Creativity Sensitivity


Exam procrastination has drove me to record and put up a few songs that have been neglected. Here is another one…

Probably going to regret not doing more…but here’s an xray of a skull so you know my head is in the right place.



Rivers Run Clear – original


It’s been quite a while since I last posted anything or checked much on this. Recorded this wee nombre so thought I would put it online for anyone to listen to 😀

Junior Chills – I’ll Swim Again (original)

I have been fairly quiet on this for a long time. Haven’t posted much of anything. Decided to go back to university to study so that alone coupled with part time work and full time fatherhood I don’t really have time to bless myself 😀

But I have been still writing and playing away in the background. I had a bit of spare time this morning so thought I would rustle this one up quickly and fire it online.

Hope you like it!!


Singer / Songwriter Competition


I decided to enter a singer / songwriter competition for the craic. Like various attempts in the past I will probably receive a juicy rejection email but sure it’s all for a bit of fun anyway.

I wrote and recorded a new song recently and it just so happened to be 3 minutes long which was a stipulation for the competition. So if you have 3 minutes to spare please have a listen to it.

You can vote also but only do so if you think its alright 🙂


On The Lonesome Road (original album)

Junior Chills – On The Lonesome Road (original album)

With the onset of fatherhood and a return to education I haven’t had the time I once had to regularly update my WordPress page. However I have been endlessly writing new songs to keep ‘stress’ at bay. I find that writing my songs are the easiest part but finding time to record them is quite tedious. Nevertheless I got a few hours today to upload not just one song but a handful which I have put into a wee album.

The songs explore a lot of different topics well the usual ones that I explore anyway. Although I love playing all the songs I write, I particularly enjoy Daydreaming, Stress and Ireland Bound.

So check it out. Give it a listen to. Find out a song which sticks out for you and let me know. Any and all feedback is greatly received and appreciated.

Hope you enjoy it.


Junior Chills – Duel At Sundown (Original)

Duel at Sundown 

I suppose it sounds more ominous than it actually is which is simply a short instrumental piece to introduce a few songs which I have wrote.

I would like to think that if I was savvy with garageband I would introduce a small drum beat and maybe some form of electric guitar riff to mirror what I play on the acoustic. However I am unable to import my own songs to garageband 😦 I can only create ones afresh…so for the meantime this will have to suffice!!

I hope you like it.


Junior Chills – Wake Up World 

Wake Up World

Following the 38 billion dollar military aid agreement between the US and Israel and the ongoing occupation and subjugation, discrimination and murder of Palestinians at the hands of the latter I decided to put a few thoughts into a new song called Wake Up World. I didn’t even try to hide the song behind an obscure title as I want to be as blunt and as forward as possible – Wake Up World. Wake up to what is happening in Palestine… can’t we see that Apartheid is here?

So this is the second of my protest songs about what is happening in Palestine right now.

I hope you like it.


‘Smell That Night’ -Original song by Junior Chills

Junior Chills – Smell That Night

‘Smell That Night’ is one of the eight songs from the album ‘Eight New Roses’. I have wrote previously about how this song was created and the influences for writing the song but I like it so much that I wanted to put it online. I didn’t realise that by creating and distributing an album through a site that I would have no control over how much people would have to buy it for. I think next time I will write a handful of songs and put them onto WordPress in one block as an album…that means they’ll be on YouTube and SoundCloud for free. Well this is the start of me doing that process for my first album…

I hope you like it as much as I do. It does sound different from my usual singing / playing  but I think that’s a good thing.

Let me know what you think 🙂

P.S. The video was randomly created by free online footage of World War One…although the song has absolutely nothing to do with WWI I thought it looked pretty different…



Junior Chills – Far From The Road

Far From The Road (original)

This is a song I wrote several months ago in an attempt to compose a simplistic song. Very basic chord progressions and lyrics seemed to fit together well so I thought it was a good time to put it online.

Bit of a stretch vocally but sure if you don’t try, you won’t know…

I suppose, looking at it, Far From The Road is a bit of a romantic number. It discusses how places link memories, how affection can make everything else seem irrelevant…quite like Blanche I suppose with her quote ‘ There are things that happen between a man and woman in the dark that sort of make everything else seem unimportant’.

Just a thought. Just a song.

I hope you like it.



Junior Chills – Salmons’ Dream

Salmons’ Dream

Very random title. Very random song. I think I have always been fascinated with the bullshit theory that fish have only a three second memory…I think this could have been spawned from a fishing trip where I caught a fish with a hook in the eye, took it off, threw it back in and then caught the same dumb ass mutilated fish again…which I then brought home because being Irish I thought there was an old proverb somewhere that said ‘Catch a fish and give it to the sea, catch it again and you’ll get cash money moneeeeee’…I made that up…

I don’t think that they do have three second memories. But do they dream? What if they did dream? Would a salmon dream about walking down the road…this reminds me of Billy Connolly’s joke about how Wildebeast don’t know that they’re wildebeasts because there are no mirrors in the Serengeti Plain…this salmon in the story doesn’t think he’s a fish…he thinks he’s one of those walking things dandering about on the shore line!!

Again it is just a wee song that I put together…I have never dreamt that I have been a salmon so it’s unrealistic that the salmon would dream of being us…why would they? Christ, it’s just a song!!

I hope you like it.
