Biography

I fell off my bike when I was 15 and broke my left arm and sprained my right - It was then I realised how much music meant to me 'cos I couldn't play the chord of C properly on the guitar. Music is my work and music is my love - I've been lucky enough to be in different bands and travelled far and wide, up and down and I've played some really great gigs and met some amazing people (Sir George Martin, lots of people I admire and ..... the Queen of England - weird ! I love that music makes me laugh so hard 'cos of the stuff that happens and the strangest people in the most unlikely places you meet along the way - Of course I want to sell 40 million records and be on the tip of your tongue but for me it's about the journey and not the destination and so far the journey is on the up .....I released my debut album “Cartoon Moon” last year to surprisingly great reviews likening it to a mix of Jeff Buckley/Beatles/Crowded House and I have two songs on movies coming out this year and early next year “07 in the USA “Light Years Away” and “Lost On The B-Side”. I spent March, April and October this year (Oct was CMJ) in New York playing in clubs with a full band and getting to know the place and playing some great gigs and getting very pleasing reviews.

Cartoon Moon

Written By: Scott Maher

Cartoon Moon---------------------------S.Maher. (IMRO) 5/07/04

I keep images of you and me
Pushing paper sails into the sea
And underneath a cartoon moon we glow

Delicate her hands are still so young
To give you any secrets that have twisted her
Elated her or hastened her to grow

Do you feel well Inside
Do you feel well Inside, Inside, Inside Ahhh

Inches crawl beneath my feet
Soon they make their way to miles
My feet may stray but my heart will never leave you

Opening it all to have it out
Waiting for the sea to have it’s say
And underneath a cartoon moon we glow

Do you feel well Inside
Do you feel well Inside, Inside, Inside Ahhh

She is spinning in a mantra
The sand beneath her toes
I am begging her forgiveness
She’s gathering her foes
Gathering her foes

Inside, Inside, Inside Ahhh .

Cinema Smile

Written By: Scott Maher/Steven Farrell

Cinema Smile --------------------------- S.Maher/ S.Farrell

Touch the Ink on your Feet
I am lost in your caress
Watch enough and I can see
We’re naked in my head

C’mon baby lets talk for a while
Don’t lose your mind
C’mon baby your cinema smile
Makes everything right

Hide in the Crowd , Stealin’ the show
Keepin’ me guessin’ which way to go
Oh

Felt the pulse as it landed on my tongue
And filled my song
We are one, I disappeared into her kiss
Where I belonged
C’mon Baby lets talk for a while and lose our minds
C’mon baby your Cinema smile makes everything right

Hide in the Crowd , Stealin’ the show
Keepin’ me guessin’ which way to go

(Babababababababa)

Hide in the Crowd , Stealin’ the show
Keepin’ me guessin’ which way to go
Show me again, your cinema smile
Talk for a while……………..

The People We Were

Written By: Scott Maher

The People We were---------------------------S.Maher.

Well I hold the day I met you
I threw your daughter off my knee
Gave my intentions with a smile that only youth could guarantee

And you took us to the Abbey
Where you steeped us in tradition
We passed the summer and the winter in my head began to lift

Is there a gentleman among us?
I hesitate to ask
With a grain of your ambition
Or the faith to see it last

Somethin’ for the people that we were…..
Somethin’ for the ones we long to be……
Another for a time we wont forget easily……

As you walked the road less travelled
You took the Autumn with you
And in the embers of our youth we hate to see it passin’ by

Somethin’ for the people that we were…..
Somethin’ for the ones we long to be……
Another for a time we wont forget easily……
