I'm a 22 year old singer-songwriter. I play a mean guitar, I'm known for my ability to mimic any singers but most importantly, I sound like myself. I play pop, rnb, country, rock n roll, blues and everything else.! And I ain't shy about it!

Biography

About Me…
I am a 22 year old singing songwriter and I come from a family of musicians in Co. Limerick, Ireland. I began playing guitar and singing at the age of twelve and at this time I would perform at local musicals and theatre productions. At the age of fifteen, I started playing pub gigs with my Dad almost every weekend. Having finished school, I was accepted into Stiofán Naofa, one of Ireland's best Music Management & Sound courses in Cork. It was during my two years here that I began to write songs and I got much inspiration from the talent around me.
I achieved a distinction in overall performance and went on to play the tourist scene in Crete, Greece for three months. A few months after this, I went to New Zealand alone, determined to spread my music. Australia was the next stop and after writing my first album from Bondi beach, I’ve returned to Ireland to record and promote myself as an independent, broke-as-you-like musician.
The album, which I’ve just finished recording, is called Midnight Mail. It’s got mixed tempos, emotions and styles! I’m hoping to release it in November.

Lyrics

If I Had A Man

Written By: Yvonne McCarthy

If I Had A Man

My body may be sleeping but my mind’s awake to you
And I’m listenin’ out for certain doors to open on the cue
And no way would I be sat here solving murders on tv
If there was a man good enough for me

If I had a man who was good to me
He’d never stay in the pub all night, that’s a guarantee
Well maybe I’d be there and he’d be home sleepin’ all alone
If there was a man good enough for me

He’d bring me hot chocolate with Sunday’s magazine
And after he’s cooked dinner fresh strawberries and cream
See I wouldn’t be all over the place after a couple of G&T’s
If there was a man good enough for me

If I had a man who was good to me
He’d never stay in the pub all night, that’s a guarantee
Well maybe I’d be there and he’d be home sleepin’ all alone
If there was a man good enough for me

If I had a man, if there was a man

If I had a man, if there was a man

If I had a man, if there was a man

Good enough for me, good enough for me, good enough for me...!
