New record out now!

Songs of Love & Regret

New solo record out now!

I’m delighted to share with you all my new solo record, SONGS OF LOVE AND REGRET. This was recorded last summer at the Beach Cottage Studio and home in Bantry, Ireland where I’ve been living ever since the recording sessions (it was too beautiful and warm to leave behind)!

Last spring marked the end of a long-term relationship for me and this record is my attempt at making sense of it all. It doesn’t just apply to my own experiences. I wanted to make a record in which we’d all be able to relate and share the same feelings of love, regret, happiness, remorse and everything else that goes with it! For me this record is about building up and breaking down, acknowledging, processing and putting it all to bed. If this record can do just a little bit of that for you, I’ll have done my job.

I was honored to have some very talented musicians lend their skills in the making of this record. Bean Dolan and Dave Hastie of Jukebox Gypsy and Brian Murphy of Arrow in the Sky, amongst others, fleshed out these songs beautifully.

Songs of Love and Regret is available as a digital download here.
There will be a limited run of the record on digipack with artwork illustration by Agustina Balcarce. You can also order a limited edition hard copy digipack (folded cardboard case) of the record, which features artwork illustration by Agustina Balcarce and comes with a personally signed and illustrated album card.
