. 1
no matter what may come
you’ll always be my no. 1
