Original Songs

A new song called Never Been Told and an edit of my tribute to Ireland called Ireland Bound:

 

Dusting Off The Guitar

More Music

I got a bit of time to upload some new songs and other ones which I have had the chance to edit. Been a while since I have had the time to do so and it feels good to revisit songs which I haven’t listened to since I recorded them.

So here they are. Ranging from original songs (and an original song / story about the Irish Famine) and a few cover songs too.

I hope you like them.

Rumours (original song about the Irish Famine)

Last Night (acoustic cover of The Strokes song)

 

I’ll Meet You There One Day (original song for Palestine)

 

There Won’t Be Many Coming Home (Roy Orbison cover)

Hello (Adele Cover)

Rust (original)

Rivers Run Clear (original)

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 šŸ˜€

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

Lifebelt

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 šŸ™‚

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 – Sins of Ireland

Junior Chills – Sins of Ireland

I haven’t gave much thought into writing anything about this song if I’m honest but I’llĀ run with it and see where it takes me.

If you have listened to my other songs you will know that the music sounds very similar toĀ the song ‘Hoops’…that’s because it is!! But thisĀ song was wrote first and I couldn’t find any other music to fit in…actually,Ā I didn’t even try.Ā The song is called ‘Sins of Ireland’ but I think it is more of a satirical song which delves into some popularĀ misconceptionsĀ aboutĀ the Irish – we are all alcoholics, we all know Irish dancing, we love gambling (but this could be more of a local stereotype where someone who loves gambling would be said toĀ put money on two flies racing up a wall).

Each verse looks at a different month of the year: May, July, September, December,Ā February, March / April and tells a story about what happened in each month between a married couple.

I think that the line I love the most in the song is ‘In the rain of July lad, I decided to take a trip, I brought the wife to Cashel Rock, and I left her there in Tipp (Tipperary)’. Typically weather in July would be nice, maybe even warm. In Ireland the weather is, more times than not, a nice cool, cloudy, rainy constant…even during the summer.

St Patrick’s Day and the third day of Cheltenham…fuck it! Few pints and a few bets šŸ˜‰

Enjoy folks and remember to TĆ³g Ć© go bog Ć©Ā

Junior Chills – Emerald Isle (Original)

Junior Chills – Emerald Isle (Acoustic Original)

It took me quite a lot of time to decide whether or not to put this song onlineā€¦and the songs which are to follow. It was a decision I made on the basis of history and my love for history and I didnā€™t want to miss the chance due to the significance of 2016. This year is the centenary of the Easter Rising, which was an event which took place throughout Ireland in 1916 with a focus on Dublin City Centre. It was an event which triggered a whole series of events which would transform the political landscape of Ireland forever.

The song itself is a brief, maybe rushed, synopsis of Irelandā€™s history. There are a lot of different events alluded to in the song and the order is quite disjointed. I think that this is because when I wrote the song different periods of Irelandā€™s history were coming to me at different times and I liked the way that it did not flow chronologically.

Although academics would frown on this being included here, if you want a brief history of Ireland check out the following link:

All in all, the message in the song is one of hope for Ireland. Hope and peace.

I hope you like it.
