The best kept secret in music


This band has no press


My former band, The Afternoons, released an album in the mid-90s through two independent Irish labels. The album was described by a leading music critic as the most sophisticated debut album of any Irish artist.

In October 2006 I completed my first solo outing and you can listen to some of the results of that process on Sonicbids and on


Feeling a bit camera shy


I originally played sax and wrote for an acoustic rock band before taking up guitar and concentrating more intensively on the craft of songwriting. I am a classically trained clarinettist, a Beatles and Dylan fanatic but a fan of all types of music with other favourites ranging from Radiohead to Calexico to Declan O'Rourke to John Coltrane to Miles Davies to Elvis Costello, Springsteen, Bowie, Elliott Smith etc.

My strength is my songwriting demonstrated through my command of melody and lyric and my aim is to write great songs for great artists. I think i've already written some great songs - the trick now is to get them recorded well and to get them to great artists.
