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 🙂

The Sheep and the Wolf


Junior Chills – The Sheep and the Wolf
A short music video I decided to put together for my song “The Sheep and the Wolf” from the album “On The Lonesome Road”.

One hundred and seventy seven songs now wrote. Just need a few extra hours per day to sort them, practice them, record to a half decent quality and then upload via a blog post on here and social media. Not to mention create a music video per each!! 

Anyway. Here’s “The Sheep and the Wolf”.

It’s probably my favourite from the album. Have a listen and let me know what you think.

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.

  1. Daydreaming
  2. I’m Crashing
  3. Sheep and Wolf
  4. Lonesome Road
  5. Stress

Hope you enjoy them. Share them about if you get the chance too 🙂

Much love.

Junior Chills – Milltown (original)

Where I come from there is a cemetery, by the same name as the song,  overlooked by the Black Mountain. This song is, I suppose, about the place…the place, down in the ground, where the dead men go.

Writing this now it actually reminds me of the scene in Life of Brian where John Cleese’ character is giving orders for the woman to be stoned only for him to be crushed by a huge block of stone…

Morbidly, this is the place where I will one day go.

Maybe they will bring back that old norseman tradition of sticking me on top of a pyre on a wooden ship…launch me out to sea…and set me on fire….

Fuck it. Norseman way all the way.
