Bio

I based this EP all around my recent trip to the USA. My family there, one in particular, had lost everything to the needle; house, car, job, livelihood, esteem. Anyway he's up again and living life, and tries to live his life by a piece written by Oriah Mountain Dreamer. Its a great piece, called The Invitation (google it/her name) and I wrote the song The Fireside based on the piece and my cousin.

City Girl is the first song I wrote, when my girlfriend said I should write about something that inspired me (just a faint whiff of oozing mozerella there, forgive me, but JP said you have to feed your soul, man.)

Same old thoughts is self explanatory, I was 3,000 miles away from my City Girl.

The genius (actually, however loosely tossed around, like some magazine at a scout camp) who made the artwork for the cd suggested the latin Strata Corneum consulo Mountain Dreams... which basically means the hard skin on the soles of your feet (as in a journey) to reflect on Mountain Dreams. he then took my footprints on paint, and the cover is what you get... All the music (except backing vocals and keyboards/Piano) is live, three take stuff. Excellent musicians on the disc include Pat McManus of Mama's Boys, Liam Bradley (Henry McCullough, Van Morisson, Paul Brady, Mary Black, Ronan Keating) Odhrain Devlin first pro session on Bass, John McCullough on keys and definitely not least Johnny Toman on banjo. Enjoy!
